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!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
