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!

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…

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!

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…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
