Hollins : Something

Hollins : Something

Once again, YouTube introduced me to another band. Hollins are a “danceable melodic rock” band and their 2014 EP Something does a great job presenting it. Starting with “Something,” Hollins immediately show off their melodic rock strengths. The...
ADOY : Laika & Don’t Stop

ADOY : Laika & Don’t Stop

I prefer not to write about singles because thoughts are based off a limited number of songs. ADOY released their second single “Don’t Stop” and I never talked about their first “Laika” so I’m combining them both together. ADOY is a...
Five Run Strike : Can You Hear Me

Five Run Strike : Can You Hear Me

Let’s get the obvious out of the way, the vocalist of Five Run Strike Rami was part of Kpop group D-Unit. What I’m not sure of is if this band featuring Rami and Crow (who I never heard of) is going to be a project or new band. What I can say is that Five...

Gemi (개미) : Above The Nest
