Introducing: Rich Kid Problems


Disclaimer: I do not own this photo, I was just sent it by the band to include in this post.

Welcome back to another instalment of me talking about bands! Today I'm going to be introducing you to Rich Kid Problems, we're going to look at the tracks they already have out, and seeing how good they are. I'll be telling you who's who and if I think they're worth you giving them a shot.

Rich Kid Problems are a pop-punk band from Morecombe, England. 

The band consists of; 

- Rachael Walsh on Vocals
- Ellis Shepherd on Bass
- Nathan Denny on Guitar
- Adam Murphy-Jackson on Guitar
- Marc Holland on Drums

For Fans Of; Stand Atlantic, Paramore, Royal Blood, Fall Out Boy, Blondie, Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud and All Time Low. 

So, Rich Kid Problems have 5 tracks out currently. They have Front Garden as a single and then an EP titled Place Crash on a Sunday. Due to, Front Garden being on the EP too, I'm just going to talk about the track as part of the EP. 

Place Crash on a Sunday opens with 'This Song' and straight off, I'm obsessed with this track. I love the vibes of this track, the vocals, the guitar, the drums, the bass, the tempo changes within the track, even the lyrics. This is one hell of a track, and I fucking love it! I really didn't know what to expect, and I certainly didn't expect it to be on this level! This is incredible! Judging the band on just this track, I think they're going to become a personal favourite. I love this track so much, it's such an incredibly strong opening track and I can't process how they could be this good and not have so many more listeners! 

The second track is 'Runaway' which has an early 2000's pop-punk vibe to it, and I'm 100% here for that! The vocals again are incredibly impressive, and I cannot process how great this track is! I think this is an incredibly catchy song, and the lyrics are hard hitting. I love this track! That's two solid tracks, so I'm already really impressed with Rich Kid Problems and this EP. It's such a great track, that packs a punch! I'm 100% here for this sound! 

Next up we have 'Aliens' which doesn't have the same level of energy as the previous track, but it still has a lot of energy. This is just a little toned down. It's still an energetic song, and I actually really like this one too. The whole vibe of this track is a big yes from me. I think this has such a cool vibe to it, and it's got the tempo changes in it that we all know I desire in tracks. I'm pretty impressed. I'm loving this EP so far. 

Second to last, we have 'Front Garden' which was releases as a single as well as on the EP, this is a bit more toned down the other tracks on the EP, it doesn't sound out of place though, and it certainly still has a cool vibe to it. Although, I prefer the tempo on the other tracks, I think this is an incredible track still, and it's nice for their to be a bit more a 2013 Paramore track on the album rather than every song sounding the exact same. So far, there hasn't been one dud track, and I'm really love this. 

The last track on the EP is 'Electric Blue' which is a softer track. It's the softest track on the album, and it's stand out element is the acoustic guitar. This has some elements in there that take away from the acoustic elements which I definitely appreciate as I'm not known to be the biggest fan of acoustics, but this is a decent track. It's got some great lyrics to it, and I still love the vocals on it. I think it's got such a nice vibe to it, and it's one of those tracks that just feels warm. I like this track, I don't love it, but I do like it. 

Overall, I'm actually pretty impressed with what I'm hearing from Rich Kid Problems, they seem like such an incredible band, with an incredible range of tracks. They know how to make songs for their style, and they do it well. Again, I'm pretty impressed, and I think I'm going to have to keep a close eye on Rich Kid Problems and what they're doing, because this EP seems so promising, so yeah, really impressed and I'd highly recommend you going and checking them out, and showing them some love and support. They seem pretty nice, and I have to give them a 5 out of 5 lemon rating, because they're that good! They definitely have potential to be one of my favourite small bands!

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
