Be My Saturday by Sirocco


Hey! Welcome or welcome back to me rambling about bands again. Today I'm talking about Be My Saturday by Northern band Sirocco. I got an email a couple of weeks ago, with this submission, so here we are, we're here to talk about Be My Saturday. 

The only thing I knew before hearing this track was that Sirocco is indie rock. That's all I knew, and of course, I like indie rock so I could guess that I would find some enjoyment in the track, but to what degree was unknown. 

The intro had me a little confused to begin with, but then it went on for a little while longer and I could grasp the direction the song was going to go in. I like the beat of the song, and I like that it doesn't sound like a carbon copy of every other song in the genre. I actually quite like the vocals as well. I wouldn't say it's an overly refined sound, but it's a sound that suits the band, and the chorus is what really won me over. The verses weren't exactly hitting me and engaging me like I wished they would, they were good, but the chorus is where it's at! As I've said before, I believe a chorus should be the catchy bit, and they should be the bit that grabs your attention, so I can't say I'm disappointed with the tracks. In all honesty, I like the other verses just not the opening verse, it doesn't grab my attention like the rest of the song. However, that's on first impressions, and it could grow on me the more I listen to it. This is definitely a track that I am going to be playing on repeat, I think it's going to be a song that grows on me, and I can say that the more I listen to it, the more I can appreciate the track. I think it just wasn't what I was expecting, and that's my own fault for not expecting this sound. I would say it's more indie/alt-rock rather than being like a lot of the classic indie bands on the scene currently. 

I do quite like the track, and the chorus really did win me over. I think it's a decent song, and it's got quite a catchy chorus. I would recommend checking it out, and seeing if you like it, because I'm really impressed with it. Although, maybe not what I was expecting, it's still a decent track, and if you do like your indie/alt-rock bands then this could a great band for you to check out! I will be listening to Sirocco some more, and I will be listening to their discography. They seem like a decent band, and they seem pretty talented judging by this track alone. 

Overall, I'd give Be My Saturday 4 out of 5 lemons. I like this track, and it does grow on you the more you listen to it, so definitely go give it a listen and see what you think of it.

Empty Streets by Aim High

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! On today’s instalment of Grace rambles about small bands and their latest releases, we have Aim High with their latest single Empty Streets.   Now, we all know I’m a sucker for a good Aim High release, and they always put out belters of tracks!   This track features Driveways, it has a different vibe to previous tracks, but as we've spoken about before, Aim High tend to change their sound with each track, or nearly every track. Never drastic changes, but noticeable. This track is very unique, there's a lot of different tempo changes. There's a noticeable change between the verses and chorus, but it's a sound I'm here for. The bridge in the track is insane.  This is such a great track it's an impactful track. This is honestly a belter. This is such a surreal track, honestly a belter. This may not be my favourite track from Aim High but it's definitely one worth checking out and showing some love about. This is honestly such a

Pink Alligator by Those Without

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I’m super excited to be talking to you about Pink Alligator by Those Without. Now, Those Without are a band I’ve listened to for a few months and I’ve liked the releases they’ve put out. However, no previous track has got me as hyped as Pink Alligator did.   Knowing what sort of tracks Those Without put out, I was pretty excited for this release, and I had pretty decent expectations.   I want to start off by saying since this track was released, I have been listening to it constantly. Every time I get in the car I'm there putting it on repeat for my drive, everytime I go to listen to music, I'm going to be there listening to this track. I am well and truly obsessed with it. So, when I tell you that this song has blown my mind and really has beaten all expectations I had for it, I mean it.  Pink Alligator has an infectious beat to it, and it's one of the catchiest tracks to be released recently. The tempo changes between the verses a

A Spark To Ignite by Royals

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Royals again. Royals went and dropped a new EP on Friday, and I feel like it was something we all needed in our lives.  I  had pretty decent expectations for this EP judging by the 4 tracks we’ve already heard off the EP. I’ve done a full review of Worldwide Catastrophe and Jaded so I won’t be saying much about them, but I never reviewed Fair-Weather Friend and Out of Reach, so I will speak a little about them but probably not the same amount as Gone.   Anyway, the EP opens with Worldwide Catastrophe. This is an absolute belter of a track. This track is surreal. It packs a punch, it does everything you’d want it to do and more. It’s just insane. I absolutely love this track, I loved it when it first released and I love it all the same now. It’s a great song and one I still highly recommend!   The second track is Fair-Weather Friend. This was one of the first tracks released off this EP, and it is an incredibl
