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 guitar, the bass, everything about this track is decent. I cannot fault this track, it's just as good as Punchlines, and it's got those nice tempo changing breakdowns in it, and that just wins me over automatically. 

I think this is a truly spectacular track and one that you should definitely check out if you like pop-punk especially early 2000's pop-punk! This track doesn't have that overly refined feel to it, that a lot of modern pop-punk tracks have, and I prefer the rougher/less refined feel compared to the overly refined sound. I think this is a great track and one that I'd highly recommend checking it out. I love the chorus to this track, it just gives me that juicy serotonin. 

Overall, this is a decent track, it's very similar to Punchlines, but it does have its own unique sound. I like this track a lot, and it's just as good as Punchlines. I'd have to give this track a solid 5 out of 5 lemons again! It's just an incredible track and Keep This Up are proving to be an incredible band and one that we need to pay close attention to, because they have so much potential and talent! I cannot recommend going and checking this track out enough! Honestly, please go check this track out and show the lovely lot in Keep This Up some love and support!

Introducing: Feel Something

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm back doing an introducing post! It feels like it's been a long time since I last did one of these! Fun fact, about a month ago Jamie messaged me but it went into my spam folder on Messenger so I didn't get the message until a couple of days ago, however, a week or so ago Aaron messaged me on Messenger, and it went into my main inbox. I booked Aaron in back when he messaged me, and when I found Jamie's message I booked him in too, however, yesterday when I was coming to do the prep work for this post, I realised, both Aaron and Jamie are in the same band... this seems like the sort of thing I should have noticed at the time, but either way, thanks to Jamie and Aaron for reaching out! Thank you to you both for trusting me enough to talk about your band! So, let's not ramble anymore and let's talk about Feel Something!  Feel Something are a pop-punk/emo band from Chesire, UK. The band consists of:  Aaron Ross - Vocals J

A Million Times Before by Segarra

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm featuring a new band... finally! Today we're talking about Segarra, a band based in the East Midlands, and we all know, Notts, Derby and Leicester bands have a very strong place in my heart. I adore them. I love them all, well the nice ones anyway. Pretty much, if you're a local band to me, and you're nice then I probably love you. Now, I've been aware of Segarra for a while now, I've seen them on lineups and things like that, but I'd never really paid that much attention to them. Until the other day when I got a lovely message off them asking if I'd be alright doing some press for them. I said yes, because well, I love supporting as many small bands as I can. So, today, Friday the 3rd of September 2021, Segarra released their 3rd single, A Million Times Before. That's the main point of this post, but, I'm just going to do a mini introduction to them beforehand.  Segarra are a band based in the East M

Introducing: The Galacticas

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! This post was supposed to happen last week, but if you missed the memo I've been recovering from a dislocated shoulder so it's been pretty difficult getting content out. However, I'm back! I'm doing this post finally! So, today we're going to be doing a bit of an introducing post to The Galacticas. Anthony messaged me at the end of last month and sent his band in as a submission. Funnily enough, without even releasing, I've had The Galacticas on the Small Band Appreciate playlist for months now! Anyway, let's get into talking about The Galacticas.  The Galacticas are a three-piece, pop-punk band from the states.  The band consists of:  Anthony Janicki - Vocals and Guitar Will Cowan - Drummer Mark Ferguson - Bass and Backing Vocals The Galacticas have a lot of releases for a small band, and too many for me to put into one post. But they are a band with a lot of potential and talent. Although they aren't my favourite band
