Live Review: Real Friends, Grayscale and Belmont

Date - 21st of October 2019
Location - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Act - Real Friends and Grayscale with support from Belmont




Belmont was the first on, opened with Hollowed Out, lost my voice for the rest of the set. They were good, but I did think that the sound was off, for the pure fact that it was the same for Real Friends and Grayscale, so Rescue Rooms, less drums more vocals please. The mix was off, however, besides that, they were actually pretty good! Absolute adored them! I got to hear Pushing Daises and Hollowed Out live so I can't complain. They were good, they had a hell of a lot of energy, more energy than I ever have. And I actually really enjoyed seeing them, it was one of them things that I wanted to see them live, and now I have can tick it off my list sort of thing.

They did put on a good show and they were bloody good at warming up the crowd, cause the pit definitely got going. My heart is happy.

Overall, 4 out of 5 lemons!


Next up was Grayscale, and this was when I realised the problem was with the sound rather than the band. They were good, I do quite like Grayscale, for me personally I was more excited about Real Friends because Real Friends were one of the first pop-punk bands I got into. But Grayscale were good, they really got the crowd going, and who doesn't wanna scream "I loved a girl named Maddison and she liked to do heroin" and the fact we were at barrier made it even better. Grayscale were quite good live, it's another one I can tick off my list, because I got to hear Atlantic which is my favourite Grayscale song.

The pit was getting intense during Grayscales set so I'm not going to complain.

Overall, 4 out of 5 lemons!



Real Friends, YES. What a set. Take a shot every time Dan came over to us and took his in-ears out and I got to scream at him! But the eye contact got a little intense. You know when you know someone's looking at you and you lock eyes and it's intense, was like that during Mess, so fun times. It gave me a whole new level of love for Real Friends. Honestly, what a band. The speech Dan did before Unconditional Love nearly made me cry and the same with Me First. Honestly, what a band. Real Friends are insane, and I want to see them again because SO. GOOD. Honestly loved em, going to put them on par with Deaf Havana when it comes to performance, because wow. Next level.

Overall, a solid 5 out of 5 lemons.

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.…
