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!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
