Part Three: Small Artists You Need To Check Out

Welcome back to another instalment of Small Band Week and today I'm going to give you some artists that I've never featured or ones I've only featured once (recently) and give you some small bands to check out! I've done two of these previously, I've found new bands since, and I do intend on this being a series so that you can just come and find some new bands to support! 

Young Fatigue;

I had the pleasure of working with them last week on an introducing post, they were super lovely to work with and they make incredible music. I cannot recommend them enough. Dislocation is a tune and a half and Pretty Now is just as incredible! Honestly. if you're in the market for some new pop-punk/alt-rock then go and check them out! I fucking love them and they're incredible! 

Beyond The Barricade; 

Now, if you're in the market for a heavier band, a band that will make you want to scream, Beyond The Barricade could be the band for you. Again, such an incredible band! I think they're solid, they've got some incredible songs, and they're honestly just such a great band to listen to! Cannot recommend them enough! If you're more into your metalcore, then they could be right up your street, they're great. Love them lots! 

Light Grey; 

I've spoken about them a lot on Twitter but, only mentioned them on the blog once and they were mentioned in my What I'm Listening To... Light Grey is definitely the lightest band of the three, but still, you're in for a treat if you check them out. They're a pop-punk/pop-rock band and can almost guarantee that you'll end up having one of their songs stuck in your head. 

My Latest Failure; 

Again, I've worked with them on an introducing post, I've mentioned them in other posts, but I haven't featured them a lot! If you're into your punk and your punk-rock, then you may have just found a great new band! My Latest Failure will -hopefully- blow your mind, and the amount of times I've found myself having their songs stuck in my head is something else! Honestly, they're great and they're super lovely! I love and appreciate them a lot! 


Decay are slowly climbing up my rankings, and I was recommended them by Ben (When Nothing Works) and he's always spot on with the band recommendations! Decay are a melodic post-hardcore band. Their album is full of bangers, every single song is a tune and I'm honestly in love with them. They're incredible. Would highly recommend them.

Until You Disappear; 

Another band I've had the pleasure of working with, oh my gosh, this band is just something else honestly! They're super sweet and their songs are incredible, they're flawless, they're how I wish pop-punk still was. Honestly, go and check them out, Drunk Me is my favourite track and Edd has such a great voice especially when it's this genre. Honestly, go check them out! 

I'm going to leave it there for this one, but hopefully, in a few weeks, I'll be back to give you another one of these, an updated one with some more bands on it.

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…
