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, but I'm putting the opening line up there with some of the best I've heard! The mixture of clean and rough vocals hits the spot for me, and the fact this track really goes THAT hard wins me over. 

When listening to the track, it's clear to understand why Alt Press have branded A Few Too Many as one of "10 Rising UK-Based Pop-Punk Bands". 

It's an engaging track to listen to, and I know I put a lot of emphasis on this in my reviews, but I like when songs make me want to listen to them when they make me want to play it on full blast in my car, with the windows down and scream my lungs out to it! This is one of those tracks that reaffirms that pop-punk is not dead. 

After listening to History on repeat, I think I now have to rearrange my favourite small bands, because A Few Too Many may have just worked their way onto that list. I also know, it's only March but, I think History might feature in the Lemon Awards this year. This is going to be one of those songs, that I compare similar songs to. This is the stand out track of the band for me, like someone, tell me getting this song tattooed on me is a bad idea. That's how much, I love this track. I think it's surreal, I actually cannot process just how incredible it is! It packs that much, it hits the spot. It does everything I want it to do, and more. 

I'm well and truly obsessed with this track, it's one of my favourite recent releases, and I still can't believe the lyrics go that hard! Honestly, who gave A Few Too Many the right to make such a phenomenal track? Honestly, blown away by History. It's a mind-blowing track that does everything you want it to do and more. I am thoroughly impressed with this track and I cannot recommend you going and checking it out enough! It's a phenomenal track, and you should really go and check it out

Overall, I have to give it 5 out of 5 lemons. I want to give it more, and I would go as far as to say 6 out of 5 lemons, but I know some people refuse to accept that as a real rating. So, the band can choose which they run with. It's insane though, it's incredible. I'm blown away by this track, and it's everything I could want from the track and more! Honestly, would 100% recommend you go and check it out! It's incredible! You need to hear it. There's not one element in the track I dislike, and it had the perfect balance between everything. Nobody is drowning the other out, and it's just insane! Please, go take the 3 and a half minutes, out of your day to go listen to History if you haven't already! It's flawless!  

Also, if A Few Too Many want to visit my neck of the woods when gigs are allowed again, please count me in.

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

We’re All On Drugs by Dead Bundy

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about a blog favourite, Dead Bundy! Dead Bundy blessed us with another new track on Friday, and it’s called “We’re All On Drugs”.   This is a classic Dead Bundy track, is and one that packs the punch that most Dead Bundy songs seem to pack. I love the whole vibe and feel of this track, I love that there’s a great mix of different elements in the track to add that something to it, and to enable to the song to be engaging. There’s some subtle tempo changes, but they’re nothing dramatic, but I’m not mad at it. Honestly, this just isn’t a bad track whatsoever.  I honestly think this a pretty solid track, and whilst it does sound similar to some of the previous singles from Dead Bundy, it’s very much it’s own track, there’s some similarities within the track which is what gives it that classic Dead Bundy sound, but there’s enough different elements for you to not feel as if you’ve heard this track before. I really like it tho

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin
