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!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
