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.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
