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.

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

We’re All On Drugs by Dead Bundy

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about a blog favourite, Dead Bundy! Dead Bundy blessed us with another new track on Friday, and it’s called “We’re All On Drugs”.   This is a classic Dead Bundy track, is and one that packs the punch that most Dead Bundy songs seem to pack. I love the whole vibe and feel of this track, I love that there’s a great mix of different elements in the track to add that something to it, and to enable to the song to be engaging. There’s some subtle tempo changes, but they’re nothing dramatic, but I’m not mad at it. Honestly, this just isn’t a bad track whatsoever.  I honestly think this a pretty solid track, and whilst it does sound similar to some of the previous singles from Dead Bundy, it’s very much it’s own track, there’s some similarities within the track which is what gives it that classic Dead Bundy sound, but there’s enough different elements for you to not feel as if you’ve heard this track before. I really like it tho

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin
