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 if I didn't like the chorus to a track, as normally, I can always like the chorus of the tracks and that does tend to be the strongest part of a song, and it's an insane chorus on this track. It's pretty powerful, and it packs a punch. 

The more I listen to the song, the more I like it, and I love the rhythm of this track, and it does have change and depth within the sound. I can really get behind it, and I do like it a lot, I think it's got some nice lyrics, and it's really catchy like the rest of Stay Free's releases. I do like this, I don't know if I prefer it to Just Want You, but I do like it! 

The more I listen to it, the more it grows on me, and I can certainly see myself reaching for this song a fair bit! It isn't my favourite Stay Free release, but I still like it. I would still recommend it, and I still think you should go and check it out! 

Overall, I'd give the track a 4 out of 5 lemons. It's a good song, not my favourite, but I'm going to listen to it a lot more and see if in the next week or so if my opinion changes, and I'll update you in a 'My Thoughts On Songs That Came Out Recently...' post. I would 100% recommend Stay Free though, and I can see so many people loving this song. It's super powerful and catchy, it's really enjoyable to listen to and I'm still going to be listening to it a lot!

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. 

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…
