Afterthought by Better Anyway

So, I have never worked with Better Anyway before, but I have admired them from the sidelines for a few months now. They were a recommendation from someone (I don't remember who) and I think they're really good. They released their latest track on Friday, so I asked the band if it'd be okay if I was to review their track, and they were all for that! So here we are! 

Afterthought is just such an insane song, it's so loud and anthemic. It's in your face, it's got an incredible beat to it, and the lyrics are honestly a big mood! I'm obsessed with this track because it really is that good! I love this track, and of course, it's pop-punk so I automatically love it, but it gives me like Knuckle Puck and Real Friends vibes. I honestly think Better Anyway went above and beyond and really hit the nail on the head with this track. 

I really am in love with it, I just think it's so good, and it's just such an incredibly catchy and the chorus echoing "Just an afterthought to you" is just a big mood really. I do think, this is an incredible song, and I think it's great to hear bands sticking with this 2014 pop-punk sound because I think that's good pop-punk. That's exactly what this song is, it's classic pop-punk. It's loud, and it makes you want to scream and it makes you want to lose your shit, also would be a good song to mosh to let's be realistic. 

Now, for anybody that's read my reviews before you know what I'm going to say. But there are a few things I always say about a song, that puts it up in my ratings! Now, I'm someone that loves a song to change at some point within the track, I don't like it all just being the same and flat, I want something that grips my attention, and this song has change within the sound, and I can really appreciate that! I honestly, think it's such a good song, and you can hear and appreciate every different element of the track. The song does feature Kramer Welker and I think that's a nice little touch on the track as well! 

I love the vocals on this track, they really are incredible and mind-blowing just how great they are! I really do rate this song, and I think it's a masterpiece of a track. 

Now, the bit that most people don't care about, but the band does. 
I'm giving Afterthought a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! Hands down, it deserves that so much! It's honestly a belter of a track! I'm obsessed with it! So, please go check it out and show it some love!

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

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

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
