Single Review: Your First Mistake – Today is a Good Day to Bury Bad News

A while a go I took a sunny trip to Edinburgh to interview Sean from Your First Mistake. Now I’ve been given a sneaky peak at the upcoming single Today is a Good Day to Bury Bad News.


Since the last time I spoke to them YFM have added another guitarist to the line up, so in the light of this news I was expecting something big from the lads. To read the interview with Sean click here.

I was a bit surprised when I first listened to the track, it was much quieter and softer than what I’ve come to expect from them. For the first half of the song it listens like the token ballad track that appears on most rock albums. I have to admit I’m a bit of a sucker for the slower tracks just for a bit of variety, so the guitar not being the forefront of everything going on in the song is a nice change for me. The drums definitely make this track in my eyes, the guitar takes a back seat until the breakdown half way through and it’s the drums that set the pace.

After the halfway point the track takes a definite turn and you’re hit with a wall of sound with the guitar coming into play with a pretty nice hook from the lead, a lot of screaming and cymbal crashing.

All in all a pretty good track from the lads of Your First Mistake, if I had to rate it I’d give it a 4/5. You can tell that the addition of another guitarist has helped the band evolve since the last time we’ve heard from them but you can make up your own mind about the track by listening to it!
