Worldwide Catastrophe by Royals

Welcome back to another blog post! Today we’re talking about Royals and their latest track Worldwide Catastrophe. I was proper hyped for this track, and it really didn’t disappoint me.   Worldwide Catastrophe is a belter of a track that packs an incredibly big punch. It’s got a super catchy chorus with some incredible vocals. The guitar, the drums, the lyrics, all aspects of this track are phenomenal. It’s just surreal how great this track. It does everything you want it to do and more. The vocals between the verse and first chorus really won me over. They’re that level of catchy that would get stuck in your head for a week later.   I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t obsessed with this track, it’s incredible! It’s super catchy and it’s anthemic. I think it’s incredible, and it’s clear to see why this song has already amassed nearly 15,000 streams on Spotify in the just over a week it’s been out. It’s such an incredible track and even just listening to it once shows just how incredible the

Hold Your Ground by Project Revise

  Welcome back to another blog post! Now, I've never featured Project Revise on the blog before, but they're a band I've been aware of for a decent amount of time now. Now, I offered Project Revise today's slot when this track dropped a little over a week ago.  I want to start this post, by saying just how blown away I was with this post. I've heard other tracks from Project Revise before, but this track just blew my mind. From the first few seconds, it had my attention, the vocals are incredible, it was engaging to listen to and it did everything I wanted it to do and more. The heavy drums and guitar on this track are just insane, I love the beat to this track, and I feel like this would be such a good song to have a good scream to. This is one of those tracks, that if you heard it live, you'd want to lose your voice to.  The verses pack just as much of a punch as the chorus does, and although it's a fast-paced punk track, it's also really catchy. It

Introducing: Blue Sunday

  Disclaimer: I do not own this photo Left to right back row- Ryan, Ben, Kaileb  Front - Rozie It feels like forever since I actually did an introducing post! But, I'm back and today I'm introducing you to a new band! About a week or so ago, Kaileb reached out to me and asked me if I'd be willing to do a post about Blue Sunday, and of course, I said yes.  So, Blue Sunday is a 4-piece alt-rock band from Suffolk, England. The band consists of;  - Rozie Smith on Rhythm Guitar and Vocals - Kaileb Cargill on Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals - Ben Regester on Bass - Ryan Meyers on Drums If you're a fan of the likes of; Arctic Monkeys, Paramore or The Offspring then Blue Sunday could be the band for you!  Blue Sunday have one track out currently, and that was released back on the 5th December 2020, the track is titled 'Mirrors'.  I really like Mirrors, I think it's a decent song, it's got a good beat to it. It's engaging to listen to, and it's just a gene

Killing Floor by Rival Shadows

Welcome back yet again to me talking about another new artist to the blog! Today we're talking about Rival Shadows. Rival Shadows is the musical alias of Liam Kohlar, hailing from Lancashire Rival Shadows creates alt-rock music with inspiration from the likes of Radiohead and Bombay Bicycle Club. Yesterday (Friday 26th March), Rival Shadows put out their latest track 'Killing Floor'.  I had no idea what to expect from this release. I knew it was alt-rock and I think, at this point, we all know I am a massive fan of alt-rock, and it's one of my favourite genres of all time. So, going on the genre basis I had some expectations, that I'd, at the very least, like this track. I also knew that Megan always sends me great musicians, so there I also had some sort of expectation. The overall expectation for this track was that I'd at least like the track 50% because it was alt-rock and Megan had sent it across to me.  The intro had me a bit confused, and a bit sceptical

Back To Life by Autumn Fires

  Autumn Fires have returned with their new track 'Back To Life'. The track dropped today (Friday 16th March) and I think by this point we all know I'm a big fan of Autumn Fires so I was pretty hyped for this track to drop!  For starters, I love the rhythm of this track, I think it's incredibly catchy and engaging, and Charlotte's vocals just keep getting better and better the more tracks are released. The whole vibe of this track is incredible, and it's a lot more refined sounding compared to previous tracks. It's a great track that packs an incredible punch. Now, I may love every Autumn Fires track, but this track does something for me. It's just such an incredible sounding track, and I'm just generally really impressed with this track.  It's a pretty catchy track, and I can see myself reaching for Back To Life, a lot! It's such an incredible track, the vocals, the drums, the guitar, the lyrics, everything about this track is pretty incredi

Face The Wall by Near Mrs

  Today we see another blog favourite return with their new release! Near Mrs dropped their new track 'Face The Wall' today (25th March) and we all know that I love Near Mrs and I'm always bringing coverage of them to the blog whenever I can.  Last month we saw Near Mrs release 'Wishful Thinking' and as expected, I loved that track so much! So I had pretty high hopes for this track as I do with all Near Mrs tracks, as they never disappoint!  This song had my attention from the first few seconds and managed to maintain it through the entire track. The verses are great, they're good, but that chorus is something else! I tell you, Near Mrs know how to make a banging chorus, and it always blows my mind every time they put out a new track. I love the change in tempo between the chorus and verses, I'm a bit fan of that and it really does do something for me. I also like that the first verse is a bit of build-up to where the track is going, it's not like the ve

Previous Releases: Raging Clue

 Last week I did a review of Raging Clue's latest release 'Road So Far', and after that I was asked if I'd be willing to go back and share my thoughts on the previous releases. So, of course, I said yes and here we are! Today I'm going to be going back to the previous Raging Clue releases and telling you my thoughts on them. Their first release was Wildchild, which was released last year. This is one of those classics, fast-paced punk-rock tracks. A sound, that we hear a lot from classic tracks. It's reminiscent of something you'd hear from the bigger punk-rock bands, this isn't my favourite track of there's but, let's be realistic Road So Far really did win my heart. This is still a great track though, it's punchy, it's got that iconic beat and rhythm to it, and it hits the spot. It does what you'd expect it to do, and as a debut single, I think it's a solid track. It's not as refined of a sound as what they have currently, b

Shower Songs by Lewis Kelly

Welcome back, yet again, today I'm back with a blog favourite, Lewis Kelly. On Friday the 19th of March, Lewis Kelly released his EP titled 'Shower Songs'. This is a 5 track EP, and although I've done full reviews of some of the tracks on the EP, of course, I still had to feature the EP.  The EP opens with a remix of hurting you is inevitable, now, I loved the original version of this track, and I love this remix just as much, if not more. I'm not normally the one for remixes but this is an exception. I love this, I love the vibe of this, and it's just an absolute banger. It's just insane how good it is, and if you listened to the original and you liked it, you may love this, but if you found the original not as upbeat as you'd have liked, then the remix is for you. It's incredible and such a great opening track.  We then follow up with posty, and I've voiced how this is my favourite track by Lewis before, and I still stand by this. It's an i

Duct Taped to a 40 by Dead Bundy

  Dead Bundy have returned with a new track! Although it's only been about 6 weeks since we saw them release When I'm High, it feels like forever! But, they're back with a new track called Duct Taped to a 40!  This song doesn't sound dissimilar to the previous release, and it still packs that same sort of punch and is just as engaging as the previous track. We have an incredibly catchy chorus with decent verses. A great beat, with classic Dead Bundy lyrics. This song radiates blink-182 vibes. It's a great song that does exactly what you want it to do.  It's a decent song, I really like this track, I think When I'm High still has that extra bit of an edge, and I still prefer that track, but that's not to say I don't absolutely love this track, and there are some lines in this track that really hit the spot for me. I really enjoy this track, I love the bridge to this track as well! I love how upbeat the song sounds, and that it's just a generally c

Turn Up The Music by Future Radio

  Another day, another new band featuring on the blog. Today we're talking about Future Radio, and their latest single Turn Up The Music. Now, this track is not a new track, as it was released on their album which was put out last year, but it is the newest single, and the final single from the album.  Turn Up The Music was put out as a single last week, and when I got the email from Future Radio, asking if I'd do some coverage, I didn't know what to expect from the track. It's the first I'd ever heard of Future Radio, so I didn't know if it was going to be good or not.  The intro had me a little confused, I didn't really know what direction this was going in, and I was a bit sceptical of what this release was going to sound like. When the vocals kicked in, the direction of the song became clear. Now, this is unlike anything I've heard recently, and it's unlike anything I can think of. It's not bad, but it's got a bit of a different vibe to w

History by A Few Too Many

  Welcome back, yet again where I talk about yet another band and their latest release! Today we're talking about A Few Too Many and their latest release History. They reached out to me on Instagram and asked if I'd be up for doing a review, and this being me, I, of course, said yes.   If you follow Alt Press then you may have seen them posting about this track, because the track had its premiere with them which I think was incredible! The track was released two weeks ago and having listened to A Few Too Many multiple times in the past, I knew that this song would be decent. Their previous tracks have set the standard fairly high, so I was super stoked for this track!  They didn't disappoint with this track, and it's a belter! It's incredible, it packs that punch I long for in tracks, and I mean, it's pop-punk, of course, I was going to love it. It's that opening line that really drew me in, because that really goes hard. To be fair, all the lyrics go hard,

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track! The chorus on this track is incredible. The bridge, the verses, the drums, the guitar, the vocals! Everything on this track is next level, and the lyrics even g

Vitamin E by Rubber

  Welcome back to yet another blog post, where I'm talking about another new artist to the blog! Today we're talking about Rubber, who reached out to me on Instagram to see if I'd do some content for them, as today was my last free slot for the week.  So, about a month ago now, Rubber put out their latest track in which is titled 'Vitamin E', and before I get properly into the review, I was a little sceptical because I didn't think this was going to be my type of music. Now, don't get me wrong I listen to everything and anything, but normally we really just see me talk about alt genres, so I was a little sceptical, but I actually liked the track more than I thought I would.  It's an incredible track, it's not a boring track, nor one that loses my attention. I actually really like this track, it packs a punch, and I really like the vocals on the track. I love that it's a track that is pretty easy to listen to, even for someone who this isn't t

Road So Far by Raging Clue

  Welcome back to yet another day when I actually upload! Today, I'm featuring another new band on the blog, however, very on-brand for me and the blog. Today I'm talking about a new release from a pop-punk/rock band, that hail from Nottingham! Yes, I'm back with Notts content again! Promise, I still love my local scene. Anyway, Raging Clue reached out to me the other day and asked if I'd want to do a review on their new track, I, of course, said yes. So, let's just get into talking about Road So Far by Raging Clue.  Now, I had mid-tier expectations for this track, as I have listened to Raging Clue before and I do quite enjoy their sound, so I knew this track had to be decent. Didn't expect it to be as good as it is.  Straight off, this song is enough to hold my attention and the vocals! The verse's pack a punch, and they're incredible. They're catchy, and I love the whole vibe of the track, but the change between verses and chorus is pure audible pl

Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure by The Whether Channel

  Welcome back to another blog post, where I'm talking about a band that's new to the blog! Today I'm talking about The Whether Channel's debut EP 'Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure' and I'm pretty stoked about it! The Whether Channel reached out to me on TikTok after they'd seen the series I do on there about small bands, and they asked me to check out their EP, and then I, of course, offered to work with them on a post, so I did!  Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure is a 6 track EP, so let's get into it!  The first track is 'Re:Start' and I don't know why I didn't expect it to sound like it does, but the intro sounds like it's going to have a more electric feeling to it, but when it kicks in it just blew my mind! I can't process how great this track actually is, and that chorus goes SO hard! Like this track is next level, and I love the lyrics to this track too1 I think it's insane, and the vocals are somethi
