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!

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Killing Giants by Holygood

  Holygood are back! After what seems like forever, but in reality, hasn't actually been that long Holygood are back and they've released their 4th track of the year. This time, they're back with a new vibe and sound whilst still sounding very much like classic Holygood.  Now, Holygood's last release was Better Off Before which I still listen to a lot! I think it's the best song they've released, and it really is just an incredible track. However, because Better Off Before was as good as it was, I felt very reluctant about new music, because like I've said in posts on other bands, when the previous release is so incredible, how can a band really top that. That's my main thought when going into this track, is it as good as Better Off Before? Can they really top that release?  The intro had me a little confused, and very sceptical of what was about to happen. It's definitely got a lot of rap elements/influences within it, but that's not necessarily
