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!

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…

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…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. 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! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…
