Pink Elephant by Stand Atlantic


So, I will admit that I haven't been the longest fan of Stand Atlantic, I just never really saw the appeal, however, the past 18 months maybe I've gotten into them and I quite like them! I think they're pretty good, so I thought why not bring you my thoughts on Pink Elephant which was released YESTERDAY! 

When the singles were being released, I ended up getting pretty high hopes for this album, so here's to hoping it's an album full of bops that are all as good as the singles! 

The album opens with Like That, and from the first line, I knew I was going to love it! It's an incredible opener to the album, it's loud and it sounds heavier than expected. I love it, I really dig the sound of it, and I think it's a great song. So the albums off to a good start, and I'm just hoping the rest is this good!

We then move into Shh! which was one of the singles, and I loved it when it came out, and I still love it now, and I think it's a great transition from the last track! Bonnie's vocals on this track are and always will be incredible! I will always love this song, so it's a great start to the album! 

Up next is Blurry, and from the intro, I didn't know if I was going to love this song or not, but it's actually a pleasant surprise, I quite like the lyrics to this song! This song is actually pretty decent, I don't know why I didn't expect to like it, but it's just different, but in a good way. I think it's a good song, it isn't my favourite off the album, but it's still good! 

The fourth track is Jurassic Park which was the last single they released, and this has been my joint-favourite of the singles, and I'll put it up there with the top tracks of the album for me, but I could be surprised because there's still 7 more songs to go, even though 3 of them were singles! But, I love this song so much, I think it's incredible! 

Up next is Eviligo, and I really like this one. This song really does do something for me, and I think it's just a well-executed song! I like the lyrics, and I just generally enjoy the song, and so far, we're off to a good start with this album because 5 tracks in and they're all bops!

Wavelength comes on next, which was one of the singles, and this is my other joint-favourite single! I love the sound of this song, I love the whole vibe it gives off, I love the lyrics, and I just generally enjoy the energy this song projects! It's just such a loud and in your face track, how can you not love it?!

Next comes, Drink To Drown, which again, was a single. I wasn't the biggest fan of this song mainly because it was slow, but I still love it, and my opinion of it has changed since it was released. I now think it's a great song, and I love it! I really do think it's a good song, it's a good song to cry to. 

DWYW is next up, and this is possibly my favourite track off the album. It just gives off this insane energy, and I love that it's a fast, upbeat, intense song that follows from Drink to Drown because it keeps my interest! I really do love this song, I think it's insane!

Track 9 is Silk & Satin, and from the intro, this song doesn't do much for me. It isn't necessarily a bad song, it's just not my favourite! I think it's the effect on the track, and I like it, but I don't love it, because it just seems so flat, it doesn't change, it isn't like BOOM here's your breakdown! Even when you think it's about to give you that moment, it doesn't and that for me felt a bit underwhelming. 

Second, to last is Soap, and the lyrics to this song make me feel something. I quite like the sound, and I like that it's an in your face track! I prefer the lyrics to the sound, but I still love the sound, but hearing this is just reaffirming in my mind that my favourite track is DWYW, but I do love this, and I love the lyrics so much! It's a phenomenal song! 

The closing track is the first single they released from the album and that's Hate Me (Sometimes). I liked this song when it was released, but it didn't wow me, but now listening to it, it does wow me! I think it's great. I love this song, I love the vibes it gives off, and I love the depth to the sound, I love Bonnie's vocals, and it does leave a good impression of the album for me! I've said this before, but if an album opens and closing poorly I don't want to entertain it, because they're the tracks that form an opinion on the album (in my opinion).  

My overall thoughts are that this is a great album, there were like one song that didn't hit the mark for me, but that's great! It opened and closed really well, it didn't drop off in the latter half of the album, it was filled with so many incredible songs and so many bops! I think it's a really good album! 
I'd give it a 5 out of 5 lemons, but before we end this post I'm going to do what I did with Neck Deep's album and rank the songs (I know, I've spent too much time watching TikTok). 

1. DWYW
2. Like That

4. Eviligo
5. Wavelength
6. Hate Me (Sometimes)
7. Shh!

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…

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…

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…
