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.

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.
