Small Bands You Need To Check Out...

 So, I've done a few of these before and I thought it'd fit in perfectly with small band week, so here we go! I'm going to be talking about a few bands I've handpicked that I'd love for you to check out, and they are all on the Small Band Appreciation playlist. All artists on here will have been featured no more than once. A lot of these will be people you've never heard me talk of unless it's in a weekly what I'm listening to! So, let's get into this! 

High Wire; 

High Wire is a pop-punk band from Chicago. Back in the day, there used to be a band called Bonfires, and I was obsessed with them! I loved them with my enter existence, and High Wire sound so similar to Bonfires so I pretty much fell in love with them instantly. Good Enough, Redcard and Some Kind of Miracle are my absolute favourites! Cannot get enough of those tracks, and they've all made it into my top 10 most listened to tracks of the month. Honestly, I love this band so much, and I'd highly recommend checking them out. 
Recommendations - Some Kind of Miracle, Good Enough, Redcard


Now, Carrington shares a member with one of my favourite band's Nautical Mile. Caleb is in both bands, and they'd actually came up on my Discover Weekly. Then I thought they reminded me a bit of Nautical Mile and then I found out Caleb was in Carrington so it all made sense! Honestly, I'm really digging this band and I think they're incredible. There's a lot of talent in this band an I'd highly recommend going and checking them out! 
Recommendations - Reverse and Reassurance


I like this band that much that I've even gone and bought Decay merch, and I think Decay are such are an incredible band. They have some super incredible and gripping songs. They really are a phenomenal band! I love them so much, and I feel like they're a band you definitely need to check out. I was actually recommended them by Ben and I trust Ben's recommendations so I knew they'd be a decent band to check out, and I really just love them! Their album is such a solid album and it's honestly insane!
Recommendations - Staring At The Sun and Misery

Dead Bundy;

Now, Dead Bundy aren't a band that I'm as enthusiastic about as the others, however! They're still good! I love their song She Fucks Me is such an intense track, and I just think they're great! They're songs definitely pack a punch, and they're super energetic. I do think they're insane, and I would highly recommend you going and checking them out. 
Recommendations - She Fucks Me and Locked In A Cage

Small Talk.; 

Now, I have actually done a post on Small Talk. before, but I thought I'd mention them in this, because they actually haven't been featured in one of these. Now, they're super lovely, and their song is so refreshing because it isn't overly refined. It's a bit rougher, and just a little bit edgier. They're got some incredible songs, and they've just released an acoustic EP a little over a week ago. I love them, and I'd highly recommend going and checking them out! 
Recommendations - Hawthorne and I Left My Hoodie In Your Car Just So I Could Call You


Now, for the last band, I'll mention, I have also done a post on them, it's Misplaced. If you know me, you know if it's a Scottish band I'm probably going to pay a little bit more attention to it, and especially Glaswegian bands! Misplaced is a Glaswegian pop-punk band! That's a big yes from me! They're so intense and energetic, and loud and obnoxious. I absolutely love them! They're such an incredibly talented band and I cannot recommend them enough! 
Recommendations - idk why i try and fuck that, i'm alright

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
