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!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
