Vice Versa by Give Me A Reason

Hello! Welcome back to another instalment of Grace rambles about bands. 

Yesterday Give Me A Reason dropped their new EP Vice Versa, and having heard 3 singles off the EP I knew I was going to love it. Didn't expect to love it as much as I do though! 

The EP is 6 tracks long, which I'm really liking these longer than average EP's currently. 

The first track on the EP is Sad, which was the first single released off the EP, and I really do love it. This was actually the first Give Me A Reason track I heard and it's incredible. It's super catchy and I feel like it's a really good opening track. It's one of my favoruite songs of the year, and I just love it. It's got a decent amount of energy in the track and I really do rate it. So, I'm glad the EP opens with a strong track.

We then move onto Color, which wasn't a single. From the intro I didn't know what to expect, but it built up within 15 seconds so you did kind of know what was coming, and I really like that. I think Color is a very powerful track with plenty of energy, and I think it's got a lot more punk elements within the sound than the singles, and I really like this! I love it! I can't get over just how good it is, honestly, such a solid track! I love the lyrics to this track, and it's the sort of song that kind of makes me happy inside. I love the vibes, I love the lyrics. I just love this track. I prefer Color to any of the singles and I was in love with the singles, so that's saying something. I can see myself playing this song a lot, and this is 100% a standout track from Give Me A Reason for me! I love it so much! 

We then move onto Blue, which was the latest single, and this track is incredible. I did a full review of this track, and I spoke about how much I loved it and I still love it. This is my favourite out of the 3 singles, and I just think it's incredibly catchy, super energetic, and the lyrics are superb! I really love this track, and I cannot recommend it enough. If you're going to check out any of the singles make it Blue, because it's just a masterpiece. Absolutely love it! 

Next up we have Funny, which is still a favourite of mine. This is the catchiest song I've heard this year and again, I did a full review of this track, and I still love it. The chorus is incredible, the energy is next level with this song. I just adore it, it's such a tune, and 99% of the people I've played it too have loved it too! Mattia's vocals on this track are extrodinary and I just have so much love and admiration for this track! 

Second to last is Blur, and from the first few seconds I didn't think this was going to be an overly engaging track, but oh no, it is! It's got a similar vibe to Color in my opinion, and it's definetly a bit more pop-punk than the others. It reminds me of State Champs a lot on this track, and I'm in love with it. I love Mattia's vocals, and I love that you can hear everyone on this track. I just think it's such a well done song, and the guitar on this track is out of this world, the pure talent this band has is insane! I love it, I love the lyrics. I just love everything about this track, and I can see myself listening to this a lot too! 

Lastly we have, Bye Bye, which is a perfect track to end an EP on. I love the vibes of this track, and it reminds me (sound wise) to Blue and Color, I like that the sound changes throughout the track, and the lyrics are incredible. I just love this song so much, and it's incredible. I really thought the EP would end on a dud of a track, but it doesn't, and them vocals! The drums on this track as well! Honestly, the pure talent this band has is insane and this song proves that! 

So, to conclude and round up my thoughts, I want to start off by saying a massive well done to Mattia, Dario, Giuliano and Max. You've all done an incredible job with this EP, and you are all so incredibly talented and you deserve incredible things. 

I am well and truly in love with this EP and I know I'm going to be listening to this EP so much! I'm in love with it! It's such a well executed EP, and I'm going to hype this EP up a lot. 

Please go and check it out, because it's bop after bop after bop. Such a solid and flawless EP, and I am well and truly in love with this EP. Honestly, one of the best EP's of the year! 

I've got to give this EP a solid 5 out of 5 lemons. I'll go as far as to say 6 out of 5 lemons, because it's flawless. It's such a solid release and I can't get over just how great it is! Honestly, you NEED to check it out!

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.
