Introducing: My Latest Failure



Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 

My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

  • Chris Underhill - Guitar and Vocals
  • Andy Hale - Bass and Vocals
  • Jamie Boyle - Drums

Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you audible pleasure and I'm going to take some time to tell you my thoughts on them. I don't want to ramble on for an hour, but I make no promises. 

So let's start from the beginning. The first release they put out was their EP, which honestly slaps! It is possibly the shortest EP I've ever known, but it packs a punch! 

Lies is the opening track, and it's just such an incredible track. It's loud and in your face, it's engaging, it's interesting to listen to (trying not to say my usual line there). The vocals on this track are also great! I honestly just think this is such an insane track! I would 100% recommend it to you! 

We then move onto Story of The Year which is a mindblowing track, because it is just that loud and insane. Possibly my favourite off of the EP. Very short and sweet, but definitely packs a punch! 

Then we have Our Latest Failures and the transition between this track and the previous one is seamless! It's the shortest track on the EP but it's just so great. I really like it. I think it's an incredible track. 

The last track on the EP is Leech, which again, is insane. It's a pretty strong track, and I say this a lot, but for me, it's important for any release to start and end well. It's a masterpiece. I really do rate it, I love it. I think it's a great song to give you energy and to wake you up on a Monday morning. 

I rate the entire EP, I think it's great. A solid 4.5 out of 5 lemons! 

Now, let's talk about their second release, Disappointment, which I mean you have to hope that's about my life rather than the song! 

I love the beat to the song, and I just love the entire vibe the song gives off. I think it's great. It's really loud and in your face, but it's not too extreme. I just really like the song and the vibes it gives off, and the way it makes you want to engage with the song. It's just a solid track really. 

Again, another 4.5 out of 5 lemons. 

Moving onto the latest release Selfish! I love this track, I think it's great. It's my favourite track they've released. I really do just think it's incredible. I think Selfish is incredibly catchy, I like that it's very loud and in your face. Honestly, would recommend it to you so much, and it's probably a really good place to start at when listening to My Latest Failure for the first time. 

I'd give selfish a 5 out of 5 lemons. 

So, if you're on the hunt for a new band and are into hardcore and punk, then go and check out My Latest Failure, they're a really good band!

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
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 othe…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…
