EP Review: Fatherson Acoustic

Okay, so Fatherson put out their acoustic EP a few weeks back and I felt like I had to say some thoughts on it. Because, these aren't new songs and they're just acoustics I can't judge them too heavily because it's a song I know and love, but nevertheless, I am still here to give you my thoughts on them! 

The EP is 5 tracks long and it consists of 
1. James
2. Charm School
3. Reflection
4. Making Waves
5. Just Past The Point Of Breaking 

I have actually previously said my thoughts on a couple of these songs, but we're still going to talk about it all today! 

The EP opens with James, and this is such a beautiful song as it is, but when done acoustically it's even more beautiful and it really does show just how talented Fatherson are, and just how incredible Ross' voice is! It becomes so much more raw and heartfelt. It becomes even more emotional than it once was. Ross' voice on this track is insane! Honestly, incredible! I love it! I am so completely in awe at this track! 

The second track is Charm School, which on it's own is an incredible song! It's an incredible song, but acoustically it's a whole other level. I did review Charm School and Reflections previously and they're both very beautiful songs, and their placement on the EP is great. I love it, but because, I'm previously said my thoughts on them I don't want to be repeating myself! But I do like them, and I think they're beautiful.

The fourth track is Making Waves, which was one of my favourite tracks off of Sum Of All Your Parts, so to hear this acoustic version is something else! This is possibly my favourite off of the EP, and it's honestly, incredibly beautiful to the point where it gives me goosebumps because it's just that good! I'm in love with it, and I'm so thankful for this song's existence. I could cry over this, because of how good it is. 

The EP concludes with my favourite Fatherson track, Just Past The Point Of Breaking, and this is just next level for me. I don't prefer it over Making Waves, which is shocking because it's my favourite song, but I prefer Making Waves. But honestly, to quote Jake Peralta "Chills, literal chills". That sums up perfectly how I feel about this song because it really is just that good. 

Overall, I'll give the EP a 4 out of 5 lemons. It's acoustic, so there isn't much more I can say, but it's beautiful! I really do rate the EP a lot!

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
