Bands I Fell Out Of Love With... Can I Fall Back In Love With Them?

 Now, I know this is a similar post to one I did before, but I want to do this one just because I've loved so many bands over the years, and part of the journey of loving bands is falling out of love with them, forgetting they exist and not reaching for them anymore for no reason other than you found other bands! So, I thought why not tell you some bands I've fallen out of love with and see if I can respark my love for them! 

The Amity Affliction - 

I used to like TAA, I thought they were an incredible band and at one point they were the heaviest band I'd listen to. But, the past few years I've forgotten about them, I haven't reached for them because for a while I went off heavier music and would only listen to generic pop-punk bands and alt rock, but I had a bit of a breakdown and thought "Fuck it, let's have a listen to TAA and see if this helps", it really did. I can remember exactly why I loved them, and I love them even more now that I did before. I think they're an incredible band, and I think they're good at what they do! I've well and truly fallen back in love with them after listening to This Could Be Heartbreak again, I got so much love for this band! 

As It Is - 

I hate saying this, I really do because I've loved As It Is since like 2012/2013, since Two Tracks was a thing! Before Blenheim Palace before This Mind of Mine, I loved them, and I still like their music, but I don't reach for it anymore and that's such a sad realisation. Never Happy, Ever After is still incredible along with okay. but The Great Depression wasn't really for me, I didn't like the singles and therefore stopped paying attention and fell out of love with them. However, listening to Never Happy, Ever After in full has resparked my love for them. They really are just that good, they're insane. Fucking love 'em! 

Every Avenue - 

I was a massive Every Avenue fan, I loved them for years, and when they came off hiatus I was so happy! However, my love for them just fizzled out, the flame went out and I do still love listening to them, but I don't reach for them anymore. I still think they're a great band but to say they were one of my favourite bands, it's really sad that I don't love them as much as I once did. I still think they're incredible and listening to Picture Perfect has me loving them again, but I think part of the problem is that there's no new music, it's all old songs that I know off by heart. 

Set It Off - 

I spoke about this in a post before, but I just fell out of love with them. It's a similar situation to that of As It Is, and I wished I didn't fall out of love with them because Duality and Upside Down are the shit! Even Cinematics and Calm Before the Storm are great, just I stopped paying attention. I grew up and left a lot of bands I listened to during the ages of 13-17 behind because they reminded me of a time I wished to forget, but looking back now, it's the memories that are bad not the songs. I really love Upside Down and Duality and I might eventually give the newer stuff a go, but listening to Duality is reminding me how good they are. Maybe they'll be a band that I can listen to a bit more often and maybe slowly work them back into rotation!

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
