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.

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now

Where To Start with Supporting Small Bands...

  Hello, welcome back, or welcome if you've never been here before!  Anybody that knows me, follows my socials and reads this blog will know that I am a massive fan of small bands. I don't like music snobs, I really cannot stand them, and it's really important to me for people to support small bands.  Whenever I tell people I know, or on Twitter some bands to check out, I always say the same bands, I add to that list when I find new bands, but I don't talk about all them bands here on the blog. Therefore, I wanted to make a post, dividing up bands by genre, giving you some top picks of their songs, and telling you ways you can support small bands that actually mean more than just streaming their songs, as we all know it takes a lot of streams for a band to see any money from that.  So, if you want to support bands, try and buy their merch. Granted, not all bands have merch that you can just order, but quite a lot of them do. If you can buy their merch, buy their merch.
