Single Review: Better Off Before by Holygood

I'm writing this as I do my first listen, and I just want to say that I am crying because this is such a beautiful track and I love Holygood so much! I can't believe Holygood really did that! They did that! I am so incredibly proud of this band. The amount this band has grown, they grew from Light You Up into Holygood and they're really out here making songs to scream and cry to, and I love this band with every ounce of my being! 

So this is the most beautiful song they've ever released even as LYU, nothing tops this track! I am so emotional over this song, and I haven't cried like this to a song since Isley Walton came out and that was over a year ago. Better Off Before is the song that's really tugging at my heartstrings and that's going to make me cry every time I hear it. 

I just want to say, that this is probably going to be my song of the year because this song is something else. Even after half an hour, I am still crying over this song, so that says something about how much this song hits me, and how much I love it. Please inject this song into my veins because this is my new favourite song and I'm so emotional, I just need you all to listen to it right now! No hesitation, go and listen to it right now! 

So Better Off Before, is a song that if you love this band, you're going to get emotional about the video to it, and the lyrics, the lyrics are something else! It's such an emotional song, but it isn't slow and acoustic, it's still loud, and it's still got a decent speed to it, but it's such a moving song, and maybe that's just me, but you might agree with me! I cannot get over how much talent Holygood have and I just want to say for about the 10000th time that, I wholeheartedly love this band, and I am so thankful for their existence and their music. 

Better Off Before, is really that song. It's that song for Holygood, and I cannot even put it into words how much I love this track, the pure talent is out of this world, I don't understand how they aren't one of the biggest bands in the scene because, they are so talented and they really are just such an incredible band. Tohm has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever know, and I will hand on heart say that there is not one member of Holygood that lacks talent, every single member is incredibly talented and I want them all to know I love them and I will always support them. 

So anyway, Better Off Before, is incredible and if you haven't listened to Holygood yet I need you to stop what you're doing and go and give them a lot of love and support, they are one of the best bands out there currently, and they have more talent than a lot of other bands out there, and I will always sing their praises because they're incredible, and they seem like such lovely people! They're a band I'd love to see live, because I can imagine they'd be insane live. 

So please, go and show the lads all the love and support you physically can! They're incredible, they're such an outstanding band, and they deserve all the good things. They deserve to achieve massive things. So please, go and support them! 

Overall, I can't give it any less than a 5 out of 5 and I want to give it a 6 out of 5 so I will, it's a 6 out of 5, but for the people that don't like when scores like that are given it's a 5 out of 5 lemons. I can't rate it any lower, because this really is the song for me. This is the song that's pushed Holygood right to the top of both my favourite smaller bands and to the top of my all time bands. Better Off Before, did that and I once again, am so incredibly proud of Holygood!

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
