EP Review: MYMINDISOUTOFME by Distant Blue




The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived, and Distant Blue have finally dropped their highly anticipated debut EP.

The EP opens with Tongue Tied and yes, this is a song we've heard before but it's a song we all love!
I have previously voiced my opinions on this track and I'll happily voice them again.

I LOVE IT.

One of my favourite things about Distant Blue is how well they pull off their sound. Some bands can't always pull off the sound they're trying to be, and it makes me really happy when a band can pull off that sound, and Ed's voice is perfect for the sound.

I don't want to focus too heavily on the songs that have already been released because I don't want to be repeating myself, and there are some SOLID new songs on the EP!

The next song is Lucid Liar (Novocaine) which again I've voiced my opinions on. Again, I absolutely love it. I think it's a solid song, and lyrically I love it so much. I love Ed's vocals, and I really do see Distant Blue achieving great things. They're a really good pop-punk band and this song showcases that perfectly.

The next track is called Blue Noise and it's exactly that. It's simply just an instrumental track. But as filler tracks go, it's actually a good one, I'm not saying my deaf little ears want to listen to it on repeat, but it's a filler track and it's actually a good filler track. As filler tracks go, I'd put it on par with Serious Underground Dance Vibes by Twin Atlantic, and that is possibly my favourite instrumental track.

The fourth track is Come and Join The Party and I remember hearing this live at Dot To Dot. And the studio version definitely does it justice. It isn't one of them tracks that sounds completely different to the live version, and I actually really like this track. I'd go as far as to say it's my favourite off of the EP. It's a solid track and I'm actually in love with it. It makes me quite happy hearing the track cause it's just such a solid song!

The final track is titled Opiate which of course my little emo, addicted to pills, heart loved this before I even heard it. It's another solid track and I can't criticise any of the tracks on the EP because they're all amazing and I love them all to bits. They're all bangers, and this track is no different. It's got a good flow to it, and it makes me really excited to see them live again!

Overall, it's a solid EP and I cannot recommend it enough. You 100% need to go and check it out, and overall? It's getting a solid 5 out of 5 lemons πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹

Single Review: What You Want by Home Wrecked

Home Wrecked have just released their new single What You Want. Spoiler alert: it slaps. Home Wrecked are a relatively new band to me, I only discovered them about 2 months ago, but I honestly love them! One of my favourite things about this track is the progression and depth in the sound. It sounds on the heavier side of pop-punk whilst also sounding very classic pop-punk at the same time. There's just something about it that's unique and that sets them apart from the rest!

It's a very catchy track, and it's a song that's going to be stuck in my head when I stop listening to it. It sounds heavy whilst not actually being that heavy, but I love that. I would compare it to Four Year Strong and Chunk! No Captain Chunk! and in that retrospect, I guess I'm branding it as easycore, but it's so good!

I find it quite refreshing to hear this song in the pop-punk scene when a lot of bands are switching to a more mainstream, poppier sound, which isn't bad, but it…

Single Review: Out Of My Mind by AVAERA

So AVAERA are here and they’ve released their first single!
The used to be Stop The Rain but they rebranded and I’m here for it because If you know me then you know Stop The Rain had a special place in my heart.
But the new single is out and it slaps!
The new single is titled Out Of My Mind and honestly yes. What a tune!

I've been obsessed with it since it came out, and we all know I'm a sucker for a good Scottish band because Scottish accents. So, let's talk about this track.

It's got a proper catchy tune, and it's one of the most infectious songs I've heard in a long time.

It's one of them songs that once you've heard it once, you have to listen to it another 100 times before you can take a break from listening to it.

It's currently my most listened to track, and that says a lot because there's been a lot of newness recently.

It's a perfect song, and I don't often say that a song is perfect, but Out of My Mind is very much perfection.…
