Listening to this song is like shotgunning a four pack of Red Bull and shoving your fingers in a mains socket. And that chorus is fucking boss!!! #wildhearts #suckerpunch #earthvsthewildhearts #1993 #ginger #gingerwildheart #rock #punk #awesome #fuckyeah
I was sent a copy of this to review for A Short Fanzine About Rocking recently. Upon first listen, I pretty much went “urgh, more boring radio-rimming pop-rock shite,” wrote a fairly lazy and mildly scathing review and moved on. But for some reason I was drawn to give it another chance, and found myself re-editing my review with every subsequent listen; from “mild slagging-off” to “fairly underwhelmed” to “just above average” and, by the time I finally submitted all my reviews, I’d reached a verdict of “surprisingly pretty good, except for one song that sounds like an X-factor reject.” Since then, even that song (“Keep Swinging”) has grown on me exponentially along with the rest of the album. There’s a significant chance this might make my “Best of 2014” list at this rate. Well done on winning over a cynic and unlikely new fan, Blitz Kids. Everyone else; check this out if you’ve ever enjoyed the poppier side of UK rock over the last decade-and-a-half. You wont regret it, even if it takes a few listens to sink in… #blitzkids #thegoodyouth #redbullrecords #rock #uk

This album is successfully distracting me from back pain, boredom, stress, and the knowledge that the latter is only going to increase a fuckload over the next week or two… #samiam #astray #punk #emo #jams (at Costa Coffee Newark)
One of the most truly beautiful, soulful and simply amazing songs I’ve ever heard. I remember pre-ordering the album from Banquet Records and then immediately forgetting I’d done so. It turned up a few weeks later, seemingly out of the blue and this song in particular hit so hard. The lyrics in particular outlined a few home truths that I really needed to hear at that time in my life.
Sunny day jams make me want to dance!!! #sunnydayjams #sunnyday #savestheday #singalong #youknowthewords
