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!

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
