I just heard about this band the other day from my one of my friends during a text conversation. He thought it would be right up my alley, and well he was right. The name of the band is “Tonight Alive“. They are a five piece pop punk band from Australia. That’s right, Australia!
Tonight Alive has been around since 2008, so I would consider them a newer band. Some people have compared them to Paramore… but I think they’ve got their own little spunk that sets them apart. In either case they are a good band and I think you should give them a listen.
The song I’ve picked is from the new album, “The Other Side”. The album was just released on September 6, so it is brand new! I’ve actually picked two songs off this album. The reason is, well I just can’t pick between the two!
The first song I’ve picked is titled “The Other Side”, it’s the title track off the album. I picked this song because of how heartfelt it is. You can truly feel the emotion put into the song, from the way that it is sung to the way that it is played. It’s a great song and you can listen to it below.
The second song I’ve picked is titled “The Fire”. It is the song that I originally intended to put on this blog before I started struggling with “The Other Side”. I really enjoy the crisp guitar in this song. I especially like the guitars in the bridge. The song is sung very well and I find myself wanting to belt out parts of it with the singer.
