Introducing: Young Fatigue

Welcome to my third introducing post of the week! Today I'm introducing you to a band that hails from London although they're scattered across the south-east. 

Young Fatigue is an alt-rock/punk band that consists of; 

Ash Dixon - Vocals and Guitar
Charlie Roe - Drums
Michael Enger - Bass and Backing Vocals

This again, was a lovely band I found through twitter and I am so thankful they sent me a link to Dislocation because Young Fatigue was the band I didn't know I needed until I heard them. 

So, if you know how things work around here then you know that I'm going to tell you my thoughts on the earliest single and then the latest. 

Young Fatigue currently have two singles out, their debut single which is Dislocation and then the follow up single which is Pretty Now, which actually only came out a few weeks ago! 

Both tracks were recorded at Decimal Studios with Chris Coulter and Young Fatigue are planning to record a full EP with Chris towards the end of the year, which does sound pretty exciting! 

So, let's start off with Dislocation! 

First thing I'm going to say is that Dislocation is a certified banger! From the first few seconds, I didn't know if I was going to like it or not when I first heard it, however, I kept going and I fell in love with it. Ash's vocals are something else on this track, they really are and the fact you can hear Charlie and Michael is great, as I love being able to hear and appreciate every member! So straight off the bat first 30 seconds we've got the change and depth within the sound that I always long for, so you know we're off to a good start and that Dislocation has already peaked my interest! Dislocation is an insanely catchy track that I've found myself humming at random times of the day because it's been stuck in my head that much! It's an insane track that shows just how talented Young Fatigue are! This track alone gives you a good enough reason to love this band, I honestly can't recommend Dislocation enough! It's really just such a great song! 
    I've give Dislocation a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! It really does deserve that because it's such a solid track! 

We then move onto Pretty Now which was released just under a month ago, and again, is a solid track! 

Like Dislocation the intro had me wondering if this track was going to be less desirable for my personal tastes, however, it proved me wrong yet again. And I love that about Young Fatigue, the songs start off sounding completely different to what the majority song sounds like. As I've said time and time again, for me it's desirable for a song to have change within the sound, so because Young Fatigue literally nail that within the first 30 seconds of a song, I have so much love and appreciation for them! I wouldn't say this is as catchy as Dislocation, but it's just as strong of a track. The instrumentals in the track are insane! The pure talent in the band! It's so loud and anthemic that it's hard to not fall in love with it. It's got some decent lyrics to accompany the incredible sound, and it really does prove that Young Fatigue is a band that are worthy of your attention. 
    I again would give Pretty Now a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! Cannot fault the track. I love it! 

So, my final thoughts on Young Fatigue is that they are 100% worth your attention. They're incredible, they're so insanely talented, and they have so much potential. So, please stop sleeping on this band and go and show them some love and support. Add their songs to your playlists, get your friends to listen to them. Check them out and see why I think they're such an incredible band! I'm really excited to see what they come out with next, I've got pretty high expectations after hearing Dislocation and Pretty Now. Honestly, go check them out right now!

What I'm Listening To, New Music Thoughts and What's Happening With The Blog?

Okay, so if you're unaware although, I'm sure most of you are aware, I started university this week. Therefore, I haven't posted as much as I wanted to recently, I've also just had some terrible mental health days and therefore it's made me feel very unmotivated to write. However, Monday posts will still be a thing. They always have been and they always will be. I will be posting my weekly what I'm listening to on a Sunday. I will post content when I'm working with a band on whatever day they desire. 

Mondays - upload day
Sunday - What I'm Listening To...

I want to bring you once a month ideally some new small artists to check out, I want to keep churning out as much content as I can. I don't want to go back down to once a week, not even twice a week. I want to be putting as much effort into content for you all if I can. I can't say what days besides them two I'll upload content because it's all dependant on ideas and uni workload and …

Blue by Give Me A Reason

So, Give Me A Reason are back with another single from their new EP which drops in 2 weeks! So I thought, why not bring you my thoughts on it like I did with Funny. So here we are! 

I really didn't think that Give Me A Reason could beat Sad but then they released Funny and then I thought they couldn't beat Funny, and now they've released Blue! 
Blue might be my favourite Give Me A Reason song to date! I cannot even put it into words just how much I love this track. 

After about 30 seconds of listening to it I knew I was well and truly in love with this track, but then it hit the chorus and that was it! My brain had exited my skull, and I had turned into the human form of the mind-blown emoji! 
The chorus is just so intense and insane! I can't get enough of it! 

I love the rhythm of this song, and it's so catchy! Give Me A Reason really know how to make catchy songs that you want to listen to so many times. 

Mattia's vocals on this track are beautiful and I love the l…

Flowers In May by Stay Free

So, Stay Free are back with a new track called Flowers In May, and I've spoken about Stay Free quite a few times now, and I really do love this band so I was pretty excited to hear that they were releasing a new song. So, I thought why not bring you my thoughts on the track! So here we are! 

From the intro to Flowers In May I didn't know if I was going to like it or not, but I have found with Just Want You (their single prior to this one) that the intro wasn't my favourite but it did pick up fairly quickly. And, from the snippets, the band had posted on socials I was quite impressed with the song, so it was just that the intro wasn't necessarily my favourite thing ever. But, I wasn't willing to let that deter me, Stay Free are a solid band so I knew if I just trusted them then they'd impress me! We got 10 seconds in and faith was restored, I knew they wouldn't disappoint! 

The chorus on this track is incredible, and that is the real winner. I'd be worried…
