Single Review: Everything I Want by The Half Eight





So yes, The Half Eight are dropping new music all over the place currently, honestly it's almost hard to keep up as they're dropping another new track on this Friday! However, I am not complaining as I'm a sucker for a good tune off them! The Half Eight are one of my go-to bands if I'm wanting a good love song.
Everything I Want initially wasn't a song I took a lot of pleasure in, however, I was half asleep when I listened to it, and then when I came to listening to it again, I was pleasantly surprised. This time I wasn't half asleep.
I'm a sucker for a good love song currently, because love songs make me think of my favourite person, but I think most people know who that is!
Anyway, I was absolutely in love with this song when I heard it, doesn't beat Drunk Like You but I mean ya girl wants to hear Drunk Like You live, which reminds me, I got tickets to The Last First Tour and I'm so excited! I can't wait to go to the tour and have a good little bop to some good tunes!
It does very much have an 80s pop vibe to it, and that isn't a bad thing because I was raised on 80s music along with heavy metal and punk rock (my parents raised me to appreciate good music even if I am virtually deaf). This song does not disappoint, it's super catchy like every single The Half Eight track! I love it! It's one of them songs that is going to take a lot for me to get sick of hearing it!
Out of the three singles, I'd rank it second. It's rank it above Love In The Dark but not above Drunk Like You.
I love the boy's voices! it's definitely a catchy song that would make you want to dance to it, and it is the sort of song that you'd hear playing in the background of a cult classic 80s film!
I do really like the track, and it does make me really excited for their new single to drop! Honestly, they're dropping bops left, right and centre here and I'm here for it. I would 100% recommend that you go and give it a cheeky little listen!
The Half Eight are one of those hidden treasure bands but if you heard their music you'd think they were significantly bigger than they are.
Overall? A solid 5 out of 5 lemons without a doubt! Keep it up boys! And I dare say next week we might have another review of their next single!

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

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

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
