Single Review: whatever makes you feel safe by Distant Blue



They're back! It's been a long time (not that long) since the release of MYMINDISOUTOFME, but they are back with their brand new single whatever makes you feel safe, and spoiler alert, it slaps!

From the first listen I am ranking it up there in my top 3, Distant Blue don't have a bad song but this song is next level insane. It reminds me of Bring Me The Horizon and Trash Boat. It's the perfect song, it's heavier than their other tracks, but I'm here for it. This song makes me excited about music, it's the song I want to hear live, so lads when this whole thing blows over and the worlds back to normal, a gig yeah?

So it's heavier than their other tracks, but it's fast-paced, it's energetic, it's an anthem. This track proves that Distant Blue get better and better with the more tracks they put out. Hearing this track, makes me feel so proud of them because they're coming so far and releasing such solid tracks that you want to listen to whilst doing 70mph, with the windows down. They have so much talent, they're such a standout for me in terms of bands in the Notts scene, they're so talented, and their tracks sound better than a lot of bigger artists tracks.

This track is making it to the best tracks of this year, I'm telling you that now! 100% one of the best tracks of this year, it's going to be hard for a song to top this one.

It's such a powerful song that I want it tattooed on me. Been a long time since I've said that about a song, so that says something! I think I've got a new favourite song currently because whatever makes you feel safe is just insane.

This track showcases the true talent that Distant Blue have, and if you haven't seen them live before, then this song will make you want to see them live, so when the opportunity arises you should 100% go if you can! I'm so excited to see what comes next because this track is legendary. Go buy it, go stream it, go play it until the world is sick of hearing it, tell your friends about it, play it for all your neighbours as quarantine entertainment, whatever you want to do to promote this song, do it.

Distant Blue are one of Notts best-kept secrets and this song is going to make you love this band, so go and listen to it on repeat for a month! Show Distant Blue the love and appreciation they deserve.

Overall, I have to give it a 6 out of 5 because this song really did exceed my expectations, and it's solid. I'm blown away by this track!

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
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

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…
