Dancing Alone (Acoustic) by Kid Amelia


Welcome back to the blog yet again! Today we're talking about Kid Amelia's latest release. I have mentioned Kid Amelia on the blog before, but for anybody who wasn't around then or has forgotten, Kid Amelia are an alt/indie rock band from Nottingham. 

Dancing Alone, as you may expect is not a new track, the song itself was their last single, and now they've released the acoustic version of the track. Now, I think we all know that I tend to not be the biggest fan of re-releases, acoustic versions and remixes of tracks, but that's my personal preference.

Now, I have heard Dancing Alone before, but I haven't heard it in a while, therefore, I'm a bit more hopeful about enjoying this track. I tend to find acoustic versions of tracks never live up to the original, but I have a lot of faith in Kid Amelia changing my mind. 

Now, straight off, from the intro alone, I had faith in this track, because it wasn't just a plain, simple, acoustic track. When the vocals kicked it, it confirmed that I was right to have faith in this track, because it does so much more than a normal acoustic version of a track would. Of course, this is not the original, but for an acoustic track, this is pretty impressive. I like how it's a lot more refined than a lot of other acoustic tracks. 

The vocals on this track are phenomenal, I'd be concerned if the vocals didn't stand out to me on an acoustic track, but I liked the vocals so much more than I expected, and I like this track a lot more than expected. I didn't have the highest of hopes, but I would genuinely reach for this acoustic track a fair amount, I would choose to listen to this. I really like it, I think it's a great track, it's a decent acoustic track, and it does do the original justice. I'm impressed, I'm a lot more impressed than I expected to be and I really like this track. 

Overall, I'd give this track a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, because, I'm actually really impressed with it and as acoustic tracks go, this is an incredible one! I love this, I think it's great, and it's equally as good as the original just in a different way. I love this track, and I'd highly recommend going and checking it out, because it's really good! I'm thoroughly impressed with it, and I can imagine others would be too. So, please, go check out the acoustic of Dancing Alone by Kid Amelia, and show it some love if you like it!

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
