River Lonely by Benjamin Martin

So, Benjamin Martin is Ben from Don't Forget Rupert, and he's releasing solo music, and spoiler alert, it's great! So, I thought, why not sit down and talk about my thoughts on this track! 

The track is called River Lonely and it's great. Ben has such a beautiful voice, so this track really does showcase that. It's an incredible song, and I really do rate it. 

It's beautiful, it truly is a work of art. It's such an emotional song, and I really do love it. It's a good song to cry to, but it really is an incredible song, and I do think you should go and check it out if you haven't already. 

It really is, such an incredible song, yes it's soft, and it's calm and no, it doesn't have anything that's a big surprise, but it still packs a punch, and it's such a beautiful track, and it's a song to fall in love with. It's a song that you fall in love with because of the emotion, and the beauty of it, rather than loving something on the surface because it'd have a great mosh pit to it. It's the sort of song that so many people will enjoy and love. It's that classic sound, where no matter what music you're into, you're going to at least like it. It's a song that reminds you of the beauty of music and power. The fact, that music, has the ability to make you feel all these different emotions. 

Ben described the song as;
'River Lonely' is about the solitude and confinement that most of us have experienced through this trying time. It's about the desperation and sense of loss on this journey of adjustment in which we have been forced to change the way we live our day to day life. 
Overall, I'll give the song 4 out of 5 lemons. I love it, I think it's beautiful and I do recommend you go anc check it 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…
