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!

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
