Over This by We Were Sharks

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about the brand new We Were Sharks track! This is their latest single off their upcoming album 'New Low'. Now, if you know me then you know We Were Sharks are one of my favourite bands, and their music has been the soundtrack to many different highs and lows in my life, however, a few weeks back they were lovely enough to give me permission to produce content on their album. I was intending to keep that hush for a bit longer, but Over This has just blown my mind that I couldn't not talk about this. Of course, this never influences my opinion, and most people know that I love We Were Sharks a lot anyway! 

So, let's get into talking about Over This. First off, this track is next level. If you haven't listened to it yet, then please go and do that right now! Anyway, this track really is extraordinary. It's got some great lines in it that have me going "Wow, same" but also getting me ready to feel like I can take on anything. We Were Sharks don't have a bad song in their discography, but this is possibly their best to date. This is one of those songs that you know when it's played live people are going to lose their shit to it. It has that level of energy, and the chorus goes so hard! 

One of my favourite things about Over This, is that although the entire song, is loud, energetic, anthemic, and intense, there's still a nice tempo change between the verses and chorus, and I love the build-up between the pre-chorus and the chorus. I love that! That wins me over! The vocals, the guitar, the bass, the drums, the lyrics, everything on this track is phenomenal! I can't even put it into words just how incredible this track is. This is the perfect pop-punk track, and it's instantly become an all-time favourite for me. It's insane. 

This song is one of the catchiest We Were Shark tracks out there, and out of the four singles we've had from New Low, this is my personal favourite. I love them all, but this one is just insane! It's got everything I look for and love in a track, and when they teased a clip of it, I knew I was going to like it, but I didn't expect it to be this good! This track has blown my mind, and I don't think any song is going to come close to this for a while. Over This has me even more excited for New Low to come out, and I really am impressed by what I'm hearing from the album so far, and Over This is just going to become THAT song for me. 

I cannot recommend you going and checking this track out enough, please, I cannot stress how much you NEED to listen to this track. If you're a fan of your pop-punk and you haven't heard Over This yet, then go and listen to it! Listen to it and see why I'm so obsessed with this track, and why I think you have to hear it. 

Overall, I have to give Over This a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! I want to give it 6 out of 5 lemons because it's that good! Honestly, this song is my ultimate hype song from now on, and this is one of those songs that if it comes on in the car, I do not care who you are, we do not skip this one! I couldn't be more impressed with this track if I tried, it really has beaten all expectations, and blown my mind! This track is everything! Honestly, Over This could be my song of the year!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
