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!

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
