Single Review: Closing Time by Sam Christmas

So, the wonderful Sam Christmas has released his first solo track. For those of you who are unaware as to who exactly Sam Christmas is and why I'm so excited by this, Sam fronted the band Best of Enemies who really were the start of it all for me. So, I was really excited that he was releasing solo music, and his first track is now out for your listening pleasure! 

Closing Time is a folk-pop song, and it's incredible! This is such a beautiful track, and I am so proud of Sam. This is such a lovely song, it's a warm song. It gives the same sort of feeling as drinking a mug of tea on a rainy day. It's beautiful. 

Sam has such a nice voice, and this track really does showcase that. It shows off the talent that he has, so if you could all take this as your time to go and support him, I'd appreciate that! 

Honestly, Closing Time probably seems like the sort of song I wouldn't fall in love with if you were just judging me on being a big emo and not leaving my emo phase, but honestly, absolutely in love with Closing Time. It is one of the best songs I've heard recently (I seem to be saying that about a lot of releases but musicians just keep upping the bar). It's beautiful, it feels so comforting, and honestly, I cannot recommend this song enough. It's a masterpiece, and I had high hopes for the track because it's Sam, but he's exceeded my expectations. It's calming, and I like that. I may be a sucker for a good breakdown but, sometimes you just want something to calm you, and Closing Time gives me that effect. 

Please, go and listen to it. It's incredible, it really is one of the best songs I've heard in a while. Well done Sam. 

You all know what I'm about to give this, but 5 out of 5 lemons of course! It really did exceed all my expectations and I'm obsessed with it. It's going to be on repeat for a while! Although, I think I've already listened to it about 50 times!

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
