Too Far by Good Hustles


Good Hustles are back, and I love that they've released three tracks since September. That's a song every other month currently, and I wish more bands could give me that level of content, but also we're in the middle of a global pandemic, things are difficult. 

Anyway, going into this track, the questions we're looking at are;

- Can Good Hustles yet again outdo themselves? 

- Is Too Far going to be anywhere near as good as Smile and Coffee? 

Well, let's get into this, and talk about Too Far. 

Now, we all know Harvey (Good Hustles' drummer) is one of my favourite people in the entire world, and I think he's a surreal drummer but when he sent me this track to listen to, I was fairly excited but also very nervous because Coffee and Smile were such solid tracks that I didn't think Too Far could be THAT good, because I mean, three bangers in a row? That's a challenge. Especially when a song needs to top the previous release in order to not be underwhelming. 

I was pleasantly surprised with Too Far, listening to the intro I was like "Eh, I guess this is alright not my favourite though" and then it kicked in, and my brain exited my skull. The vocals are out of this world, and of course, the drums! Incredible! I love how the chorus really packs a punch, and I love the intensity of this track. 

I think it's a track with a lot of energy, and it's insane! Honestly, in love with it! I love the bridge, I love that it's a song you can easily listen to 100 times and not be bored, honestly, such a great track! 

The way Morton sings the chorus produces the same reaction as emo kids hearing the g note. The intensity of this track is incredible, and I love the sound Good Hustles are going for! 

I love this track so much, and I'll be surprised if it doesn't make it into my top 5 songs of the month, it's incredible, cannot find one flaw in the track. 

So, to go back to the questions I set out at the start; 

Yes, Good Hustles can outdo themselves, because they have, and they're setting the standard higher and higher every time. 

Yes, Too Far is just as good as Smile and Coffee, such an incredible track and I the vibe of this track is incredible! 

I cannot fault this track, and I'm blown away with it. I think it's an incredible track and one that you definitely need to go and check out! If you haven't heard it already, then go check it out now! It's insane! Cannot recommend it enough! 

Overall, a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! It's great, and I would give it higher if I could. I love this track, and you NEED to go and check it out!

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
