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!

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…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
