Fuck Them All by The Dangerous Summer

The Dangerous Summer released a new song called Fuck Them All last week, and I was pretty excited for it. They're the band that gave us the hits including The Permanent Rain, Where I Want To Be and Weathered, in reality, their 2009 album Reach For The Sun was just iconic. I loved their last album Mother Nature that they released last year, so the bar was set pretty high for Fuck Them All... but the question is, did it live up to the hype? 

It's a great song! I love it, it's a classic TDS song. It's not as heavy and angsty as I expected it to be. From what was being posted on Instagram, I was expecting something a lot heavier. I was expecting it to pack more of a punch. I wanted more. If they hadn't had hyped it up to the extent that they did, and gave this impression of a really heavy intense song, I'd love it more. But because they set the bar high with the promo they did for it, I'm left feeling slightly underwhelmed. That's not to say, I don't love the song, and I don't appreciate it. I'm simply saying that I expected more. 

There are songs by The Dangerous Summer that I love more, and that I think pack more of a punch, and that I will listen to more than Fuck Them All. I like the song, I think it's a good song, and it's decent. It isn't what I expected, but it doesn't sound dissimilar to their other tracks! 

It isn't my favourite, it's not even a top 10 for me. It's a good song, I can appreciate it, but I think it's more likely that it's a song that'll grow on me rather than loving it instantly. I just expected it to pack more of a punch! I was expecting a bit more depth, I wanted more. 

Again, it's not a bad song, it's just average. It's very mediocre and lacking for me personally, I'll still listen to it, but it won't be a song that I listen to on repeat for weeks! 

Overall, I'll give it a 3.5 out of 5 lemons!

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

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…
