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!

Recent Releases: Autumn Fires, Prime and The Headspace

Ahh! I'm back! Today we're talking Recent Releases again! I do need to do a part 2 to this post where I talk about Ollie Hayes and maybe a couple of others, but today I just want to talk about new singles. We're going to be talking about new tracks from The Headspace, Prime and Autumn Fires. I've been away for a few weeks because I've just been so ill recently. I've had tonsillitis, then I badly injured my ankle, and I've just not been vibing with life lately. But I'm back! Part 2 of this will be coming soon!   First up, let's talk about Autumn Fires, they dropped their debut EP a few weeks back, and I love Autumn Fires. I think they're a phenomenal band and one that have so much potential to achieve great things. However, part of me was a little lacklustre with the EP because every track besides 1 was something we'd already heard. There was only 1 new track on the EP, which I mean, thankfully, it was a new track, but it was released as a sin

Recent Releases: Ollie Hayes and Protect Your Heart

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted because I've been ill and it's been the festive season, and at this point, most people know I do try and take a month off around the festive period, but with very few releases coming out, and no gigs for a while yet, I've taken 2 weeks off between Christmas and New Year, and then I'm going to try and chill out between now and my birthday because in the coming weeks I want to be doing the 2021 Annual Lemon Awards. Not the half a year thing, the full year. A year in review, where I look at all releases from January 1st to December 31st. So, let's get these last few releases from 2021 reviewed so they can at least be a contender for the Lemon Awards.  Up first, let's talk about Protect Your Heart because that's only a single to talk about, whereas Ollie's review is an album review. So a few weeks back Protect Your Heart released their latest track "Worst Side of M

Biggest Regret (she is the worst, she is the best) by Until You Disappear

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! I know I’ve been away for a few weeks, but I needed a break. I feel like work, the blog and uni is just all a bit overwhelming currently. But I said I was going to attempt blogmas, so let’s attempt it! Let’s do a review a day and clear this back log! New bands, old bands, albums, EP’s, singles. Let’s do this!   So today let’s kick this off with talking about Until You Disappear and their latest single Biggest Regret (she is the worst, she is the best). Now it’s no secret that I love Until You Disappear. This has a bit more a punk feel to to it compared to some of their previous singles. I’m still a big fan of this track, and it’s decent. It’s punchy, and it’s impactful. It’s a great track and one that I know I’ll come to adore just as much as precious singles. This is a phenomenal track, and it’s although it’s got that more punk feeling to it than the likes of Let Go and Drunk Me, it’s still a phenomenal track and one that it’s going to appeal to a lot
