Single Review: Wide Awake by Hear Lies

Okay so yes, I have another band on the books now... but that's all good! I was actually approached by Sam Christmas (Best Of Enemies) about doing this post, and as soon as I heard the track, I knew I had to do it! That's when you know it's a good song! However, because Hear Lies is a new band to the LifeIsALemon squad, I will be doing a combined song and band review! So let's get into this!
HEAR LIES

So Hear Lies are a four-piece rock band, that consists of the following
Orion Powell - Vocals
Glenn Rice - Guitar
James Macdonald - Guitar
Jake Holmes - Drums
FFO - Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, You Me At Six
So let's talk about this new video for Wide Awake!
Wide Awake was the fourth track on their EP, and they've just TODAY released the video for it! And all I'm going to say is, it's amazing.
The video reminds me of the likes of Stay by Mayday Parade (if you've seen that then it's just as heartbreaking). It's this heartbreaking mini-film style video, that really just makes you super emotional, however, I can now watch it without crying (after a good 30 times). It's such a beautiful, moving video and I think it really does do the song justice. I always get sceptical when I review a new band because I worry about if I dislike the content, however, I had nothing to be worried about with Hear Lies. They're an incredibly talented band that really do deserve some love and affection, all their links will be listed below for you to go and show them some love on!
I absolutely adore the song, and it's quite a catchy song considering it does wish to break your heart which is just lovely! I don't want to spoil the video, but it's very moving, and it's worth the few minutes that it takes to view it!
Overall, I'm going to go with a 4.5 out of 5 lemons. It's a solid video, and I look forward to keeping an eye out for anything else they decide to put out in the future. The video does offer a lot, which is nice because I get bored when watching a music video that doesn't offer me anything!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
