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 polite and inoffensive. It's got a nice vibe to it, and it's pretty easy to listen to and to find enjoyment in. 

It's definitely, without a doubt, a grunge track, but it's still nice, and it's a lot softer than some of the other grunge artists I've heard. It's a pretty decent song, and although the track is very repetitive for the bulk of the track, in terms of sound, there are still elements in there that are engaging, and that gives the track a bit of an edge and helps it pack a punch. 

I could easily listen to this for an hour and not want to skip it, it's not a song that I'll reach for all the time, it's very much a mood dependant track, but it's still a great track, and it's got quite a nice vibe about it. I like that although it's a quieter track, you can still pick out the vocals, and the instrumental aspects aren't drowning out the vocals. 

It's a pretty enjoyable track, and it's a solid track. I can't fault it, and it's pretty enjoyable. I'd recommend it to anybody who's in the market for a new band to check out, and if you like grungy tracks, if you like indie vibes, then go and check this track out! It's a pretty solid track, and I can see a lot of people enjoying it, and it's one of those tracks that I think is going to be fairly universal for most music tastes. 

Overall, I'd give it a 4 out of 5 lemons! It's a solid track, and I'm eager to see what Cherry Bleach release next!

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
