The Young & Restless – Family Values (Single Review)

Northamptonshire Pop-punk act is back, with a new single titled ‘Family Values’ and what a cracking song it is! Everything that they’ve done has helped them to improve, and just get better and better. This song particularly captures all the earlier aspects of pop-punk, whilst continuing to maintain some traits of the new era of pop punk!

It’s a very different style to which they have portrayed in their earlier releases, but you can totally grasp that they have actually molded into what could only be described as; their new sound, of which I think suits them perfectly.

It’s always intriguing when a band loses their main vocalist, but I really feel that Ali Morrison & Rob Hardy has truly stepped up to the plate, and brought something very new to their sound. Of which I honestly feel was necessary, before they became stale. Family Values alone is something that has actually made me feel a spark of excitement for more of their new music. Hopefully, they can keep this hype going, and will not disappoint me now.

Family Values is released on Friday 22nd June, and you’d be crazy to miss out from listening to this track.

The Five Hundred – Smoke And Mirrors (Single Review)

‘The Five Hundred’ is definitely one band that everyone needs to get behind, and it seems that they just continue getting better and better! Smoke and Mirrors; their most recent single, is possibly the best song of their’s that I have had the pleasure of hearing from them!

The Long Branch Records guys were very clever in choosing this band, because they have an extremely bright future ahead of them, and this single just solidifies it more; in preparation for their album to drop on August 17th.

If you’ve never heard of them, then why not? I promise you that you’re missing out on something special, especially if you’ve not had the chance to see them perform in a live environment. They have put a lot of atmosphere in this song, and the switch between clean and unclean vocals really sets them a tier above most bands of this genre. Catchy chords also add to make it something quite unique, to which I just can’t help but bang my head throughout the whole of this track!

I feel that this could be the start of a very bright future for them with the release of their album on August 17th, of which I am truly excited for; this song absolutely slays from start to finish.
