5 'Small' Bands You Must Check Out!

Hello there! 

Today, as I did last month, I want to change a little bit the script (shall I call it that way?) of this blog, like the stuff I write monthly, since I find it repetitive and that isn't cool to me. 

This time, I decided to share with you 10 bands which aren't very known worldwide, you know, not the typical famous ones, the ones growing and fighting for their space in the world of music! Maybe I've already told you about some of them in posts of news or of covers, but I'll try not to repeat myself. 

1. I'll start with one of my favorite ones, Suck It Up! These guys with a pop-punk vibe that brings anyone back to the 00's that will definitely lift up your mood. Pop-punk's not dead, right guys? ;)

2. Coming from the UK, Through Your Eyes not only shows us that they have great music qualities and write very cool music, but also they show us that they can make very cool music videos to fit them!

3. They're One Mile Left and they're Back In Town! Okay, the bad joke's over... these guys from Germany with this cool pop-punk style and home-made videos are definitely worth a try!

4. Now we cross the lake and go to Florida, where we find the guys from Palm Trees & Power Lines jumping and singing to the rhythm of pop-punk!

5. Last, but not least, we have Send Request! They'll wake up the revel and angry teen inside you and will make you get up and do whatever you want to!

I hope you guys liked these bands, let me know your thoughts below in the comments! Here you can watch the YouTube playlist where I add videos of bands I enjoy - you can also request me some bands to talk about here or just for me to check them out ^-^

"It's too late to apologize"

Hey guys! 

Today, I was just listening to the song "Apologize" by OneRepublic when something came to my mind - it's basically like the song says. I started to wonder where's the point of no return when it comes to apologies. I started to wonder when do we say 'enough' and decide that we no longer accept any apologies. 

There's a moment when someone who has really hurt you, who has let you down so badly, apologizes. They say they're sorry, maybe they even say that it's the last time, that they didn't mean it. I'm in favor of apologies, don't give me to wrong - I'm the first one to apologize when I make a mistake or hurt someone. And forgiving it's okay, because we're all human and make mistakes. 

Nevertheless, sometimes, an apology isn't enough. When you get hurt many times by the same person you start to wonder if you actually want to forgive them. You start to wonder if their words are actually true, or if they're only lies, just like it has happened many times before. I've been there. 

There you see the person, a person you really care about and maybe you love that person, just like in the song. They're saying they're sorry, that they need you - but you've seen that before. They've apologized before and then stabbed you in the back, and this time you tell yourself that you've had enough, that it's too late. Even though that person means the world to you, even though you love that person more than anything in the world, even though you need them... you just can't forgive them for what they did or said. You're afraid of being hurt the same way again, you might even be afraid of the person who's apologizing. 

There are moments in which you just can't forgive someone - it's already too late to apologize.

"Makeshift Love"

Hi guys! 

Only a week ago, Good Charlotte was announcing their coming back. Not only they annouced that, but also we've already had the chance of watching a new music video by them, isn't that amazing? The single they previewed, "Makeshift Love" has its music video, which you can check out now! What do you think about it? 

In my opinion, they're keeping their old sound, which is one of the things I like the most about them, so, I couldn't be happier. If we mix that with a funny video, we have "Makeshift Love". I can't wait to hear more new stuff by them. I.'m really excited for new music, what about you?

"Speak Soft"

Hello there! 

Only a few hours ago, the pop-punk band As It Is released the official music video for their song "Speak Soft". This is the third single and music video off their first album 'Never Happy, Ever After". 

The video, just like the song, is about being between trying to bring someone you disappointed back to your life and wondering if you really deserve it. Well, that's my personal interpretation of the song! I really enjoy the lyrics of the song, especially the part that says: "I'd never choose to be me" - I relate to that one. And, I think that many people relate to that part too. Sometimes (or many times), I just wonder if I'd choose to be myself if I had the chance or not. The answer basically depends of my mood. Would you choose to be you? 

Besides that, the song also brings up the concept of progression. It talks about those moments when we see that we're not progressing at all, even though our intentions are good. We try to move forward and progress, but it feels like we're stuck somewhere.

Another meaning I see behind the lyrics is the feeling that you always make mistakes and let a certain person down, when maybe you don't make that many mistakes. After all, we all make mistakes and screw it all up sometimes, don't we?
