King Gizz, step over plahleaaaase. This is where the real show is at. The harmony in the chorus gave me goosebumps. I love The Empty Threats endlessly, what a solid band. Keep bringing those goods and those ridiculously good gigs xx

I noticed in the tags on your artist profile you had, "Breakdown" listed and you couldn't be anymore true.

Remember the girls screaming over NSYNC and Backstreet Boys? Well, they're fangirling over Up Late now. This is huge. I'm surprised TikTok hasn't found this song yet and made you guys mega famous because that's the momentum behind this song.

This is so lush and dreamyyyy. It's a beautiful combination of emo, pop, and whatever Turnover like to describe themselves as. I could honestly get lost in those guitars, and wow, what a huge Pierre Bouvier-sounding chorus! Damn, I am such fan of this.

ARIES!! I've been waiting for this stunning debut for ages and I'm completely blown away. Moody, sultry, groovy, silky smooth, this track is a sexy 'stick it to 'em' anthem. Influences of early 00s RnB mixed with modern pop, joined with powerful vocal abilities in both lighter and darker shades, ARIES has this genre in the palm of her hand and easily takes the crown.

ARIES!! I've been waiting for this stunning debut for ages and I'm completely blown away. Moody, sultry, groovy, silky smooth, this track is a sexy 'stick it to 'em' anthem. Influences of early 00s RnB mixed with modern pop, joined with powerful vocal abilities in both lighter and darker shades, ARIES has this genre in the palm of her hand and easily takes the crown. The synth parts plus the keys really compliment the melody and the many vocal layers that seamlessly flow through the song are perfect. Can't wait for more!

The evolution of this band is incredible. Each song SODA drops gets better and better as they master their craft and find the sweet spot and they are well and truly there.

The evolution of this band is incredible. Each song SODA drops gets better and better as they master their craft and find the sweet spot and they are well and truly there. Muddy Waters is this big blend of modern pop from bands such as The 1975 shown in the catchy melodies, combined with alt-rock influences like Nothing But Thieves and Jeff Buckley in the huge & full instrumentals, moving bass lines and neatly placed guitar licks. All the parts work in this synergistic harmony to create a grand song like no other. And I love the ending, like your own take of Gang of Youths. Favourite release so far!

God, I love this band. Such a lyrically descriptive and mood setting track. The guitar part in the pre-chorus had me jamming out before going straight back to vibing to the chorus. Is there anything Neon Tetra can't do?

I've found a brand new metalcore band to play their discography on repeat, over and over again.

I've found a brand new metalcore band to play their discography on repeat, over and over again. Starting soft and graceful, Copacetic highlights Crooked Royals' softer side before getting right into business with heavy breakdowns, soaring vocals, djenty goodness, anthemic choruses, spacious yet full sounding bridges. For fans of Polaris, Periphery and Northlane, Crooked Royals won't disappoint and easily keep up with the punches of these heavyweights. Seriously impressed and obsessed.

This makes me want to ride a booster rocket shopping trolley wearing a flaming hot cheetos mascot suit and ride my way to Pizza Planet from Toy Story. It's thrilling, it's funky and I'm just wanting to be apart of the pit listening to this. I'm obsessed with the charisma!! It honestly feels like you guys made a musical 3d POP out picture book!
