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!

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
