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.

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

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…
