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!

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
