Skully and Ted’s Bogus Journey by The Whether Channel

 


Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be featuring The Whether Channel again, as a few weeks back they released their new EP, Skully and Ted’s Bogus Journey. 


I do have pretty decent expectations for this EP, because their previous EP was incredible! 


The EP starts with Can’t Help but Feel Like a Stranger. This has a softer sort of vibe compared to a lot of the other tracks we’ve heard from The Whether Channel. It’s a great track, and I love the tempo change between the verse and chorus. Although not a major change, it’s still noticeable and something I do appreciate. I think it’s a nice song, maybe not something I would continually reach for just because most of the time I do like faster tracks, but it’s still a belter of a track! 


The second track is Capacitance. This has a similar vibe to the previous track, the vocals give me blink-182 vibes, and I do like this track. Again, this may not be a track I’d reach for constantly, but this is still a good track and I love the vibe of this track. I think there’s so many beautiful elements within this track, and it’s definitely one worth checking it out! It’s decent and I’m a big fan of this track. I think I prefer this track to the last, and actually, although maybe not a daily rotation track, it’s one I could definitely put in weekly rotation. The tempo changes within this track are great, and really enticing and I really do rate this track. 


The first track, is titled For Lack Of. Which has a spoken intro, which I think by now, we all know I really love. This is a very soft and slow track, this is a decent enough track. It had some subtle tempo changes within it, and it’s an alright track. Definitely not my favourite track, but it’s one that I can still appreciate. This track was quite long with a listening time the tracks up nearly a 3rd of the EP’s entire length. Therefore, for me to only have my attention gripped for the last minute or so, I was a bit lacklustre but that is personal preference. It’s still a good song, but that, for me, let’s it down. 


The second to last track is Decadence. This is a great contrasting track from the previous track. This packs a decent enough punch, and is one of my favourite tracks on the EP! It’s a decent track, it’s got a great vibe to it, and it’s really enjoyable to listen to. It’s engaging, and just a generally decent track to listen to. 


The final track is There is No Body Under That Garden Officer. This has a heavier vibe to the previous tracks on the EP, and is a stand out track. This is possibly my favourite track on the EP, and I quite like how the EP has started slow and soft, but ended up with a faster pace and a heavier vibe. This change was evident on track 3 as we saw the song start soft and slow and end with a punch. This is a decent track, and one that I really enjoy. 


Overall, I’d give the EP a 4 out of 5 lemons. I like it, it’s decent. I do think I prefer the previous EP, but I do still enjoy this EP and there’s some incredible tracks on it. I’d recommend going and checking it out and it is a decent EP. It’s well worth a listen!

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
