I Can't Say This To Your Face by Better Anyway

So, yesterday Better Anyway released a new track called I Can't Say This To Your Face, and I thought so highly of Afterthought when they released that a few weeks ago, that I'd bring you my thoughts on I Can't Say This To Your Face. 

I really thought that Better Anyway couldn't top Afterthought and yet here we are, we're back with another incredible track! I'm really starting to think that Better Anyway couldn't release a bad song even if they tried to, they really are just that good of a band! 

The track starts off pretty slow and mellow, it isn't fast, it isn't upbeat but it's still just as beautiful! It's one of those songs that for a 2/3 of the track it's slow, it's raw whilst still being a full band performance, however, you reach 2:15 and suddenly your mind is blown. You kind of expect it to be the case that the song picks up and suddenly you're flatlining over the vocals and you just want to scream because this is it, this is the bit where it's intense, it's loud, it's in your face. If it was humanly possible for my brain to exit my skull, I'm sure it would have. That is just how good I Can't Say This To Your Face is. 

You kind of expect that build up, you expect it, but you also don't expect it to happen when it does. Honestly, I love that because we all know I love a song to have depth and change within it but, this just takes it to a whole other level. This is where a slow beautiful track, becomes an insanely good, beautiful track. I think hearing it for the first time actually made me want to cry because it really is just that beautiful. When I say I want change and depth in a song, this is what I want. Better Anyway have really my mind with this track. I well and truly love it! 

The vocals, the bass, the guitar, the drums on this track. Everything about this track is incredible! I am well and truly in love with I Can't Say This To Your Face. Like imagine a song being that good... honestly I'm blown away with this track. I really do love Better Anyway and all you have to do to understand why is listen to this track and Afterthought and you'll see why I have so much faith in this band and what they're doing. 

I also want to add, that I do really like the lyrics to this song because some lines really are hitting me where it hurts. I really am emotional over this track. Let me just cry over it for two weeks yeah? Honestly, what a song! 

Overall, I feel like you can already guess what rating I'm giving this track. Better Anyway are getting a 5 out of 5 lemons for I Can't Say This To Your Face. I don't even need to justify it, because it's just that good of a track. I am well and truly in love with this song and I would really recommend you going and checking it out!

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

We’re All On Drugs by Dead Bundy

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about a blog favourite, Dead Bundy! Dead Bundy blessed us with another new track on Friday, and it’s called “We’re All On Drugs”.   This is a classic Dead Bundy track, is and one that packs the punch that most Dead Bundy songs seem to pack. I love the whole vibe and feel of this track, I love that there’s a great mix of different elements in the track to add that something to it, and to enable to the song to be engaging. There’s some subtle tempo changes, but they’re nothing dramatic, but I’m not mad at it. Honestly, this just isn’t a bad track whatsoever.  I honestly think this a pretty solid track, and whilst it does sound similar to some of the previous singles from Dead Bundy, it’s very much it’s own track, there’s some similarities within the track which is what gives it that classic Dead Bundy sound, but there’s enough different elements for you to not feel as if you’ve heard this track before. I really like it tho

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin
