50 Word Single Reviews!
Frank Turner – Long Live The Queen
This song might become a ‘let’s remember our good friend who died too young after an illness’ classic. Frank Turner tells us a story about one of his friends dying and how the remaining group of friends cope. Very touching. Catch him on the Eurosonic Festival in Groningen next week.
Dead Kids – Into The Fire
A one riff, start to finish song. Video is very simple as well. It’s a catchy tune however by this band from London who have listened to the Clash a lot. But that can never be a bad thing can it? Shortest song of all the reviewed with just 2:02.
Emmy The Great – We Almost Had A Baby.
The Dead Kids listen to the Clash and Emmy likes Belle & Sebastian because this song, which has been out since November already, has that vibe. It’s a nice song with a story and a cute baby in the video plus a variety of hand puppets. The ending is sudden.
Deviation – Control
It took me a while to get this song but it might just crack our Top 23. Deviation has as much originality as… well, can’t think of anything right now but it’s not a lot. That doesn’t mean it’s bad though. I feel there’s more to come from these Dutchies.
