Balance by Clay J Gladstone


Welcome/welcome back to the blog. Today we're featuring Clay J Gladstone for the first time. I've been a big fan of there's for a few months now, and Sorry will forever be one of the best songs I've ever heard. But today, we're talking about their newest single Balance, which was released yesterday (14th May). 

The intro didn't grip my attention in the same way as some of the previous tracks have. The intro verse was decent enough, and then when the chorus hit I was a massive fan of the track. I love the tempo changes between the verse and chorus. I love the whole vibe of this track, and the more I listen to it, and the further into the track I get, the more I enjoy it. It's a great track, and I'm pretty impressed with it. The vocals, the guitar, the drums, the bass, the lyrics, everything about this song is decent, and I really appreciate it. The intro to the track may have left me feeling slightly underwhelmed, but besides that, I'm a big fan of the track. I really like its rhythm, and there are so many incredible elements in the track that grip your attention. It's a generally impressive track, that packs a punch and does everything you could want and more. 

It's one of those songs that definitely grows on you and one that I can see myself falling in love with. I like this track, it's not my favourite Clay J Gladstone track, but it's one that I can definitely see myself loving over time. 

Overall, I'd give Balance 4 out of 5 lemons. I like this track, not completely in love with it, but it's still a great track, and one I know I'll come to love with time. Would highly recommend checking it out though!  If you haven't heard anything by Clay J Gladstone before, then I would highly recommend checking them out because they're insane!

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
