Pvris – All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell | Review

PVRIS released their sophomore album ‘All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell’ towards the end of August this year. Singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘What’s Wrong’ really helped give fans a taste of what was to come, but the album really blew those expectations out of the water.

Picturesque – Back To Beautiful | Review

Despite having been a fan of Picturesque since first hearing ‘Just Exist’ a few years ago, ‘Back To Beautiful’ slipped under the radar for an embarrassingly long time. Picturesque blend post-hardcore, pop and rock in their impressive debut album, creating a unique sound helped by the mind-blowing vocal range of singer Kyle Hollis.

The Neighbourhood release EP ‘Hard’

In true The Neighbourhood fashion, the band have dropped a surprise EP ‘Hard’. This 5 track EP is the first release since their sophomore album ‘Wiped Out!’ and has been a long time coming. The Neighbourhood continue to develop their sound in unexpected ways, with the lyrics dealing with issues of fame following the success of ‘Sweater Weather’ and staying true to one’s self.

Neck Deep – The Peace and The Panic

Neck Deep have been building anticipation for their latest album ‘The Peace and The Panic’ for months with the release of some brilliant singles. Their evolution has truly shown what this band are made of, refining their sound further and really pushing the boundaries of genre. Whilst some fans have initially been unhappy with this change, it seems to me this is for the better.

Broadside – Paradise

Broadside’s new album ‘Paradise’ pushes the boundaries of genre. When I spoke to the band earlier this year, they suggested that this album would show Broadside in a new light and they weren’t wrong. The album features songs that wouldn’t have been out of place on ‘Old Bones’ and other songs that could easily be on mainstream radio. ‘Paradise’ has something for everyone, if you haven’t heard Broadside yet then I recommend you change that.

VAULTRY – Eulogy

After 30 seconds of the opening title track, I knew I would like this band. After hearing the heartbreaking background to this album I both loved and respected them. They have broken the mould of modern melodic alt-rock with their full-length album, Eulogy. An ode to a fallen friend, the record serves as a heartbreaking reflection on extreme loss and the grief that follows.

I Never Loved Before I Found You – Front Porch Step

Front Porch Step is back, with an album full of pain and apologies. His new album ‘I Never Loved Before I Found You’ is a definite move from the sound from his previous album; rather than his voice accompanied by a guitar we get a new, fuller sound. Every song on this album has a different message, all of them originating from pain, loss and hurt. I absolutely loved Aware (his previous album) because of the acoustic vibes and honest lyrics, which focused on break ups, cheating and the loss of his grandmother. It seems that Jake McElfresh has continued with this raw, honesty on this brilliant album.

Mansionz – Mansionz

This unique and crazily wild album has uprooted the music world. Mansionz is the musical project of Blackbear and Mike Posner and sees them collaborate with many other artists. This album is a sincere mismatch of heartfelt self criticism and lyrics that will leave you questioning everything. Importantly, it’s an album that finds its way to your heart no matter what music you enjoy.
