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!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this!

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…
