Album Review: Art/Facts by Prime (UK Band)

So, I've followed this band on Instagram for a while now, but this was the first interaction I'd had with them, and we all know that if a local band approaches me I'm more than likely going to say yes and do a post on them! 

So like with most bands, I'm going to tell you a little bit about the band and then we'll dive into my thoughts on Art/Facts. 

So Prime (UK Band) was a band from the East Midlands, Nusic described them as "One of the best live bands" and that's a pretty flattering title to give a band, 

The band consisted of 
Lee Heir: Vocals
Chris D Bramley: Guitar and vocals

For Fans of: Oasis, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, David Bowie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers

So sadly, Prime announced they would be ending their journey as a band, but that doesn't mean you can't still support them and show them some love! Whilst their music is out there you're very capable of being able to do that! So please do! Anyway, into my thoughts on Art/Facts.

So the album opens with In Summer which is a great opening track, it's got a good rhythm and it's a happy sounding track, the same can be said about the second track Bye Bye, they're good songs, they're not my favourite tracks, but they're good, and the placement on the album is great! We then move onto the third track titled To Be or Not To Be, which again, sounds good, it's got a decent rhythm, it sounds quite funky. This track feels like it packs a bit more than the previous tracks, and overall it's a good song. The next track is I.O.U, this is more comparable to the first two tracks, and the overall impression at this point is that they sound 70s inspired, that's the only way I can think to describe the tracks. No Sign of Life is again comparable to the other tracks, and that's not a bad thing because they all flow nicely from one to another. Up next is Free N' Easy, which again, doesn't sound dissimilar to the others, but I think to this point it's one of my favourite tracks on the LP, it's softer, which is quite complimenting. Like The Weather comes on next, and this to me is the standout track. It's got more of a beat to it, it's slightly louder, it's more rock vibes rather than indie. Flatline follows on in the footsteps of the previous track, again it has more of a rock sound rather than indie, which I do thoroughly enjoy, and it's that which makes these tracks stand out to me a bit more. Take Me To Your Crew, again, is similar to the previous track and again, it isn't a bad thing. It's quite a refreshing sound, it's more like 70s rock, and it's great, this does sound like the classic bands like The Clash and The Stones. Now, on the approach to the end of the album we reach White Boys, White Noise. It reminds me of a similar sound to Fight For Your Right (To Party) if it was slightly softer, which again, it's nice and refreshing. Second, to last is actual a remix of Bye Bye, obviously, being a remix it sounds very much like a more modern, softer variation of EDM. The last track is Teen TV, but a live version of it. At this point, it becomes apparent as to why Nusic ranked them as highly as they did, clear vocals, a good beat, and a pleasant listening experience. 

Overall, I'm going to give the LP a 3.5 out of 5 lemons, it isn't my favourite LP, but it isn't my favourite genre, however, I can see a lot of people really liking it, so if you're looking to listen to some new music then go and check them out, and appreciate the music for what it is!

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
