Failures, Vol:2 by My Latest Failure


Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm talking about a band I have spoken about before, but it's been a while! Today we're talking about My Latest Failure. Now, yes, I was supposed to review the singles that came out off the EP, but life was very hectic and both Chris and myself agreed that instead of reviewing the singles, I'd come and give you a full EP review when it dropped! 

On Friday (30th April) My Latest Failure released their section EP, titled Failures, Vol:2, this is the follow-up EP to their debut EP, Failures, Vol:1. Just like the first EP, it consists of 4 tracks and has a listening time of less than 8 minutes. So, if you're someone that likes a shorter EP, or you want something you can finish quite quickly, then this could be the EP for you! 

To anybody who is unfamiliar, My Latest Failure is a punk band with heavy hardcore influences. They're an incredible band, and they're great at what they do. If you are a fan of heavier tracks, and you want something that's pretty intense, then you may want to give My Latest Failure a chance! 

The first track on the EP is, Self Reflection, which has a listening time of 42 seconds making it the shortest track on the EP. However, just because it's a short track doesn't mean it's not a great track. Mainly an instrumental track with only one spoken line. Although we all know I don't really enjoy instrumental tracks, My Latest Failure are a band that always manages to keep my attention in an instrumental because they are punk with hardcore influences. They make shorter songs that always pack a punch. This track is no exception to that, and although mainly instrumental there are so many elements that I can focus on in order to maintain concentration, so well done on this one! 

The second track is It's Complicated. This is the longest track on the EP, with no overly long intros and the classic My Latest Failure sound. This is an incredible song, and I love it. Every part of this track is great, and I'm honestly a big fan of it. I love every element on this track, and I love the tempo change within the track as well, as we all know at this point, that tempo changes are the one thing I love most in a track. I love the vibe of this track, and I can't pick fault with it. Another great track. 

Voices is the third track on the EP, and it's another short track, that still manages to pack a punch. I love the whole vibe of this track, but I've thought that since it first came out. I think it's a great track, and although it was one of the singles so it's not a new song to me, it's still a great track and I prefer it now to when I first heard it. It's a great track, and there's nothing bad to say about it. It's catchy enough, it's loud, it's what you expect from My Latest Failure and it has those lyrics that some may relate to. 

The final track on the EP is Demons, again, this was a single, and it was the last single before the EP. It's a great track, it has that same sort of vibe as Voices did. It's an incredibly impactful song, and it really does pack the punch you expect from My Latest Failure. It's such a great track, and I love it. This is one of my favourite tracks off of this EP, and it's an overall decent track. Although, not a new song to me, it is a song that I love more now than I did back at release. 

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this EP. It's exactly as I expected it to be, there's plenty of tempo changes within each track, and it does a good enough job at holding my attention for the just shy of 8 minutes it lasts for. It's a great EP, and I'd have to give it a 5 out of 5 lemons. Would highly recommend checking it out, if you're a fan of your heavier punk, or you find yourself a fan of hardcore. Go give My Latest Failure a shot and see if you like them. They're a decent band, and this EP is incredible!

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
