Smile by Good Hustles

So, Good Hustles have a new song called Smile! I was very lucky to be able to hear this before release because if you're unaware Harvey Duddles is one of my best friends and therefore, I got to hear this early! However, that will not influence my opinion, because if it's terrible (it's not) I'll tell you it's terrible. If it's good (it is) I'll tell you it's good! 

Okay, so going into Smile I didn't really know what to expect. I'd heard a few of their songs previously as Harvey asked me for my opinion on them a few months back, and I thought they were alright. I quite liked them, I thought they had a decent vibe about them, so I knew when I saw that it was Good Hustles that it was going to be a decent track! Didn't expect it to be as good as it is though! 

I'm honestly, mind blown at how incredible Smile is! Smile is such an anthemic track! It's an absolute belter. Lyrically it's incredible, instrumentally it's incredible! Morton's vocals on this track are something else, honestly, I'm the human form of the mind-blown emoji after hearing this track! 

There aren't enough words in the English language to explain just how good this is! It's got such a good beat to it, and it's so catchy! A nice touch on this track is the fact that it features Conversing with Oceans in the breakdown although, don't go thinking this is a heavy track because it isn't. It's such a great track though! I'm obsessed with this track, and it's a very strong contender for a Lemon Award, possibly the strongest contender we've had, or at least on the same level as the other strong contender! 

Now, I can't do a review without saying this can I? You know what's coming... the song has a lot of change and depth within the sound with is incredible! It's not flat, it's got a good kick to it. I just think it's a great track! I really do rate it! 

Now, the important bit... my verdict. Being completely honest, Smile is one the best songs to come out this year. It's just incredible, and it really does hit the spot. So, this comes as no surprise, Smile gets 5 out of 5 lemons! Hands down, I'll give them 6 out of 5 lemons if you're willing to accept that, but some of you don't accept that so for those lot, 5 out of 5. The band can pick which one they run with! So, go stream the hell out of it! Buy the song, add the song to all your playlists as it's on the Small Band Appreciation playlist! Go check it out, and show Good Hustles some love!

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
