Golden Hour, Endless by BrunchBox


Another day, and yet another blog post! Now, if you remember a few weeks back I spoke about a band called BrunchBox, and did a review of their track Palace, well, last week they went and dropped an EP, the great thing about this EP though, is the fact it's 10 tracks long! That's insane, and something you don't see often! I did quite like their previous tracks, which the recent singles are on this EP. So, without waffling on, let's just get straight into talking about the tracks on this EP. 

The first track on the EP is, Day, which has a listening time of just over a minute and a half, making it one of the shortest on the album, but it still packs a punch. It's the perfect opening track for the EP, as it sets the tone, and it's not an overly intense track, but one that has a nice build-up within it. It's actually a lot better of an opening track than I expected, and I actually quite like it. I think its placement on the EP is perfect, and it's a well-done intro track. 

The second track on the EP is Dreaming, this was one of the singles off of the EP, and the fact that Day blends perfectly in with Dreaming is great. I really like that, also love that the two titles work together. As, this isn't necessarily a new song to me, I can't tell you how it makes me feel on first listening, but I love this track, the vocals are great, the guitar, the drums, everything about this track is a big yes from me. It's enjoyable to listen to. 

Up next we have, Skyline, which again, was another single off the EP, I'm familiar with this track already, but I still love it, if not as much then more than I did when I first heard it. It's got such a great vibe to it, it's engaging to listen to, and it's one of those tracks you want to listen to repeatedly. I love this track, I think it's incredible. It blends well from the previous track as well, which I think, in my opinion, makes any release more enjoyable to listen to when tracks just blend together so well. 

Track four is Sun/Burbank, again, it blends really well from the previous track, Skyline closes to silence, Sun/Burbank builds up from silence and I love that. I love the vibes of this track, I think it's actually such a nice track to listen to, and it's a slower track, a softer, track, but I really like it. It just makes you feel good. Although I'm someone that much prefers a louder track, I can appreciate this track. 

Next is, Ocean, this track was released back in 2018, so, again, not a new track to me, but one I can still enjoy. It isn't my favourite track on the EP, but I still like it. I think it's got a nice little beat to it, and there are some elements of the track that really impress me. I like this track, but it's not my favourite. 

Then we move onto Flyover, another track that was released previously, therefore it's not new to me. I like it, I don't love it, but it probably ranks around the middle for me. I like it, and it gives me such good vibes from the track, it just sounds great, and enjoyable. There's some great elements in this track, and I think it's a pretty enjoyable track to listen to. 

Now, we have Skyline (Reprise), shorter than the original, but still just as impactful. I much prefer the original of Skyline, but saying that, on a day when I'm wanting those softer tracks, I would probably reach for this track. If I'd never known the original, I'd probably tell you just how much I love this, but because I know the original, it's hard to judge it. I like it though, I think it's a beautiful track, and taken on its own, it's incredible. It's beautiful, if I want slower, softer tracks, this is what I want. 

We then have, The Pittsburgh Interlude, which as nice as this track is, we all know I am not the biggest fan of interludes, but, this is one of the better ones I've heard as it does have vocals on it. However, it still doesn't cut it for me. 

Second, to last we have Palace, I did a full review of this track, and I really like it. I probably like it more now than I did when I first reviewed it. I like this track, it's cool, it's got good vibes, it sounds happy and positive, it just does something for me. I like it a lot, it's one of my favourite tracks off the EP. 

The last track is Outroduction, and let me just say, that title is enough to win me over, the intro is also enough to win me over. I'm a big fan of this track. The beat on this track, this is possibly my favourite BrunchBox track. Actually, there's no possibility about it, this track is everything! This is a work of art, this is the track that I'm going to obsess over. This is the track, that has won me over. I always say an incredible intro and outro tracks are what leave a lasting impression on me, and this track is enough to leave a good impression in my mind about this EP. I love this track, it is everything I could want from a BrunchBox track and more. 

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this EP. There are some tracks I could take or leave them, but then there's some that have completely won me over. It's a good EP, and I love the range and length of this release too! I'd have to give it a solid 4 out of 5 lemons. I'm pretty impressed with it, and it's good. If you haven't heard it already, then go and check it out and see what you think of 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
