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.

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
