Ticket To Hell by Cambridge


Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm talking about Cambridge, I have mentioned Cambridge in some of the posts I've done before, but I've never specifically worked with them and produced a review of one of their tracks. However, on Friday (23rd April) they released a new track titled 'Ticket To Hell' and they were lovely enough to let me bring you a review of the track! Now, if you're unfamiliar, Cambridge is an Australian pop-punk band, and of course, that means I instantly love them because we all know, all small bands have my heart but, Australian, Scottish, and Notts bands instantly have my attention. I don't know what it is about them, but they just always seem to pack the punch and produce great music. Anyway, so we're here to talk about 'Ticket to Hell' and what I think of it! 

Now, I knew this track would be great because Cambridge never seems to disappoint, but I didn't expect to love this track as much as I do. 

The instrumental aspect of the intro wasn't overly long so of course, that is a big yes from me. That made the track instantly gaining my attention. The vocals kick in at around 13 seconds, and those vocals! The vocals are great, the drums are great, the guitar, the bass, the lyrics, everything about this track instantly won me over. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it just makes me feel something. 

The chorus on this track gets a big yes from me. The lyrics hit home, and I love how seamlessly the verses and chorus blend together. I love the beat of this track, the little tempo changes, and even the instrumental parts of this track, which is saying a lot because that's normally where my attention drops off, but not with this track, I think because there's so much going on within the track, and there's always an element to hold my attention, I like it more. I just love the energy of this track, it's insane. It's a belter of the track, and it's a hard-hitting track with that sound that just makes you want to scream the lyrics from the top of your lungs. The way this song makes me feel, and the love I have for it, makes me want to add it to my small band tattoos collection, it's just insane. I love this track and the whole vibe of it. I love it. It's insane, and if you've never heard of Cambridge before, of you're heard of them but never listened to them, then take this opportunity to listen to them. Ticket To Hell is one of those songs, that you just want to listen to constantly, and it's a track that could win you over and make you pay attention to Cambridge. 

Honestly, this is a surreal track. It's insane, the energy in it is next level. All elements of this track are insane, and it's just an incredible song. It's one of my favourite songs I've heard recently, and I cannot recommend you checking it out. Honestly, go check it out, and show it some love, and if you like Ticket To Hell, then go and check out their previous releases, because they're incredible! 

Overall, I am obsessed with this track, and I have to give it a 5 out of 5 lemons, I'd give it a 6 out of 5 lemons if people accepted that as a real rating. Honestly, it's great, please go check it out and show Cambridge the love and support they deserve.

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
