Turn Up The Music by Future Radio


Another day, another new band featuring on the blog. Today we're talking about Future Radio, and their latest single Turn Up The Music. Now, this track is not a new track, as it was released on their album which was put out last year, but it is the newest single, and the final single from the album. 

Turn Up The Music was put out as a single last week, and when I got the email from Future Radio, asking if I'd do some coverage, I didn't know what to expect from the track. It's the first I'd ever heard of Future Radio, so I didn't know if it was going to be good or not. 

The intro had me a little confused, I didn't really know what direction this was going in, and I was a bit sceptical of what this release was going to sound like. When the vocals kicked in, the direction of the song became clear. Now, this is unlike anything I've heard recently, and it's unlike anything I can think of. It's not bad, but it's got a bit of a different vibe to what I was expecting, and to what I'm used to listening to. 

The verses don't grab my attention, and I feel a little indifferent about the track. I don't dislike it, but I'm not in love with it. I like the chorus, and there are some really nice lyrics in the song, so I can't fault it there. There's plenty of depth within the sound, and Future Radio are actually really talented, like the guitar solos in the track are extraordinary. I can really appreciate so many of the elements within the track, but I personally, am not the biggest fan of the sound. I still like it, I think it's quite catchy, it's pretty nice and easy to listen to. It's one of those songs, that maybe I wouldn't reach for a lot, but if it came on I wouldn't skip it. That's nothing against the band, it's just personal preference. It's a decent enough song though, and I can see the chorus getting stuck in my head because it's really catchy. 

It's a mixture of rock, folk, rap and punk, and I think it's the fixture of all those different genres together that my brain can't wrap itself around. I'm not against it, and I can see people really liking this. I think if you're willing to give it a try and see what you think of it, then please do. I know people that would really like this, and it's a very unique sound on the track. Again, not against it, I like it. I just don't love it. I don't know what the song is missing for me to love it, but there's something. I do like the track though, and the more I listen to it the more it grows on me, the more my brain can process the fusion. 

Overall, I'd give it a 4 out of 5 lemons, I like it, there's just something missing from it to win me over. But, that's just personal preference. Go check it out, and see if you dig it because this might be the track for you!

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'.
