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!

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track! The chorus on this track is incredible. The bridge, the verses, the drums, the guitar, the vocals! Everything on this track is next level, and the lyrics even g
