Up and Away by High Wire


Welcome back to the blog again, today I'm going to be talking about High Wire's latest single Up and Away, now although I've never done a review on High Wire before, I have mentioned them in previous posts. They're an incredible band, and I am well and truly obsessed with their music. They are incredibly talented and they really do pack a punch, and I would say they're one of the small pop-punk bands to watch out for, because they have so much potential to go places! So, if you've never heard of them before, please go check them out because, I can almost guarantee that if you're a pop-punk fan you'll be impressed. I will also, be bringing you a review of the new EP (that drops tomorrow) next week! 

Anyway, enough rambling, let's talk about Up and Away. 

I knew this was going to be a belter of a track because High Wire are really good at making incredible tracks, and just like their other recent singles, it is incredibly catchy. The chorus has been stuck in my head since release, I find myself going about my daily life singing "Look at you go, up and away". I also really fucking love the intro to this track, intros like voice messages, and recordings just hit the spot for me. The lyrics on this track are also incredible, I love that. To be honest, there's not one element on this track that I dislike. I think this track is incredible, it hits the spot for me, and it packs a punch. It's a song I would love to lose my shit to, but sadly, High Wire are American and I'm British, but never say never yeah? Honestly, though, this track is everything! 

It's super engaging to listen to, and it's so catchy! I actually cannot process just how great this track is, it really is incredible! I know that I love most tracks High Wire put out, and out of the already releases tracks off the album, I think they're all insane, and this one is no exception to that. I don't think I could pick a favourite, but I would say, I prefer this track to some of the previous tracks, but I still love them all so much! This is just such a surreal track, I cannot process how High Wire can put out tracks like this, that are super catchy, incredible, got a great beat to them, and are just some of the best tracks out there, and aren't one of the biggest bands in the scene. High Wire definitely deserves more love and support, because they are surreal! 

Overall, I am blown away by this track. Up and Away is an incredible track that really does pack a punch! I cannot recommend checking it out enough, and get yourself hyped for the EP dropping tomorrow. As I said, I will be posting a review of the EP next week, and I'm super hyped for it! W

When it comes to the rating of Up and Away, I think it comes as no shock, that I'm giving it a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! I'd give it a solid 6 out of 5 lemons if people accepted thas a real rating, but honestly, this song is everything! I'm obsessed! High Wire are incredible!

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track!
