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!

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track!
