The Great Divide by Without Andrew

 


Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about Without Andrew and their new album. I reviewed one of the tracks off the Album the other week, and No Way Out really impressed me. So, of course, I was pretty hyped for this album to come out. 

This is an album that makes a statement. This is an angsty, politically fueled album that packs a punch, and knows exactly what it's doing whilst showcasing Without Andrew's true talent and potential. From start to finish this album is phenomenal. It starts off with the intro we heard on the single version of No Way Out, which, I was a really big fan of, as I love spoken intros and the fact this album has many elements of political anguish I feel the intro was very fitting.  

I really like this album, there are some incredible songs such as my personal favourite Their System Don't Work For Us, I love the energy on that track, and for me, that is one of the stand out tracks. That being said, every track on this album is solid, and I don't think there's one bad song. 

It's an album that even manages to leave a great impression on me, as the opening and closing tracks of the album are solid! Such an insane album, and from start to finish, all nearly 34 minutes are pure audible bliss. 

The album has a great variety of hard-hitting tracks, with tempo changes throughout the album. Although a lot of the tracks have the same sort of feel about them, they're all equally distinguishable. I love this album, and, I'm super impressed with how great of a job Without Andrew have done on it. 

From Don't Trust A Tory, Stop and Search and Doom Scrolling, every track is surreal! 

I love the intro to some of the tracks on this album such as Stop and Search, that intro is incredible! This is an incredible album, and it's so refreshing hearing an album like The Great Divide, it's definitely in the running for album of the year this year, and I cannot recommend you going and giving this album a listen enough! 

Overall, I'd have to give The Great Divide a solid 5 out of 5 lemons. This is an incredible album, and the political connotations on this album are spot on, and the fact that on some tracks it's nostalgic in sound, as it reminds you of early 2000's pop-punk and punk-rock. This is a truly impressive album and one you definitely need to go and check out! Just spare 34 minutes, listen to the album, listen to the talent and listen to the lyrics. This is an impressive album, and one I'm incredibly impressed with.

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
