Funny by Give Me A Reason

I've never done a review of a Give Me A Reason track before, but I've been following them for a good few months, and I was obsessed with their last track Sad. So let's talk about their new release Funny! 

Funny is very much a stereotypical modern pop-punk song. 

It's a super infectious track, that's exciting to listen to. It's a sound that a lot of bands seem to be turning towards, but I don't think many bands pull off this sound and vibe like Give Me A Reason do. 

You know I have to talk about this, but yes, Funny has some change and depth within the sound and it's got some decent lyrics, which as you know, automatically gives it a minimum of 3 out of 5, but this song is great. It's incredible in fact, it's one of my favourite releases recently. 

It's got such a good beat to it, and all day it's been stuck in my head. I'm well and truly obsessed with it. It really does hit the spot, and I think it's just insane. I love that whilst sounding like a lighter pop-punk track, it also has such a great vibe to it, and I love that you can actually hear and appreciate every member. It isn't like one element is overpowering, it's so well balanced! I'm honestly obsessed! 

I can't even put it into words just how great this track is! I can't get over how good this track is, it's one of those songs that's come out at the perfect time as well! Like the lyrics really are hitting home currently, and I cannot recommend Give Me A Reason enough! 

Funny is just a super relateable, super catchy, mind-blowing track! Mattia has such a beautiful voice, and I really am just blown away by the talent this band has! If you haven't heard of Give Me A Reason before then go and check them out! And if you have but you haven't heard Funny yet, then what are you waiting for? Go do it! 

I feel like Funny is going to end up being my most listened to song currently, and it's one of those tracks where I don't think the novelty will wear off, I think it's always going to slap like the rest of their discography does! 

Now the bit most people don't care about, but the band themselves tends to care about... my rating! 

If you've heard this song, it won't surprise you that I'm giving it a 5 out of 5 lemons! I will also give it a 5 out of 5 lemons, but some of you don't accept that as a real rating, so formally 5 out of 5 lemons! Possibly a strong contender for one of the best tracks of the year! I'm just so blown away by this track and I'm well and truly in love with it.  Please go check it out and show Give Me A Reason some love, they really do deserve it!

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

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

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
