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!

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…

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…
