Employed by Lewis Kelly


Welcome/welcome back to the blog! I'm finally back, after nearly a week of a well-needed break. I'm back again, to talk about the incredible Lewis Kelly, and his new track Employed. 

Now, if you're already familiar with Lewis Kelly then you'll know that 1. he's an absolute legend, and 2. he has a song titled 'Unemployed' that was the first song we ever reviewed from Lewis Kelly, and it's one that still to this day, is one of the best tracks he's released. However, he's released Unemployed 2.0 now, titled Employed. A very fitting title and I love that there's a continuation to one of his best tracks. 

Employed, has the same sort of vibe that Unemployed had, and it's just got that same, incredible feel to it that Unemployed had. The vocals on this track are exceptional. I love the way this track makes me feel, and it's just got such a great vibe to it. I love the lyrics to it, the sound, the vocals, the whole track just gets a big yes from me. I think this is a surreal track. Although Unemployed will always have a special place in my heart, Employed is one hell of a track, and I'm really impressed with this track. 

Now, yes, we are used to me being blown away by tempo changes, but the whole vibe of Lewis Kelly's tracks, isn't the sort of tracks you get the big tempo changes, and breakdowns on, but there's a few subtle ones, and I really like this track. Although, Posty and Unemployed will continue to be my favourite Lewis Kelly tracks, Employed is making its way into my top 3 I think. It's definitely a track that grows on you the more you listen to it, and I'm really impressed with everything about this track. 

Overall, I'd give Employed a 5 out of 5 lemons. It's a great track, and I'd highly recommend going and checking it out, if you like Lewis Kelly, you like lo-fi pop or if you just want to see what the hype about Lewis Kelly is about. It's well worth a listen, and I would highly recommend showing it some love and support!

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
