idk why i try by Misplaced

So, I have never featured Misplaced on the blog before. I've mentioned them in a few What I'm Listening To... posts, but I've never done a feature on them. I loved their last release fuck that, i'm alright. So, I thought why not bring you my thoughts on their new track idk why i try. 

If you happen to be unfamiliar with who Misplaced are, they're a Scottish pop-punk band and they're absolutely insane, but I seem to say that about most Scottish musicians! Anyway, they're insanely good and I'd highly recommend going and checking them out! They deserve so much more love and support than they get! 

Having heard fuck that, i'm alright I had pretty high hopes for idk why i try, and I can safely say they didn't disappoint. They exceeded every expectation I had, and I think they're well and truly becoming one of my favourite smaller bands. This song is helping that, and I don't get why Misplaced aren't a massive band with the bangers they release. They deserve to be like Neck Deep and State Champ's sized, and their pop-punk is actually pop-punk. It's very much like OLD Neck Deep, and I love it. 

From the intro, I knew I was going to love this track, and the energy in this song is incredible! The vocals are also beautiful! Honestly, some of the nicest vocals I've heard in a long time! I love that nobody is drowning the other out, and I love how loud it is, it's a song that you wouldn't listen to quietly, it's a song that you play at full blast and scream your lungs out to it. And I fucking love that! 

Of course, with it being a proper pop-punk track there's some great change and depth within the sound, and it's so nice and refreshing to listen to. It reminds me of the likes of Home Wrecked, who were a solid band that made decent pop-punk music that you liked listening to. And that's exactly what Misplaced do for me, they're a band I love listening to, that I find so refreshing to listen to, and that all their tracks are solid. They're enjoyable and engaging to listen to, and I fucking love it. 

This song, just proves how incredible they are, and just how much love and support they deserve. I love the lyrics to this song, some lines really hit home, and the chorus is really catchy. It's an anthem. That's what this song is, without a doubt it's an anthem. It's loud, it's a song you want to be in a crowd losing your shit to, it's one of those song you want to be on a road trip listening to it on full blast with the windows down. That's what this song is. It's perfection. It really is a masterpiece. I'm obsessed with it, and I can see myself listen to this song so much! 

I am so excited to see what Misplaced release next, because idk why i try and fuck that, i'm alright were absolutely solid tracks! I cannot recommend this song, and this band enough! I swear, if you've never checked them out before, go and do it. If you love pop-punk you're probably going to love them! 

idk why i try is one of my favourite songs that's been released currently, and I cannot recommend it enough. I fucking love it, and this band is just insane. You need this song in your life, so please, what are you waiting for. Go and check it out! 

Now, it's that bit that nobody ever really cares about... aka my rating. 
    I've got to give idk why i try a solid 5 out of 5 lemons. It truly deserves that, it really does. I love it. I cannot recommend it enough, please go and check it out and show it some love.

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
