EP Review: Brighter Roads by Seasonal

I'm so excited to be writing this post because Seasonal are one of my favourite bands currently. 

The EP opens with Damage which is such a great opening track. I feel like you can always judge the excellence of an EP or Album with the opening track and Damage hits the spot! It's got an incredible set of lyrics and it kicks the EP off in the right way, it's such a beautiful, loud track and it does leave you wanting more.

The second track is Roads, which is a little more pop-punk and angsty sounding than Damage, but boy does it slap! It's again got some incredible lyrics. It's loud, it's a song that could easily entertain a crowd. It's a song that you want to have a bit of a mosh pit to, and scream and just live your best life at a gig hearing it. 

They don't have a bad song and this new EP is no different. It slaps! So let's talk about these tracks! 
The third track is St Luke's. I think this song is my favourite off the EP, it just kind of hits somewhere that I like songs to hit. It's softer than the previous two tracks, but it's still a nice song, it's still got a decent rhythm to it. It's the sort of song, that if I'm not stable I will cry to but it's one of those songs where the sound doesn't seem sad, but it's the lyrics that hit you and it's like wow okay, going to cry for an hour now thank you. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever known, and I'm going to put it up there with Whispers by Twin Atlantic and Caro Padre by Deaf Havana. St Luke's is the standout song for me, it's the one that makes me want to feel every emotion possible, and it's that reason I'm putting it as my favourite off the EP. 

The EP concludes with Happy, it's again, loud, edgy, the sort of song you want to be hearing live and screaming to, but I think I want to scream this entire EP at this point. But, Happy summarises the entire EP in my opinion "singing sad words to happy songs" that is the Brighter Roads EP summarised by the band themselves. But I love it, it's got emotion, and I do enjoy music to have some meaning no matter what it is, I like it to mean something and for it to be emotional even if that's just a little bit of emotion, and this EP brings so much emotion and it's happy songs with raw lyrics. It's beautiful. It's a work of art. It's a masterpiece. It's one of the best EP's of the year! So go and listen to it! Show the lads in Seasonal some love, show them some support! They truly deserve it and they constantly put out bangers, so go listen to Brighter Roads! 

Overall, it's a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, and just listening to that EP will prove to you why I believe that. So please, love it with all your might! Show them some support, and support all your smaller artists in these difficult times!

Empty Streets by Aim High

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! On today’s instalment of Grace rambles about small bands and their latest releases, we have Aim High with their latest single Empty Streets.   Now, we all know I’m a sucker for a good Aim High release, and they always put out belters of tracks!   This track features Driveways, it has a different vibe to previous tracks, but as we've spoken about before, Aim High tend to change their sound with each track, or nearly every track. Never drastic changes, but noticeable. This track is very unique, there's a lot of different tempo changes. There's a noticeable change between the verses and chorus, but it's a sound I'm here for. The bridge in the track is insane.  This is such a great track it's an impactful track. This is honestly a belter. This is such a surreal track, honestly a belter. This may not be my favourite track from Aim High but it's definitely one worth checking out and showing some love about. This is honestly such a

Pink Alligator by Those Without

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I’m super excited to be talking to you about Pink Alligator by Those Without. Now, Those Without are a band I’ve listened to for a few months and I’ve liked the releases they’ve put out. However, no previous track has got me as hyped as Pink Alligator did.   Knowing what sort of tracks Those Without put out, I was pretty excited for this release, and I had pretty decent expectations.   I want to start off by saying since this track was released, I have been listening to it constantly. Every time I get in the car I'm there putting it on repeat for my drive, everytime I go to listen to music, I'm going to be there listening to this track. I am well and truly obsessed with it. So, when I tell you that this song has blown my mind and really has beaten all expectations I had for it, I mean it.  Pink Alligator has an infectious beat to it, and it's one of the catchiest tracks to be released recently. The tempo changes between the verses a

A Spark To Ignite by Royals

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Royals again. Royals went and dropped a new EP on Friday, and I feel like it was something we all needed in our lives.  I  had pretty decent expectations for this EP judging by the 4 tracks we’ve already heard off the EP. I’ve done a full review of Worldwide Catastrophe and Jaded so I won’t be saying much about them, but I never reviewed Fair-Weather Friend and Out of Reach, so I will speak a little about them but probably not the same amount as Gone.   Anyway, the EP opens with Worldwide Catastrophe. This is an absolute belter of a track. This track is surreal. It packs a punch, it does everything you’d want it to do and more. It’s just insane. I absolutely love this track, I loved it when it first released and I love it all the same now. It’s a great song and one I still highly recommend!   The second track is Fair-Weather Friend. This was one of the first tracks released off this EP, and it is an incredibl
