EP Review: MYMINDISOUTOFME by Distant Blue

The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived, and Distant Blue have finally dropped their highly anticipated debut EP.

The EP opens with Tongue Tied and yes, this is a song we've heard before but it's a song we all love!
I have previously voiced my opinions on this track and I'll happily voice them again.

I LOVE IT.

One of my favourite things about Distant Blue is how well they pull off their sound. Some bands can't always pull off the sound they're trying to be, and it makes me really happy when a band can pull off that sound, and Ed's voice is perfect for the sound.

I don't want to focus too heavily on the songs that have already been released because I don't want to be repeating myself, and there are some SOLID new songs on the EP!

The next song is Lucid Liar (Novocaine) which again I've voiced my opinions on. Again, I absolutely love it. I think it's a solid song, and lyrically I love it so much. I love Ed's vocals, and I real…

EP Review: JSA

JSA are back with an EP.

JSA are a five-piece alt-rock band from Croydon. They originally formed back in the late 00's, but the band went on hiatus after a few EP's. However, the band is now back together and they're releasing their new EP on the 14th, which is this week. And I'm coming to you early with a review of the new EP 'Ghosts'.

The EP was mixed and mastered by Alan Smith.



The EP is 5 tracks long, and the first track is Everything. It's a pretty solid track, not my favourite on the EP but it's still good. It's definitely a good opener. The lyrics are beautiful and both the vocals and instrumentals compliment that.

The second track is Factory, and honestly, I love the intro to this track. It's a little more laid back than Everything, and in a way, this one gives me a sort of Busted vibe. The lyrics are great though, it almost sounds a bit like Mayday Parade in a way, which I wouldn't complain about because I love Mayday to bits. The …

Band Review: Kid Amelia

Kid Amelia are a 4-piece indie/alt-rock band hailing from Nottingham.

For fans of - The 1975, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Nothing but Thieves, Arctic Monkeys and The Xcerts

I'd heard of them before seeing them with The Mocking Jays, however, that was the first time I'd seen them live. They're quite a good band, and I do love finding a good local band that I can support. They have a good sound, it's unique, it's similar to The Xcerts but it has their own little twist on it.

They're the sort of band that if I was at a gig or festival that I was at as well, and they didn't clash then I'd probably go and see them again. They're not a band that I'll be dying to attend every gig for because that's something that's a struggle for me with bands.

I will say that their live performance was a lot better than expected, and by that, I don't mean their musical performance, I mean the lighting and the masks and the little details. They did well, a…

Live Review: Real Friends, Grayscale and Belmont

Date - 21st of October 2019
Location - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Act - Real Friends and Grayscale with support from Belmont




Belmont was the first on, opened with Hollowed Out, lost my voice for the rest of the set. They were good, but I did think that the sound was off, for the pure fact that it was the same for Real Friends and Grayscale, so Rescue Rooms, less drums more vocals please. The mix was off, however, besides that, they were actually pretty good! Absolute adored them! I got to hear Pushing Daises and Hollowed Out live so I can't complain. They were good, they had a hell of a lot of energy, more energy than I ever have. And I actually really enjoyed seeing them, it was one of them things that I wanted to see them live, and now I have can tick it off my list sort of thing.

They did put on a good show and they were bloody good at warming up the crowd, cause the pit definitely got going. My heart is happy.

Overall, 4 out of 5 lemons!


Next up was Grayscale, and this was when I…

Twin Atlantic Are Up To Something?

As you may or may not be aware Twin Atlantic have been being cryptic again, which always tends to mean new music and we did get it.

It came in steps, but we got what we all wanted.

So if you're unaware Twin Atlantic are an alt-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. They're my favourite band, I have so much love for them, and their last album was released on the 9th of September 2016, so this has been a long time coming. I've been waiting so long for the new Twin Atlantic era.

For a week, Twin was being cryptic, which is what they always do when new music is on the horizon. For the week starting the 7th of October, they started posting cryptic videos all with a different number.

It all manifested on Friday the 11th of October when they posted that the new song was called Novocaine. That was when the numbers started making sense, if you were to type out Novocaine on a keypad on a phone, the number it would produce would be 0668622463. They then posted a link to their website, and…

Giving Music I Dislike A Second Chance...

So this idea was inspired by a video Yasmine Summan did on her YouTube channel and I thought, hey, that's an interesting idea, so I don't take credit for this idea, but I think most of our choices will be different.

Creeper- I don't like Creeper, they're my best friends favourite band and I can't stand them. And listening to them again, I still don't like them. I can't, I'm sorry. They're just not the sort of music I'm into.

Love and Loathing by With Confidence - It's not a bad album but it's not my favourite, it doesn't have something that makes me want to listen to it on repeat and yall might hate me for it but I just don't like it.

MANIA by Fall Out Boy - I can't, I just can't handle this one. Nope. It's not necessarily bad it's just not the best FOB album, and the only song I really listen to off the album is Wilson (Expensive Mistake).

Rituals by Deaf Havana - I don't dislike it, I like the album, it has …

Single Review: Bad News by Best Of Enemies

Yes, you've heard correctly, you've read that title correctly... Best of Enemies are back! 

When Sam messaged me and told me I was quite excited, because their last EP was amazing, so when I was giving the opportunity to do this post, I had to take Sam up on the offer. 
Best Of Enemies are no strangers on this blog because in this little blog we love BoE.
However, if you've forgotten who Best of Enemies are, or you are new here (there are other posts on here that you can check out I suggest just going to the search and typing them in and reading the other posts as well), then I'll refresh your brains.
This is Best of Enemies, they're a 4-piece alt-rock band hailing from the wonderful land of Croydon. 
From left to right the band consists of;
Christian Kally-Gallimore - Bass

They're amazing, all their links will be below, and they were one of the first bands I ever did a review on, and fo…
