Party People by Black Star Jackals

Welcome back to another blog post, and I'm back with another blog post featuring another new band. I was approached by Charlotte from Rebel Rose about doing this post, and of course, as always, I said yes. 

Now, I had really high hopes for this band when I got the press pack through as I saw Glaswegian alt-rock, and anybody who's a regular around here knows that 1. alt-rock is like my second favourite genre, and 2. you could tell me any band was Scottish and especially Glaswegian and I would be all for it. My favourite band is from Glasgow, some of my small bands are from Scotland, and Glasgow in particular so I had really high hopes for Black Star Jackals and this track when I saw it was Glaswegian alt-rock. 

So, from the intro alone I was actually pretty impressed, it was interesting enough to engage my attention. I don't know why, but when the song kicked in I was quite surprised because this wasn't what I was necessarily expecting, but when it got to that chorus it won me over. I loved the vibes, and the intensity of the track. It is a pretty intense track, and that's not a bad thing and I don't mean that in vocals sense, I mean that in the sense of, it's quite loud and anthemic. It became clear to see why this track has already amassed nearly 13k streams on Spotify alone in the 7 weeks it's been out for. 

It's a very distinctive track, one that I've never heard anything comparable to, but I like it. It's nice to hear an alt-rock song that is very distinctive and unique. I think this is such an incredible track, that's got it's own, original sound and I'm here for it. As I said previously, I had high hopes for this track, and I think I was right to have high hopes as this track is phenomenal and really does pack a punch. I didn't actually anticipate this track being anywhere near as incredible as it is, and it's actually really catchy, it's not one of those annoyingly catchy songs, but it's one of those songs that you just know the chorus is going to be cropping up in your head time and time again. 

This is a track I can listen to repeatedly and not get bored of. I really do like this track, and I think it's incredible. Cannot recommend it enough, if you like your alt-rock but you want it to be original, you want something that's going to surprise you, then go check out Party People by Black Star Jackals, because it really is an incredible track. 

Overall, I'd have to give this track a solid 5 out of 5 lemons. It's just how distinctive this sound is, and how incredibly well done this track is that makes me give it 5 out of 5. It's just got such a refined sound that's also got that edge that we need nowadays to be able to tell bands apart, but honestly, I'm really impressed and I'm excited to see what's to come next from Black Star Jackals.

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
