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!

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…

If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this!

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

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! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

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…
