Upcoming artists, older tunes and even the odd post about classical music. Don't be afraid to have a look and drop me in an message! Have a fab day, and love music with all your heart..
Absolutely love Young Guns. Their first album was so much heavier than I thought it would be when I heard Sons of Apathy and immediately fell in love them, but believe this was not a bad thing. I’ve been lucky enough to see them live at their own headline tour, and at a rock festival and both times were just MENTAL. If you like heavy rock gigs, mosh pits and more, then Young Guns are the band for you.
I honestly think this band deserves way more credit then they get, they just give me chills. I think All Our Kings Are Dead will be one of those albums that sticks with me forever, it is just SO GOOD.
Gustav Wood, Gus, is an amazing lyricist as well, just listen to the song ‘Stitches’. Beautiful lyrics for such a heavy band. So yes, check out Bones their new album, it is pretty damn amazing.
I can’t say how much I love this band, so I’m just going to stop and say listen to them. If you find this song a little heavy check out Stitches or if you want heavier go Elements.
Right, good then, Young Guns, Towers, up there.
(Although they did choose Lotus Flower for Radiohead, Uprising for Muse, Can’t Stand Me Now for The Libertines etc…
I mean, good songs, but definitely the more known ones.)
Do people like it then?
Where I am right now, it is 10 past 1 in the morning, and I really should be asleep but I just cannot resist writing and planning music covers at this time of the night, so I suppose it will be a late one. But here, if it is late where you are now, and your eyelids are feeling heavy, and you know you should be lie on your bed, with your mind finally feeling at rest after another day, listen to this song.
Just relax, enjoy, sleep, shhhhh.

I just came across it on my iTunes from some free mix tape esque album and it is beautiful. Definitely going to whip out the violin and acoustic and have a crack at this one.
”Ballad Of The Beaconsfield Miners” is a tribute to the miners involved in the mine collapse in Beaconsfield, Tasmania, Australia.
Song of the Day - It’s Not The End Of The World But I Can See It From Here, Lostprophets
A friend of mine reminded me how much I love Lostprophets and I had to go home and listen to a bit of their latest album “The Betrayed”, which to say the least, is killer. It’s hard rock, borderline screamo in some points, but believe me it’s good. I was going to put on “Next Stop Atro City” but Soundcloud couldn’t find it, so being the lazy person that I am, I chose INTEOTWBICSIFH. I love the guitar’s in this, and it is a real belter of a tune. Killer album. Killer track.
Song of the day - Mona Lisa, Dinosaur Pile Up
As soon as I heard “Barceloner” of their album “Growing Pains” on a track full of upcoming artists in Rock, I knew this band was going to be good, and bought their album as soon as it came out, in fact setting out a day so I would be able to buy it.
No money was wasted. The thing about Dinosaur Pile Up is that although they are amazing as a band, it is actually Matt Bigland (the singer, guitarist guy) who did the whole album, by himself. He recorded, wrote and went mental on every song.
If you are a fan of Foo Fighters and Nirvana (Also Matt Bigland is in love with Dave Grohl, but to be fair, why wouldn’t he be?) DPU are for u. This track Mona Lisa is one of their lighter songs, they are generally pretty heavy. They seem to be bringing grunge back, which is what I love about them.
Seriously, listen to them, they are fantastic.
