Coffee by Good Hustles

So today, Good Hustles have returned with a new track called Coffee! It seems like forever since they released Smile, but it's not actually been that long (about 2 months). 

Now, we all know how highly I spoke of Smile, and therefore I was very skeptical of Coffee, just like I tend to be when the last release was incredible. I'm always thinking "But how can they actually top that?" so, really what we're looking for when listening to Coffee is, do Good Hustles know what they're doing? Do they know how to make solid tune after solid tune? Let's find out! 

I will start off, by saying that intro is beautiful! Right up my street, and I just love the vibe of the track from the intro. We're off to a solid start, it's definently gripping to listen to from the second you hit play. 

We get about 15 seconds in, and we have some beautiful vocals! I love that this is a heavier, darker sounding track compared to smile. I loved Smile so much, but so far Coffee is proving to be an incredibly strong track, that might demote Smile in my rankings of best Good Hustles tracks! 

The chorus is so loud and anthemic, I'm honestly so impressed with this track! It's phenomenal, and I really do think Good Hustles have just gone and beat every other release this year with Coffee! 

The drums on this track are extrodinary! I actually cannot process the talent of Harvey Duddles! Honestly, the talent! Anybody's that's a regular round here knows that it takes a lot for me to pick the drums over vocals on a track, and this track, as mind blowing as the vocals are, I absolutely love the intensity of the drums. It's almost overpowering, but it's also definetly not overpowering. It just fits the vibe of the track so well, and I cannot process the talent! 

There's some beautiful guitar riffs in this track as well, and I just have no words! I didn't expect to be so in love with this song as I am. I really did think that Smile couldn't be topped, and then Good Hustles really said "Here, have Coffee". This is one of those songs that makes me rethink my top 5, and it makes me want to put Good Hustles even higher! 

I also just want to say that Morton's vocals on this track are incredible! The power in his voice! 

I am so blown away by the talent of the this band, and the intensity of this track! I think it's super catchy, and the talent they all have! It's insane! I'm absolutely in love with this track, and I truly think this is my song of the year! I don't think this can be beaten. It's just that good, and I cannot recommend this song enough! If you're only going to listen to my opinion once, and trust me with one song recommendation then make the one song you pick, Coffee by Good Hustles! 

My brain may as well of exited my skull at this point, I really cannot process just how good this song is! It's so loud and intense, but it's also super catchy, the vocals, the drums, the guitar, the bass, the lyrics! There's not one element on this song that I can fault and I truly believe it's a flawless track! 

So before I summarise I want to go back to my original questions...

Do Good Hustles know what they're doing?

Yes, I truly believe that they do know what they're doing. To release solid track after solid track they have to know what they're doing, and this whole sound they're going for currently is incredible! So yeah, I definently think they know what they're doing! 

Do they know how to make solid tune after solid tune? 

Yes! I didn't think they could top Smile, but they did! They wiped the floor with Smile! And if you look at their discography then they're putting out great songs! So yes, Good Hustles certainly know how to make solid tune after solid tune, and I think they're setting the bar fairly high! 


So, I am very impressed with Coffee, and I'm blown away by just how good it is! I'm really excited to hear what comes next for them, because they really are such an incredible band! I can't process how good this song is, and it's definently going to be one of my most listened to songs for the next month! It's honestly incredible, and I cannot recommend it enough! Well done to Good Hustles for this song, honestly, it's insane! I love it! 

Now, this is the bit that only the band cares about, and everybody else ignores! 

Overall, I'm giving Coffee a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! I'll also give a 6 out of 5 lemons! But for the people that don't accept that, it's a 5/5, but it really has wiped the floor with Smile, and now I'm going to go and listen to Coffee on repeat for the next week! 

Please go and show Good Hustles some love and support, and please go and check this track out! It's incredible! I love it so much!

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
