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!

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
