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!

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
