Home Wrecked by Home Wrecked


They're back, their final EP is here. I'm emotional, four of these songs have been out (3 as singles, 1 as just an early release on YouTube) and I'm not ready for this. 

Goodbye Home Wrecked, I'm going to miss you so much. Thank you for making music and being incredible. 

White Lightning is the first track and we all know that I loved it when I did my review of it, I rated it so highly, I still rate it highly, it was mentioned in the Quarantine Awards and everything. White Lightning is just such an incredible, anthemic track, and I love that the EP kicks off with it. 

Then we move onto What You Want, and I did also review this when it came out, and I loved it then and I love it even more now. It's just such a loud, angsty, in your face track and I honestly love it so much. I think it's insane and even 5 months later I still think it's incredible. I don't think I'll ever stop loving this song. 

The third track is Far from Home and this was the song they released early on YouTube, and it still makes me cry and it's truly beautiful. It's so loud and in your face and it truly is an anthem and I'm obsessed with it, it could be my favourite track on the EP. I fucking love it, and it makes me cry so much. I've cried over this song so many times, and I feel like it's always going to be the song that makes me cry. I mean Joe really sang that chorus and didn't expect me to cry like a baby. I honestly, fucking love this song so much. It's just so insane and I can't hype it up enough. It's home to one of my favourite lines off the EP, that being "If there's one final fuck you can give..." and just the way that line blends seamlessly into the chorus. I really am obsessed with this track! 

Second to last is, Nowhere Fast, the only song that wasn't released prior. I didn't know what to expect from the intro, but then Joe's vocals just came out of nowhere and blew me away. Joe's vocals on this track is what every pop-punk vocalist wishes theirs could be like. Some of the lines to this song are just insane! Lyrically, this is my favourite song. Altogether, it's joint with Far from Home. I really can't process how insane this song is. I'm honestly the human life form of the mind-blown emoji right now. I really am just so blown away that I can't even find the words to explain how insane this song is. This is such a solid pop-punk song. This is the way I wished pop-punk still was, this is hands down one of the best pop-punk songs in existence. I honestly can't process just how well Home Wrecked have done on this track! Honestly, well fucking done lads! 

The last track was the last single they released, These Days. I did also do a full review of this song, so like I did with White Lightning and What You Want I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I love These Days, I've loved it for a month, and it's such an incredible song, and it really is perfect to end the EP. It's the perfect way to end the band. These Days is the final Home Wrecked song. That really makes me emotional. It's a great song though! 

So let's summarise. This EP is insane. I had high expectations from the singles, but I thought maybe Nowhere Fast would be a dud of a song since the four that were released were so good! But that's not true, there are no bad tracks. All 5 tracks are way above a 5 out of 5. They're like a 10 out of 5. The entire EP is just incredible. I'm so blown away with it. Honestly, well done Home Wrecked. I'll miss you so much, but thank you for giving us this final EP. I have so much love and admiration for you lot! Thank you for making some insanely good music, and making the music that the bigger bands in the scene stopped making. Thank you for everything you've released. 

Now, the important bit... 5 out of 5 lemons. If you're willing to accept a 6 out of 5 I'm willing to say it's a 6 out of 5, but formally it's a 5 out of 5 and it's one of the best EP's I've ever heard. Well done, and thank you!

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
