The Lockdown Sessions by Embxrs

 So I haven't mentioned Embxrs yet, but here I am telling you about Embxrs. So they're an alt rock/pop band from Notts, they consist of Abi who's the lead singer, Ebony who is the bassist, Lou who is the drummer and Lewis who is the guitarist. Lou and Lewis were in Don't Forget Rupert so that's how I came to discover them, and they've released some Lockdown Sessions, so essentially they covered some songs during lockdown, and they've released a cover of Level Of Concern by Twenty One Pilots, a cover of Fall by Neck Deep and a cover of I Think I'm Okay by Machine Gun Kelly, I love all of these tracks, and if you know me you know I Think I'm Okay is one of my all time favourite tracks and it's my 5th most listened to of all time, so I thought why not review them? Spoiler alert, they're amazing. Abi, your voice is beautiful, Ebony, Lewis, Lou, you are all incredibly talented and I'm so proud of you all, I will continue to support you. 

So that's enough rambling from me, here we go! 

Level Of Concern - 

First of all, the cover is incredible. They have done such a great cover of Level of Concern, and from the first time I heard it I knew I was going to love them, and they really didn't disappoint. At the end of the day it's a cover so I can only tell you how much I like their version of the track, and honestly, it's incredible, I want to say I prefer to the original, and I will say that. I love it, it's incredible. They've done so well with this track, and the video is great because of the animals. Abi's cat is adorable, and Lewis' dog is also just as adorable. So I mean if you're looking for a decent cover of Level of Concern and you want to see a cute cat and a cute dog, then please go and listen to it, because would 100% recommend! 

I'll give the cover a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, we all knew this was going to happen. I love it! Go and show them some love! 

I Think I'm Okay - 

So let's talk about this because I have so much love for the original so the question is does it come anywhere close to it? The answer is yes. I love MGK, and I love this song, so it takes a lot for me to love a cover of a song that I love this much, but it's a great cover. Abi has such a beautiful voice, honestly could listen to her sing anything at this point. It's an amazing cover, and I love it. It's beautiful, it's well done, it sounds great, it doesn't sound dissimilar to the original. It's just an overall enjoyable cover and I love it. It's great, I mean I love the song a lot so I have to love it, but it's an amazing cover, and it proves that Embxrs have so much talent! I would 100% recommend checking this out! 

Overall, I'll give it another 5 out of 5 lemons, because it's just so beautiful and so good! 

Fall - 

Let me just start off by saying how beautiful this is, I feel blessed after listening to this. This is honestly, such an incredible cover. Is it bad that I might actually prefer the cover to the original? Like the original is good, but this cover is insane!  The talent in this band, honestly! How do they have so much talent? I feel like I'm going to end up repeating everything I've said before, but honestly, they're such a talented band, like these covers are insanely good! Would 100% recommend you go and check them out, because, I'm honestly speechless at the talented in this band. Honestly, love them so much going off these 3 covers, maybe they're jumping into my top 5 small bands... 

Honestly, I cannot give Fall any less than 5 out of 5 lemons, and if you don't understand why then watch the covers and understand why. You can't deny that they're insanely talented and deserve so much love and appreciation, so please, go and check them out!

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…

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

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it.
