Not Like The Movies by Holygood


Holygood are back! Not like they were gone for long, but they are back with another track! 

This track, titled 'Not Like The Movies' is comparable to their last release 'Moving Mountains' which, I did love! However, as I've said before, Holygood could release anything at this point and I'd love it and would think it's incredible! So, when Not Like The Movies dropped today, I knew I was going to be impressed because Holygood are always impressive! 

As I said, this is a slower more chilled out track, but it still goes hard! It still hits the spot, and I still adore it! I think it's one of those songs with spring/summer vibes. The ones where it just gives you them vibes and the artwork help prove that too! 

This isn't my favourite Holygood track, as we all know by this point that my favourite is Better Off Before, but I do still really like this track and I think it's pretty impressive! It's got enough elements to gain my attention and keep me interested, whilst also still sounding like the other Holygood tracks we've seen from them! 

I'm really impressed with this track, and I like how Holygood are releasing plenty of tracks with different vibes. The tracks are always impressive and engaging, and although I have my favourites, I never dislike any track they've put out. I also think, Not Like The Movies is a fairly universal track and can see it appealing to a lot of people. 

Overall, although this isn't my favourite track ever, I still like it, and I still think it's a solid track. It's engaging, slow, but not boring. It's intriguing and it's able to grip my attention for a decent amount of time. It's a track I can easily listen to on repeat for a good amount of time without wanting something else on, and even on days like today, when I've been in one of those moods where I don't know what I want to listen to, I've managed to listen to Not Like The Movies a good 20-30 times, in a row without getting bored. 

I would say it's a good song, not my favourite, but I actually prefer it to moving mountains, but every Holygood track is incredible and I love them all! So, I have to say, when it comes to my ratings, I'd give it a 5 out of 5 lemons, as that's what I gave their previous releases, and it's still a solid track, a track that's mood dependant for myself, but it's still good! I really like it, and as always, I'm really excited to see what Holygood release next!

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
