Courtney Love by Crystal Tides

 I just want to say that, whilst I (Grace) have a bit of a meltdown about life, one of my lovely mutuals Tanya is going to be bringing you a couple of posts on a Wednesday. I will eventually return fully and I'll be back to doing loads of posts, but whilst I'm not doing okay, just to keep churning out content all the time, Tanya will be doing a couple of posts on a Wednesday for me! 


Following the success of their single ‘Monday’ back in May, the Crystal Tides boys are back with an equally catchy tune!

You may have already heard it, it was released back on November 6th and has since been played on Radio X, been added to the Virgin Radio playlist and the Spotify Hot New Bands playlist, but if you aren’t among the 14k+ streams, you are missing out!

The track starts with the same distinct, upbeat energy all their songs start with, making sure to have you dancing around your room within seconds. Similarly, the lyrics are catchy and will be stuck in your head all day, but it may be the lead singer’s voice that really makes the track, with an impressive ability to make you feel the same passion that the band so clearly have when writing their music.

Despite the title, the band have said that there is no relevance to the famous Courtney Love, the lyrics actually talk about taking a stand against those who try to take advantages of new bands, such as themselves. The lyrics in the chorus (“I’m taking over, overwhelming circumstances, now that I’m a little bit older, you don’t matter now.”) are a definite ‘screw you, I’m doing it my way’ – and it’s great to see a band using their music to talk about a struggle that a lot of people new to the music industry face!

Crystal Tides are absolutely ones to watch in 2021, they already have a headline show that is rescheduled for the 15th of January in Southampton and if they keep releasing tracks like these, very soon you will be hearing them everywhere!

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

We’re All On Drugs by Dead Bundy

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about a blog favourite, Dead Bundy! Dead Bundy blessed us with another new track on Friday, and it’s called “We’re All On Drugs”.   This is a classic Dead Bundy track, is and one that packs the punch that most Dead Bundy songs seem to pack. I love the whole vibe and feel of this track, I love that there’s a great mix of different elements in the track to add that something to it, and to enable to the song to be engaging. There’s some subtle tempo changes, but they’re nothing dramatic, but I’m not mad at it. Honestly, this just isn’t a bad track whatsoever.  I honestly think this a pretty solid track, and whilst it does sound similar to some of the previous singles from Dead Bundy, it’s very much it’s own track, there’s some similarities within the track which is what gives it that classic Dead Bundy sound, but there’s enough different elements for you to not feel as if you’ve heard this track before. I really like it tho

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin
