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!

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
