The Ghost Of My Empty Glass by Distant Blue


THE LADS ARE BACK! Yup, Distant Blue have returned and have decided to bless our ears with an absolute tune and a half! I feel very lucky to be able to bring you my thoughts on the track ahead of its release TOMORROW! I'm telling you when this drops tomorrow YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO IT! 

Before we get started, I just want to let you know, that the lads have told me they've been in the studio and there's a whole new mantra of music coming, there are various tracks in the making! And to be honest, that's pretty exciting especially if The Ghost of My Empty Glass is anything to go off of! I am 100% here for it! 

So the first 10 seconds or so, I was kinda liking it, didn't really know where it was going, but I was here for it, and then Ed decided he was going to kill me with his vocals, and that was it, I knew this was going to be one hell of a tune! 

Straight off, I love that there's change and depth within the sound which everyone knows at this point is essential for me, because I like music to keep me engaged and wanting to listen to it on repeat for days, and Distant Blue know exactly how to do that, they never disappoint. But, this track is something else! I love that you can very clearly hear Ed, Pete, Kieran and Jack. Nobody is drowning the other out. I love that so much! 

This is one of the most energetic and intense songs I've heard in a LONG time! I am obsessed. I really can't put it into words just how mind-blowing this track is. Distant Blue are really proving themselves to be one of the best bands out there. If you aren't following them and supporting them, then you need to go and check them out. They're one of the best bands out there and this track really does prove that. 

I know Distant Blue are my joint-favourite small band, but I really do mean it when I say this track is insane! If there is only one song you listen to that I've spoken about in the past month, make it this song. I honestly cannot believe that Distant Blue really made this. The talent in this band is surreal, and you need to be listening to this song when it drops tomorrow. 

The chorus on this track is mind-blowing, and the lyrics! EXTRAORDINARY! I swear Distant Blue may have just made the best track of the year. I didn't think it was possible for them to top their previous releases, but they somehow did. 

There really aren't enough words in the English language to explain just how incredible this song is. It truly is a masterpiece. This track proves that Distant Blue know exactly what they're doing, it shows just how incredibly talented they all are, and it proves that they deserve to be one of the biggest acts in the scene currently. This song is just so loud, intense, it's catchy, it's everything you could want in a song and more. I honestly can't process just how insane it is! 

I honestly cannot recommend this song enough, you NEED to be listening to it and hyping it when it drops tomorrow. No if's, no but's, you NEED to. I am well and truly in love with this track, and it is the best song of the year to date. I doubt much could top this though, it really is just insane, so well done lads! 

Now, it's time for the bit only the band cares about. Now, I always tend to give Distant Blue a solid 5 out of 5, but this song is better than any previous release, and therefore I have to give it a solid 6 out of 5 lemons (but for the few that won't accept that as a real rating 5 out of 5 lemons, the band can decide which one they go with). I honestly am so blown away with this track, and the talent the lads have! Honestly, it's insane! Well done lads on making an absolute belter of a track. I'm so blown away by this song, and I can't wait to see what comes out next!

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
