Single Review: Mindreader by A Day To Remember


Ah yes, A Day To Remember have released a new song since they still don't have a release date for the album, but it's still new ADTR content so I can't complain.

I've seen a lot of mixed feelings about this track, because it's definitely not the heavier side of their sound. There's no rough vocals in it, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. ADTR are known to have slower, less aggresive songs on the albums which contrast really well with their sound. So Mindreader shouldn't come as a surprise. It's a great track, it's a really catchy song, I really like it. Is it my favourite out of the tracks released? No. Does it make me excited for You're Welcome? Yes. Has it left me wanting more? Yes. Do I still love ADTR for this track? Most definitely.

This track isn't slow and stripped back like If It Means A Lot To You or Have Faith In Me, I'd compare the track to the likes of Good Things, which I adore that track. It's very much still a classic ADTR track, the only difference is the lack of screaming, but as I said, this isn't something ADTR put in every track they do. It's a good track, and I'm not just saying that because ADTR are one of my favourite bands, I'm saying that because it's actually a decent track.

It's not the most creative track they've done, and it's nothing groundbreaking, boundary-pushing, but it still slaps! It's still a great song, and it's still catchy. If you're wanting this to be a track like The Document Speaks For Itself or You'll Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic, then I hate to disappoint you, but you have Resentment for that. I'd rank it as my least favourite of the three tracks, but I still love it and it is just that I prefer the other two, it's not that I don't love it, because in all honesty, A Day To Remember could release anything and I'd probably love it!

Overall I'd give it 4 out of 5 lemons. If you like ADTR and you haven't listened to it yet, then go ahead and do it! You might surprise yourself, don't judge the song off others opinions, just it for yourself.

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
