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!

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
