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!

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing.
