Unbroken by RadioNot

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about another new artist to the blog! Honestly, so exciting talking to you about new artists! So, today we're talking about Unbroken by RadioNot. Now, Richard reached out to me a week or so ago, and asked me if I'd be up for featuring RadioNot, and you know I always try and accept every submission we get here, because, it's my life goal to support as many small bands as possible!  From the intro, I quite liked the feel of this track. It's definitely a lot poppier than some of the other artists we've featured recently, but I'm still a big fan of the sound. I like the whole feel of the track and it just gives nice pleasant vibes. This track does have little kicks of something special though like this track definitely packs a punch. I love the kick this track has to it, and I think it's just a pretty interesting track to listen to. It has that classic mainstream radio pop feel to it with th

Some Songs by Lovewell

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about a new band to the blog, Lovewell. Mark reached out to me a week or two ago and asked me if I'd be up for doing some content. I, of course, said yes! They dropped this EP today! Literally today the 30th of July. Which I mean, shocking that I'm doing content on release day, but anyway, I'm super hyped to be talking about this EP! So, Some Songs is a 3 track EP. I love that the listening time is under 10 minutes, so if you're doing a short car journey or just doing a quick task, you can play this EP whilst you do that. I like the convenience factor of this EP.  The first track is Sightseeing. This is a track they've released previously, but it's just such a nice feeling track. I don't exactly know why but it gives me Have Mercy sort of vibes. I think it's got a nice feel and vibe to it, it's got some beautiful vocals on the track, and I just think it's a nice, sort of warm

Now, Repeat After Me by Vampire Slumber Party

  Hey! Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Vampire Slumber Party again. Last week Yusuf released his latest single Now, Repeat After Me. Judging by the previous singles, I went into this track expecting to be a fan of it, as I think Vampire Slumber Party are incredible!  From the intro, I knew straight away that I was going to love this track. I knew instantly that this would be right up at the top of my favourite Vampire Slumber Party releases to date. This is fast-paced, it's really engaging to listen to, and it packs such a major punch. This is an incredible track and one that I really do love. I think it's surreal, it's just such a spectacular song, and I really do love it.  I don't think I could pick fault with any element of this track, Now, Repeat After Me truly is one of the best Vampire Slumber Party tracks, it's just such a great, engaging track to listen to. This is just such an incredible track, and really am in lo

Anniversaries by Senior Living

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Anniversaries by Senior Living. Senior Living is a punk/dream pop band from Albany, New York.  Not too long ago, Senior Living released a short album/long EP. The release consisted of 9 tracks and a listening time of just over 25 minutes.  The opening track is Carousel, this is a track that doesn't even last a minute and a half. Although this is a short song, it certainly packs a punch. It had a unique sound and feel to it, and as an intro track, I'm not mad at it. It's not a track I'm overly enamoured with, but it's decent enough. It's an alright track, but it doesn't blow my mind away.  The second track is Depression OG, which I mean big mood. This track sounds a bit more like my cup of tea, and it seems to pack a bit more a punch than the previous track. I think this is a highly relatable track, and one that I'd definitely listen to a fair bit. It has a rough, not so refined

Afternoon Superheroes by Elliot Mitchell

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I’m super excited to be talking about a new artist to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about Elliot Mitchell’s track Afternoon Superheroes.  Now, I didn’t really know what I was to expect going into this track, I didn’t know what vibe we were going for or if it was even going to be something I’d like. However, I was pleasantly surprised.  Afternoon Superheroes is actually a pretty catchy track, it’s got a cool feel to it, and it is something that I would actually reach for.    This has a pop-punk and like alt-rock sort of vibe to it. But I really like it, it’s actually a pretty incredible track. For a debut single, this is an especially strong track. Honestly, I think this is a decent track.  I like that it’s for a nice beat to it, and it’s just got a great feel to it. It’s actually a really good song, and I’m really impressed with the track. There’s not much I can really point fault at either, especially when this is a debut single. T

wish u would just give it back by Misplaced

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about another blog favourite again. Misplaced really are the gift that doesn't stop giving as they've dropped another new track! It doesn't seem like it was that long ago when they were dropping an EP, but they're back!  wish u would just give it back is an incredible track, but I mean, what do we expect from Misplaced? Misplaced just know how to make incredible tracks. This is quite a short track, with a listening time of just over 2 minutes. This isn't the classic pop-punk sound that we've heard from Misplaced a lot, this is more comparable to the last singles they've released. I will be honest and say that this isn't my favourite Misplaced track because fuck that, i'm alright and idk why i try still exist, but this is still a great track.  I love the feel of this track and I love hearing Misplaced experiment with their sound and band identity. I love that this is a different sort of track c

Perception by Charles Darling

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! We're back again with another new post, but this time we're going to be talking about the wonderful Charles Darling and his debut EP Perception. Now, I love Charles, he's a lovely person! We did a review of Electric Blue for him when he dropped that track, and of course, it was only fair that I made time to review his debut EP, which dropped on Friday! This EP does feature the timeless classic that is Electric Blue as well as 3 new tracks!  The EP opens with Think Too Much. This is very much the sort of track I would always expect to hear from Charles. I love this track, and I think it's got such a nice feel to it. It's very much a classic sound for Charles and one that really does compliment his voice. This is such a nice, light feeling track. This is a great song to listen to in the summer weather we've been having recently. I just love this track, and the whole feel of it is just so nice and refreshing. Although, it's a

Don't Count Me Out by Protect Your Heart

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! It feels weird that I'm uploading for another day in a row, but honestly, I am booked solid for a few weeks. We have a new blog post coming every day until potentially the end of August. Anyway, a week or so ago, I had a pretty large influx of views, and new followers because apparently someone recommended the blog in a networking group. I'm not complaining, but because of this, we have quite a few new submissions! I'm super hyped about it, because if you're a regular around here, then you know I'm always game for finding some new bands to support! So, today we're going to be talking about Don't Count Me Out by Protect Your Heart.  I went into Don't Count Me Out not knowing what to expect, I was told pop-punk and that's always good enough for me. From the intro alone, Protect Your Heart had managed to grab my attention. When the song properly kicked in with the vocals, I was in love. Don't Count Me Out is such an

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin

Complete You by Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm excited to be talking about Chunk! again. If you didn't already know, Chunk! are one of my all time favourite bands, like in my top 5 sort of thing. They're releasing a new album soon, and I'm super hyped for it! However, today we're here to talk about the latest single from the upcoming album. The latest single is titled Complete You, and if the previous singles are anything to go off, this has a lot of potential to be an incredible track!  Straight off the bat, I quite liked how the song sort of faded in, I really liked that. The first 30-40 seconds sound like the song is going to have a gradual build up throughout the track to a big breakdown or something similar to that, but by that 45 second mark my mind is blown. I like the tempo changes between the verses and the chorus. I love the way that AJ and Bert's vocals compliment each other so well on this track, and although, it wasn't as I originally expected it

Dead Friends by Clay J Gladstone

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we see the return of another blog favourite, this time it's Clay J Gladstone! I always have so much praise to give this band, because truly, they are magnificent. They are an incredible band with a lot of talent to bring to the table. They're one of those bands that constantly release bangers, yet don't seem to get anywhere near enough recognition.  Dead Friends is one of the darkest, grungiest, most emo tracks we've heard from Clay J Gladstone. This track has ultimate belter vibes, this is a track to lose your voice to. This is a track that deserves the same sort of reaction that Sorry got. Sorry was a spectacular song to scream at the top of your lungs and that's exactly what Dead Friends is too! This track is something else. This is one of my favourite Clay J Gladstone songs to date, and I cannot comprehend just how insane this track is. With a listening time of fewer than 3 minutes, this track doesn't lack anything.

Seventeen by Autumn Fires

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about a blog favourite, and a band that always seem to blow all expectations with their tracks, that band being, Autumn Fires! I love Autumn Fires, and they always blow my mind with every track they release, so I had to bring you a review of this track, because they really are a spectacular band.  Seventeen gives me Real Friends vibes, and it's just incredible. I love the whole feel and vibe of the track, and it has that incredibly, punchy feel to it that a lot of Autumn Fires tracks have. This track has a lot of energy in it, which isn't uncommon for Autumn Fires, but this just seems to pack a little more of a punch than some of the previous tracks. This is honestly a great track, and I'm well and truly in love with this track. It gives me big fuck you sort of vibes, and I live for that! I love the angst behind this track, and I think this is an incredible track in all respects. It's got incredibly

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

Can't Help Calling You by RAYGO BLOOM

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! It feels like forever since I was here talking to you about new music, but I'm back and we have a pretty packed few weeks ahead of us. So much content coming, new bands featuring all over the place, and lots of cool reviews to bring you! So, stay tuned for what's to come! Last week, RAYGO BLOOM released their track Can't Help Calling You, and after a few DM's with the band I was more than willing to do a review of the single, so here it is! This is what I think about Can't Help Calling You and if I think you should check it out.  I would like to start by saying, that stereotypically this isn't the sound that I feature a lot on the blog, as this has a softer vibe and a more acoustic sound to the track, however, this track just has something to it that I love.  I love the feel of this track, the whole vibe of it is just so nice and calming. It's such a beautiful track, the vocals really do compliment the sound of the track,
