Band Review - Death of Youth

So, I'm going to talk to you about another band today, and we're going to dive into their songs. Today's band is Death of Youth. This band is fronted by one of my Twitter friends and he said to do a review, and because it was Rob, I thought, yeah, why not. So here we are, we're going to talk about Death of Youth, who they are, what they do and have a listen to some of their songs. 

Death of Youth is based in South East London, and they're a melodic hardcore/emo band. 

For Fans Of - Touché Amoré, Departures, Casey, Counterparts, Defeater, State Faults

They have two EP's out for your listening pleasure, and they're pretty good! Now, I think we all know that yes, I do like hardcore, it's in my top 5 genres but it's not my number one, but if I like Death of Youth then it's very possible that you can like them too! 

I prefer the second EP which actually only came out a few months ago (April)  and it's honestly a really good EP, I've enjoyed it since I first heard it and I do think that you should check it out if you're up from some melodic hardcore, and it's actually quite an enjoyable listening experience. I did actually include Death of Youth at the end of one of the posts in the Small Band Struggles series as an artist you should check out, and they've always been a band I've wanted to share with you all, I just never got round to it. 

So, to do this in order the first EP is called Between Chapters. I love the sound on this EP, I think it's a beautiful work of art. And Echoes starts the EP so incredibly well, and it really is insane how good it is! It has a listening time of just over 13 minutes, and it's home to 4 tracks! My top picks off the EP Silhouette and Echoes. 

I think it's got some incredible energy behind it, and it sounds amazing! So, I'm going to rate it a 4 out of 5 lemons. 

The second EP is titled Suburban Dystopia, it's 5 tracks long. A listening time of just under 12 minutes, it's honestly 12 minutes of bliss. The top picks from this EP would be Faded Nostalgia and Cover Feature, although the entire EP is great and the fact that track 5 is titled "You're a Crook, Captain Hook" just does something for me! 

I love this EP, I love the energy, I love the sound, I just think it's great, and I'd probably give it a 4 out of 5 lemons again! 

So if you combine both the EP's you have a listening time of just over 25 minutes, and it's 25 minutes worth spending listening to them! I do highly recommend them, and I think you should 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

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

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
