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 something else! I was expecting this track to be something I liked but didn't love, and now I'm sat here thinking "Oh shit, this is good". It's insane! Honestly, after hearing this track I have high hopes for the rest of the EP! 

Moving onto the section track 'A Midwestern Commerical About...' and just from the intro this track had my attention! This has a softer intro style compared to the previous track, but I'm still here for it! That actual main part of the track is incredible and although this one doesn't hit me like the previous track, it's still good and it still goes hard! Such an incredible track and it packs a punch. Would highly recommend it, and there are so many parts in this song that have me feeling all nice inside because it's just audible pleasure really. 

The third track is titled 'Save Me' and it has a softer intro, the intro didn't win me over. However, you can hear the build-up within the track, and it was when it properly kicked in that it had won me over. The lyrics to this and the power within the vocals are incredible! I really do rate this track and I'd recommend going and checking it out because this really is a great song. The verses don't engage me like the chorus does, but I'm completely okay with that, as I still like the track and I'd willingly listen to this track just for the chorus! 

Next, we have 'Must Be Nice' which did actually catch my attention just from the intro, and then it just got better and better the further we got into the track. I'm really impressed with this track and I think it's incredible, it doesn't lose my attention at any point during the track, and it packs a decent enough punch. It's not my favourite track on the EP, but I still love it! I still think this is a great track! 

Second to last and we now have, 'Shopping Cart Races' which seemed a bit different compared to the other tracks, it's still good, but it had a bit of a different sound and vibe to it, which I really like, as I love being able to tell tracks apart. The vocals are quieter on this track, but the lyrics go hard enough on this track, and it still packs the same sort of punch we've seen on the previous tracks. 

The last track is 'Can't Help Feel Like A Stranger (Acoustic)' and this is not my favourite track on the EP, but I've said this in previous posts, about how my brain struggles to understand and process acoustic tracks on EP's that aren't all acoustic. I still really like the track though, and I think it's a decent track. I quite like it, but it's just the contrast between this track and the previous track. Obviously, this is an acoustic of an already release track, but yeah, I have very mixed feelings about this track. I like it though, I do like it. I think it's quite a nice track. 

Overall, I quite like this EP, and I wasn't expecting to actually enjoy this EP like I did! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is, but I'm really happy about that. I think it's a great EP that still packs a punch! Would highly recommend it! When it comes to rating, I'd give it 4 out of 5 lemons. I really did enjoy this EP though, and it is definitely something I'm going to listen to a decent amount!

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
