Week Fifteen: What I'm Listening To (Small Band Addition)...

This post marks the end of Small Band Week 1, however, because bands are lovely and because I actually have some ideas, next week we're doing Small Band Week as well, so week 2 starts tomorrow! If you're unfamiliar with what Small Band Week is and has been, it's pretty much me only talking about small bands, no big bands insight. All my content has been about small bands, 99% of my tweets have also been about small bands (or my blog which has been about small bands all week). So, here we are. The end of week one, I have mainly only listened to small bands all week, there was 2 hours worth of TAA listening this week at max, so here we go. What small bands I've been listening to this week;

What I'm Listening To, New Music Thoughts and What's Happening With The Blog?

Okay, so if you're unaware although, I'm sure most of you are aware, I started university this week. Therefore, I haven't posted as much as I wanted to recently, I've also just had some terrible mental health days and therefore it's made me feel very unmotivated to write. However, Monday posts will still be a thing. They always have been and they always will be. I will be posting my weekly what I'm listening to on a Sunday. I will post content when I'm working with a band on whatever day they desire. 

So, 
Mondays - upload day
Sunday - What I'm Listening To...

I want to bring you once a month ideally some new small artists to check out, I want to keep churning out as much content as I can. I don't want to go back down to once a week, not even twice a week. I want to be putting as much effort into content for you all if I can. I can't say what days besides them two I'll upload content because it's all dependant on ideas and uni workload and …

Blue by Give Me A Reason

So, Give Me A Reason are back with another single from their new EP which drops in 2 weeks! So I thought, why not bring you my thoughts on it like I did with Funny. So here we are! 

I really didn't think that Give Me A Reason could beat Sad but then they released Funny and then I thought they couldn't beat Funny, and now they've released Blue! 
Blue might be my favourite Give Me A Reason song to date! I cannot even put it into words just how much I love this track. 

After about 30 seconds of listening to it I knew I was well and truly in love with this track, but then it hit the chorus and that was it! My brain had exited my skull, and I had turned into the human form of the mind-blown emoji! 
The chorus is just so intense and insane! I can't get enough of it! 

I love the rhythm of this song, and it's so catchy! Give Me A Reason really know how to make catchy songs that you want to listen to so many times. 

Mattia's vocals on this track are beautiful and I love the l…

Flowers In May by Stay Free

So, Stay Free are back with a new track called Flowers In May, and I've spoken about Stay Free quite a few times now, and I really do love this band so I was pretty excited to hear that they were releasing a new song. So, I thought why not bring you my thoughts on the track! So here we are! 

From the intro to Flowers In May I didn't know if I was going to like it or not, but I have found with Just Want You (their single prior to this one) that the intro wasn't my favourite but it did pick up fairly quickly. And, from the snippets, the band had posted on socials I was quite impressed with the song, so it was just that the intro wasn't necessarily my favourite thing ever. But, I wasn't willing to let that deter me, Stay Free are a solid band so I knew if I just trusted them then they'd impress me! We got 10 seconds in and faith was restored, I knew they wouldn't disappoint! 

The chorus on this track is incredible, and that is the real winner. I'd be worried…
