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!

The 2020 Lemon Awards

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi
