Headlights by Near Mrs

So, Near Mrs' aren't a new band to the blog, they're a band I've mentioned a few times, and I honestly adore them! They were lovely enough to ask me if I'd be up for reviewing their new track, and of course I said yes! Now, this track doesn't drop until Wednesday, but I'm bringing you my thoughts on it today! So, thank you to Near Mrs for asking me to do this post! Let's get into my thoughts on Headlights! 

So straight off the bat, I love the intro! It starts off so strong and it's an engaging track from the get go, which I say this all the time, but that's important for me. I honestly think just from the first 30 seconds this could be Near Mrs' strongest track to date. It's a song that time just seems to disappear when you listen to it. It's honestly such an enjoyable experience listening to Headlights. 

I really do rate this track, it's got an incredible beat to it, it's loud, it's anthemic. It's a work of art. It is honestly, such an incredible track. I like the lyrics to the track as well, and it's got me missing seeing Near Mrs live! Ryan's vocals on this track are something else, honestly, one of the best vocalists in existence! This is truly a masterpiece. Near Mrs really outdid themselves with this track. I am well and truly obsessed with this track! Possibly one of the best releases of 2020! 

Headlights is a song I could listen to for hours and not get bored with. I absolutely adore this song and I think it's insane! You need to listen to it, no doubt about it, you need it in your life. It's really just insane. 

I will say my infamous line of it's got plenty of change and depth within the sound, and it's really interesting to listen to. 

Lyrically, instrumentally, vocally, Headlights is a banger, it is one of the best songs we've heard this year! I can't recommend it enough, so when this drops on Wednesday, I need you all hyping this song up. I need you to show Near Mrs just how well they did on this track. 

I honestly, cannot put it into words just how insane this song is. It's mind-blowing, and it is the best and my favourite Near Mrs track that they've released, and I think it'd be insane to hear it live (you know, when the world has normality and I can be in a venue crying over bands again). 

Now, let's summarise and do the bit that most people don't care about, but the band does. So, I really do rate Headlights and I think it's flawless. This really is a masterpiece and I'm so blown away with the talent Near Mrs have. I'm going to give it a 5 out of 5 lemons for you people that don't accept my alternative rating... alternatively, it's a 6 out of 5 because it is a flawless track. It is one of the best songs to have been released this year. So, it's down to the band if they want to accept 5 out of 5 or 6 out of 5. 

I can't recommend this song enough, so please go and support Near Mrs and hype this song up when it comes out.

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

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…
