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!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
