Feel The Same by Viva La Bear

Hello, and welcome back to the blog! Today is Wednesday, today is my birthday and most years I never post on my birthday, but there's content to be done, so content shall be posted! Anyway, today we're talking about a new release from a band that has never been mentioned on the blog before! 

Viva La Bear are a riff-heavy, alt-rock band from the Forest of Dean (for those of you who have no idea where that is, it's in Gloucestershire, England) 

If you're a fan of, Lower Than Atlantis, Placebo, Twin Atlantic, Deaf Havana, Biffy Clyro then Viva La Bear might be the band for you! 

Now, I didn't know what to expect when I went into listening to their music, because alt-rock is such a varied genre but it's one of my all-time favourite genre's (second favourite genre) so most the time, even if I'm sceptical of bands that are alt-rock I normally love them. 

Feel The Same is an incredible track that truly does pack a punch. It's got similar vibes to a lot of Biffy Clyro's tracks. It's got an edge to it thanks to the riffs. When they say they're riff-heavy, they really are! But it works so well, and it gives them an edge! 

Upon hearing this track, I'm left asking myself why I haven't heard of these guys before, because they're insane! They're such a phenomenal band, and they really do pack a punch. They're one of the best bands I've discovered recently, and this track is a clear indication as to what I mean when I say they're phenomenal! 

If my brain could exit my skull, it would, this is more mind-blowing than a lot of the other releases I've branded as mind-blowing recently. 

It's a track I couldn't get sick of hearing, and before you consider if maybe this is just a strong track and their previous releases are weaker, let me tell you, they're really not! They're just as strong as this track, and I'm so blown away by Viva La Bear's talent! 

Such an incredible band, and they're definitely a band you need to check out if you like alt-rock. They're just so good! I can see this track easily making it to my top 5 of most listened to songs currently. It's just insane! I can't process how a band could be so talented and not be 100000x bigger! 

I love the lyrics to this track, and the whole vibe of this track is something I rate highly! It's insane! Don't be surprised if you hear me talking about Viva La Bear a lot, because, this band is something else! 

Overall, I have to give this track a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, I'd go as far as to give Feel The Same a 6 out of 5 lemons! It's THAT good! Honestly, you all need to check out Viva La Bear! They're a band definitely worth the time!

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
