I Don't Want To Be Touched by Chris Ang

 
So, a lovely person called Chris Ang emailed me following my post on Hawthorne by Small Talk. and he (being friends with Small Talk.) asked me if I was willing to do a post about his track I Don't Want To Be Touched. This is a very raw track, it's a song that's topic may be triggering for some, but Chris' story is his to tell not mine, and if you go to the video and read the description you'll read his story, and understand the meaning of the song. What you're imaging the song is about (rape) is actually what the song is about. So, if you find that triggering in a track then please don't feel like you have to listen to the song, but if you're willing to give it a go then please do. I've added that in, just in case it is a trigger for someone! 

Anyway, before I get into the review, I just want to make you aware of something that Chris is doing on Monday (24th August). So, Chris is part of a emo karaoke group called Everything Is Alright and they are hosting a Zoom fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds will be benefitting PATH San Diego which is dedicated to helping the homeless in providing them with food, clothing and shelter. The event will be called "When We Were Young Folk" and the karaoke theme is indie/alt music. You can find the Facebook group here!  Again, no obligations but if you wish to check it out you can! 

Moving on to talking music, I honestly think Chris has a lot of talent and potential and for him to write and put out a song like I Don't Want To Be Touched takes a lot of courage. To turn something traumatic into art is incredible, and I have so much respect for people that can do that! 

This song is very raw and emotional, and although it isn't my favourite genre I can appreciate the track, and I do think it's a really good song. I also think it's nice to see a track that talks about this sort of issue, turned into a song that sounds like this, because normally from my own experience with songs about this sort of topic, they don't tend to have the same vibe and fit the same genre that this song does. It's got a mixture of different genres within it. It's a rap song, but it's also got more indie elements within it as well, and it's a combination that works really well. It's a sad song, but it doesn't sound sad which is a lovely thing to come across. 

I think it's a very unique track, and Chris has done it very well. I do think it's a good song. I do think it's a very mood dependant song because of what the song is about, the context could be a big trigger for anybody that's been through that sort of things. However, I do think it's nice that Chris has turned his story into a work of art. It's a good way of expressing what happened. So, if you think you won't be triggered and you're intrigued please do give a listen and check it out! 

I'm going to give it a 4 out of 5 lemons, it's been done really well, it puts something traumatic into something beautiful which is incredible to see. There's plenty of change and depth in all possible aspect in the song, I do think it's a good song. 

Chris does have another song called Love Drug out now, and there is more music to come soon! So make sure if you're interested that you check out his other music, and keep an eye open for when he drops music again!

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
