Number;
This is an absolute tune, I was very sceptical to listen to it at first because the last track was so beautiful, so I didn't know what to initally think. However, when I took the plunge after a couple of hours, I did it and I listened to it and I loved it so much!
The sound reminds me very much of Address The World by FCTF which obviously there's going to be similarities as it's the band that Isaac fronts, but it's like that softer sound in comparison to The Illusion Of Being Fair. However, it has such a nice beat and an extremely catchy tune. The meaning behind the song is about trying not to beat yourself up for not feeling like you're doing enough with the time that you've got or 'Like your life is slipping away' (Isaac's own words). It's got a beautifully powerful set of lyrics. It has so much strength and it says a lot. It's a beautiful track, and I do really like it.
Overall I think I'd give it 4 out of 5 lemons, it's such a beautiful song and you should go and show it some love!

Hanging Up:

This was the first track that Isaac posted of his solo music on Soundcloud, but he's now properly released it onto streaming platforms and that sort of thing. So you can enjoy it on whatever platform you use.
When I first heard this song I was in love with it, every time I listen to it, it reminds me of Ed Sheeran and The 1975. It's such an incredible piece of music. It's so catchy, but that seems to be the theme with Isaac's solo music so far, it's all incredibly catchy. It gets stuck in your head and you want to play it on repeat until you're sick of it, but so far I haven't become sick of any of the three tracks.
I love the lyrics to this song, I also think this track compliments Isaac's vocal abilities so much (I miss hearing him sing live, so maybe I'll have to get myself to a show at the next opportunity). Isaac has a beautiful voice, and he can pull off a lot of things, and this track proves that. I don't think I've ever heard Isaac sing something that I haven't enjoyed.
This song is definitely my favourite that he's released so far, and I'm so glad it's readily available for the listening pleasure of everyone.
Overall Hanging Up is a solid 5 out of 5 lemons here, because wow what a masterpiece it is! I love it so much, and if you want something new to listen to then go and check this piece of music out now!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is!
