Rose Tinted Glasses by Zak Fox

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Zak Fox and his debut EP Rose Tinted Glasses! Now, I've featured Zak Fox before, as I've reviewed his previous singles, but now he's decided to treat us to an EP! 

One of my favourite things about this EP is that although it's 4 tracks (plus an instrumental) neither of the tracks are ones that have been released previously. 

The EP opens with 15, this track gives me the same sort of vibes as Nice To See Ya.. did, but that's not a bad thing. I love the tempo of this track and the whole vibe of it. It's got a nice beat to it, and it's got a really cool vibe to it, it's a decent track, and that tempo change in the last minute of the song, is a nice little touch, it's a decent track, and a decent opening track. I'm pretty impressed with this track. 

The next track is the title track, Rose Tinted Glasses. I love the vibe of this track, more than any of the other previous tracks released by Zak, and that's saying something. It's still similar enough, to be a Zak Fox track, but it has a bit of an edge to it, it's got something to make it stand out from the rest. I'm really impressed with this track, and there are so many nice elements in the track to keep me engaged, and I think it's a pretty decent track. This may be one of my favourite tracks Zak has released. 

The third track is, The Way I Want To, which again, has a different vibe to it, whilst still sounding like a Zak Fox track. This is a slower track, it's not as bouncy or as intense as the other tracks we've heard from Zak, but it's still a good track. It's got a nice vibe to it, and it's a generally enjoyable track to listen to. It's something I can easily listen to without getting bored, and it's a decent track. This is a stand out track for me, and I'm really impressed with it. It's got a great vibe to it, and it's engaging to listen to. 

The final proper song is My Heina. This is another track with a different feel to it, but that's a good thing, as I like to be able to tell the difference between tracks. I love this track, and the way it makes me feel. It's got a nice beat to it, and it's a little faster in pace than the previous tracks, and it packs a bit more of a punch. It's a cool track, and I really like the vibe of it. It's a decent track and one that I really like. It's a classic Zak track, but it's got that edge to it, that makes it stand out, which seems to be the common theme with this EP. 

The final track on the album is an instrumental titled, sadboi. We all know my opinion on instrumentals, really not a fan of instrumentals. I get bored listening to them. However, I will say, as a final track on an EP, it's alright. It's not my favourite thing in the world, but it didn't go on for an excessive period of time, and I liked the transition from the end of the instrumental back to the start of the EP again. It's alright. 

Overall, this is a pretty solid EP. It's decent, and it's got some incredible stand out tracks on it, and it's an EP I would recommend checking out. Zak is incredibly talented, and this EP is proof of that. I think this is decent, and I'd give it a 5 out of 5 lemons. I know, I'm giving an EP with an instrumental a 5 out of 5. Shocking, but it's not a bad instrumental, it passed pretty quickly and it wasn't too dull or boring, so yeah, I'd recommend this EP. Definitely worth checking out!

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
