Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! 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 other out, which I've said so many times, is a very important thing for me. I love that it's so upbeat, and it's so incredibly catchy. I absolutely love this track and I swear I could listen to it 100000 times and not get bored of it. It's such an engaging song to listen to, and it's one of those songs that you just want to be in a room with loads of other people screaming this song and having the time of your life. It's just such an enjoyable experience listening to it, and the talent this band has is next level! It's just such an incredible song, and it makes you want to smile because it's so upbeat. I just love it, I think it's incredible and it's one of those songs that you can't listen to just once, nah, you have to listen to it on repeat for a good few hours. It's honestly just so incredible. I absolutely love this song, please go and check it out! 

I'd have to give Waking Up In Vegas a solid 5 out of 5 lemons because it's just insane. Honestly, cannot recommend it enough! 

The second track Autumn Fires released was Under Starlight, and from the first few seconds I knew I was going to love this song, and even a couple of months on, whenever I hear them first few seconds I know I'm in for a good time. It has a similar vibe to Waking Up in Vegas, in the fact that it's upbeat, it's catchy, and it's engaging. Both of these tracks have plenty of change and depth within the sound, which if you're familiar round here, you'll know that's essential for me. I just absolutely love this track. I love the lyrics to this song as well, and I think Charlotte's voice suits this sound so much! It again is a song I can easily listen to for a few hours on repeat and not get bored. I just love the sound and vibes of Autumn Fires, they're just such an enjoyable band to listen to and they're so incredibly talented. The sound they have is one of my favourite sounds, the drums, the bass, the guitar, the vocals, everything just works together so well and makes this flawless sound. I am well and truly in love with Under Starlight as well, I just think Autumn Fires are an incredible band that deserve your love and support! 

I again, have to give Under Starlight a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! Under Starlight is equally as good as Waking Up In Vegas and I love this band, and they're just such a flawless band. 

The most recent track they released was Not What I Want. Now, this track has a slightly different sound to it than the last two, but I mean that in the best way possible. It's nice to see that when a band has 3 songs out, the differences between them are easily spotted. This song is a little more on the punk side of pop-punk, but I love that. I like that not all three songs are carbon copies of each other, and the intro to this song is one of the best intro's I've heard in a long time. It's honestly, just such an incredible song to listen to. And then when it kicks in, you know you're in for a good time. Again, I love the lyrics to this song. I just think it's incredible. It's still very much an upbeat song, but it's a little heavier and it's a bit faster and I'm so here for it! The guitar and the drums on this track are honestly impeccable. I absolutely adore this song, and I think it's my favourite of the three. I just love every single thing about this song. 

I'd give Not What I Want another 5 out of 5 lemons. It really does deserve that! 

All three tracks are flawless. I don't think Autumn Fires could release a bad song, I honestly just love them and the vibe of the band. Charlotte, Callum, Jamie, Jay and Ryan are all incredible talented musicians, and they really do deserve your love and support. They're a flawless band, and I'm obsessed with them, I'd put them up in the top 5 (my top 5 has about 15 bands in it) and I just love them so much. 

Autumn Fire's will be releasing a new song called Bones on the 2nd of October, and I'm hoping to bring you a review of it on release day. So make sure you pre-save the song and show them some love on release day!

What I'm Listening To, New Music Thoughts and What's Happening With The Blog?

Okay, so if you're unaware although, I'm sure most of you are aware, I started university this week. Therefore, I haven't posted as much as I wanted to recently, I've also just had some terrible mental health days and therefore it's made me feel very unmotivated to write. However, Monday posts will still be a thing. They always have been and they always will be. I will be posting my weekly what I'm listening to on a Sunday. I will post content when I'm working with a band on whatever day they desire. 

Mondays - upload day
Sunday - What I'm Listening To...

I want to bring you once a month ideally some new small artists to check out, I want to keep churning out as much content as I can. I don't want to go back down to once a week, not even twice a week. I want to be putting as much effort into content for you all if I can. I can't say what days besides them two I'll upload content because it's all dependant on ideas and uni workload and …

Blue by Give Me A Reason

So, Give Me A Reason are back with another single from their new EP which drops in 2 weeks! So I thought, why not bring you my thoughts on it like I did with Funny. So here we are! 

I really didn't think that Give Me A Reason could beat Sad but then they released Funny and then I thought they couldn't beat Funny, and now they've released Blue! 
Blue might be my favourite Give Me A Reason song to date! I cannot even put it into words just how much I love this track. 

After about 30 seconds of listening to it I knew I was well and truly in love with this track, but then it hit the chorus and that was it! My brain had exited my skull, and I had turned into the human form of the mind-blown emoji! 
The chorus is just so intense and insane! I can't get enough of it! 

I love the rhythm of this song, and it's so catchy! Give Me A Reason really know how to make catchy songs that you want to listen to so many times. 

Mattia's vocals on this track are beautiful and I love the l…

Flowers In May by Stay Free

So, Stay Free are back with a new track called Flowers In May, and I've spoken about Stay Free quite a few times now, and I really do love this band so I was pretty excited to hear that they were releasing a new song. So, I thought why not bring you my thoughts on the track! So here we are! 

From the intro to Flowers In May I didn't know if I was going to like it or not, but I have found with Just Want You (their single prior to this one) that the intro wasn't my favourite but it did pick up fairly quickly. And, from the snippets, the band had posted on socials I was quite impressed with the song, so it was just that the intro wasn't necessarily my favourite thing ever. But, I wasn't willing to let that deter me, Stay Free are a solid band so I knew if I just trusted them then they'd impress me! We got 10 seconds in and faith was restored, I knew they wouldn't disappoint! 

The chorus on this track is incredible, and that is the real winner. I'd be worried…
