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!

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
