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.

The 2020 Lemon Awards

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi

Prospect Music Award 2021: The Final...

So, I didn't actually end up doing the press for the second round of the awards, because I dislocated my shoulder about 5 times in 48 hours.
