Slaughterhouse by Lykos

Yes, we have a new band on the blog! I am pleased to announce that Lykos are the latest edition to the Life Is A Lemon squad, Lewis reached out to me on Instagram, and asked me if I'd be up for working with them on a review of their new track Slaughterhouse, and of course, this is me, so I said yes! So, like always, I will briefly introduce you to Lykos, and then we'll get into the review section of this post! 

So, Lykos is a three-piece, grungy, psychedelic, punk band from Bristol! The band consists of; 

Ezra Young - Guitar and Vocals
Robert Taylor - Drums
Lewis Lloyd - Bass

The band have two previous singles, that are pretty solid, and pack a punch. They're a band you expect to be a lot bigger than they are, and it's a sound that isn't over-saturated in the scene. 

They've got a pretty cool, edgy vibe about them, and I think they're a pretty solid band, but we're all here for the review, so let's get into it! 

Now, I'm not normally the biggest fan of grungy sounding music, but I actually quite like Lykos as a band, and especially Slaughterhouse. 

I quite like the intensity of the track, and the fact that there's a lot going on in the track, but also that you can still clearly hear everyone, nobody is overpowering the other, and I've always spoken in other reviews about how important that is for me, honestly, I really dig it. I think it's got a pretty cool vibe about it, and I think it's a pretty catchy song. 

I, of course, love that there's still change and depth within the sound of this track, and I quite like the lyrics. I think it's a pretty solid track, it's a track with a lot of potential and a lot of energy. Honestly, I can see this being a track that appeals to so many people, if you like grungy vibes, if you like punk, if you're very varied with your music taste, and you like intense but incredible tracks, then you've got a good chance of liking this track. It's insane! It's energetic, and it really does pack a punch. 

Due to the fact, this is such an engaging track to listen to, and the fact that it's got a lot of change in it, it's not too repetitive. Honestly, a solid track. I love it! 

Overall, a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! It's a belter of a track, and as I said before if you like grungy vibes, you like punk, you like your punk rock bands, then Lykos is going to be the one for you! Make sure you go show this track some love and support, and if you like the track, spread the word about them!

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
