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!

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: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
