Twin Atlantic Are Up To Something?

As you may or may not be aware Twin Atlantic have been being cryptic again, which always tends to mean new music and we did get it.

It came in steps, but we got what we all wanted.

So if you're unaware Twin Atlantic are an alt-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. They're my favourite band, I have so much love for them, and their last album was released on the 9th of September 2016, so this has been a long time coming. I've been waiting so long for the new Twin Atlantic era.

For a week, Twin was being cryptic, which is what they always do when new music is on the horizon. For the week starting the 7th of October, they started posting cryptic videos all with a different number.

It all manifested on Friday the 11th of October when they posted that the new song was called Novocaine. That was when the numbers started making sense, if you were to type out Novocaine on a keypad on a phone, the number it would produce would be 0668622463. They then posted a link to their website, and if you typed in the number you heard a small snippet of the song... easy to say I did this a fair few times because new Twin Atlantic was what my heart needed. From those few seconds, I knew I loved the song. It was incredible, Sam's vocals were so powerful and Twin had not changed their roots.

On the 15th of October, they announced that on the 17th the new song would drop, and boy was my heart ready for it.

When Novocaine dropped I felt my soul leave my body because I'd waited so long for it and it had proved to be worth it. In my opinion, the song was a mixture of all the previous albums combined into 3 minutes. It even beat The Chaser for me, although that will always be a cult classic in my opinion. Twin Atlantic proved that the wait was worth it.

They also annoued a UK tour in which I should hopefully be going to and crying my eyes out because it's been so long!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
