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!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
