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!

Demon on the Run by Four Thousand Miles

  After what feels like forever (when in reality it's only been 6 months), Four Thousand Miles are back! Because it's been so long, and I know over the past few months there's been a big increase in the traffic to this blog, and there are new readers, let me just give you a brief recap on who 4KM are!   Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band, and their name comes from the fact that between Alex M and Lionel there's 4000 miles!  The band consists of;  Alex F - Vocals and guitar Lionel - Guitar Alex M - Drums  Liam - Bass They now have 3 tracks out, Lonely, Reflections and the brand new track Demon on the Run!  For anybody that cares, Four Thousand Miles are my joint-favourite small band and I would probably sell a few organs for them, also will eventually get a tattoo for them when little miss rona decides to leave us all alone.  Anyway, let's get into the thoughts on the new song!  I was super hyped for this song to drop, and I just knew they wouldn'

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now
