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!

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…
