How's She Doing? by Pavè


Welcome back to a new instalment of Grace talks about new music in the hopes that you will actually take her advice and check out the music that she hypes up! 

Today I'm welcoming a new band to the blog, and I hope you will show them all the love and support in which they deserve! 

Pavè are an indie rock band from Manchester. They are female-fronted, but that should never influence your opinion on them. They're a 6 piece consisting of; 

- Alanya-Jade Simms - Vocals 
- Jordi Shevlin- Lead guitar 
- Kevin Peate- Rhythm guitar 
- Leila Sumner - Bass
- Ben Pursehouse - Drums
- Lam Do - Synth

For Fans Of - Nothing But Thieves, Yonaka, The Amazons

Straight in, I didn't know if I was going to like this track or not, but I was actually pleasantly surprised by just how incredible it is. I love Alanya-Jade's voice, and I actually quite like the vibe of the song. It reminds me a lot of Wayward Daughter, who was one of the first bands I really got into when I was like 12/13 and proper finding what music I liked. So it's almost a little nostalgic for me, as it reminds me of a lot Wayward Daughter. I really like the guitar on this track as well. I love how soothing it sounds and feels. 

I love the change within the vocals, and I love that nobody is overpowering the other. I say that about a lot of songs, it's one of the things I do tend to point out, but for me, it's really important to be able to hear all the different elements in a track, and that's one of the things I love about this track. I love the lyrics, and I love how it's a song with emotion within it, but Alanya-Jade keeps her vocals steady throughout the track, and I love seeing that because I think that shows just how incredible of a vocalist she is! 

I've got to admit, I do truly think Pavè are an incredibly talented band and I can see myself listening to them a lot! They're such a nice and enjoyable band to listen to, and I feel like How's She Doing? could be a track that makes the Lemon Awards see a bit of a shift (that post will be coming in a couple of weeks nearer to Christmas and the end of 2020 when music does dry up). 

Now, if you're a regular around here then you'll probably know what I want to say, but I'm not going to say it, I'm instead going to contradict myself. I quite like this song, there isn't a lot of change within the sound, however, there's still change and a bit of an edge on this track because of Alanya-Jade's vocals! That is the bit that gives this song a bit of a kick, and I do like how soothing this song is. It's a song I can definitely see myself listening to a lot, and I do really like it. 

So overall, after listening to How's She Doing? a fair few times, I have to admit I really like it, and I think we could potentially see this song feature in the Lemon Awards, and I'm really excited to see what Pavè come out with next! I think they're definitely a band that you should be going and checking out and showing lots of love and support to! 

Overall I think I'm going to give How's She Doing? a solid 4.5 out of 5 lemons! I'm really enjoying this track, and I can see it making it into my top songs of the month! I would 100% recommend going and checking it out!

The 2020 Lemon Awards

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi

Prospect Music Award 2021: The Final...

So, I didn't actually end up doing the press for the second round of the awards, because I dislocated my shoulder about 5 times in 48 hours.
