New In Notts: The Half Eight and Fast Car To Florence

So after a long time Fast Car have finally ends the silence and boy, it’s good!  Their comeback tune is called No Excuses, and already if that title doesn’t win you over I don’t know what will. It’s exactly what you’d want to come from Fast Car To Florence after a long time, and it makes me very happy to have this song available. It’s not my favourite track that they’ve ever done because It Gets Old and Sick On My Own are still getting that spot. But it’s still top notch. It reminds me a lot of the Address The World sound, similar to Hypnotise You. Which that was an amazing song and that was actually the song that I first heard by them! I’ve said this time and time again and I will continue to say it, Isaac has such a lovely voice and he can sing anything and it sound amazing. And this song is no exception. It’s a beautiful song that makes you feel warm inside the song is about self realisation and not being hard on yourself but also knowing when you’re not being hard enough on your self. …

Single Review: Everything I Want by The Half Eight

So yes, The Half Eight are dropping new music all over the place currently, honestly it's almost hard to keep up as they're dropping another new track on this Friday! However, I am not complaining as I'm a sucker for a good tune off them! The Half Eight are one of my go-to bands if I'm wanting a good love song. Everything I Want initially wasn't a song I took a lot of pleasure in, however, I was half asleep when I listened to it, and then when I came to listening to it again, I was pleasantly surprised. This time I wasn't half asleep. I'm a sucker for a good love song currently, because love songs make me think of my favourite person, but I think most people know who that is! Anyway, I was absolutely in love with this song when I heard it, doesn't beat Drunk Like You but I mean ya girl wants to hear Drunk Like You live, which reminds me, I got tickets to The Last First Tour and I'm so excited! I can't wait to go to the tour and have a good little b…

The Resurrection of McFly

McFly are back?!

So McFly are back, well kinda. If you’ve been living under a rock then you might not know that McFly have announced their comeback! They’re giving us Galaxy Defenders what we’ve been waiting NINE YEARS FOR! NEW MUSIC! Or technically old music.
Above The Noise was their last album and was released in 2010. However, whilst we all sat patiently waiting for YEARS for the mystery album 6, it never came. They’d say it was definitely coming that year and it never did. They kept telling us this, and they’d post about going off to record the album again and again, but the album never came.
In 2013, McBusted emerged. Which did provide us new music, but it wasn’t McFly. It wasn’t the same. So us fans sat for longer patiently waiting for new music and then the band were on hiatus. McBusted lasted for two years, and it was heartbreaking. In 2017 they did their Anthology Tour where they played every album in full back to back. After that it was radio silence from the band as a whol…

New In Music: Morale, The Half Eight, The Mocking Jays and More

Morale

Morale released a new song a couple of weeks ago, and I just haven't got round to writing my thoughts on the track. This track is my least favourite that I'm reviewing, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. It reminds me of another band, but I'm not too sure who it is. It's a Kerrang sort of band, maybe something like 30 Seconds To Mars or System Of A Down. It's a good song, the track is called Dopamine and that just takes me back to when I studied Psychology. It's not heavy, but it's certainly the heaviest of the songs I'm mentioning in this post. In a way it's similar to You Me At Six and Trash Boat which are two bands I adore! I quite like the lyrics, and it isn't boring, it's not a song that you easily lose interest in, however, there is one thing that I slightly dislike and I've mentioned this in a lot of blog posts before. I don't like how the vocals are drowned out, I've never been a fan of that, but I know som…

New Music Review: Twin Atlantic, Trash Boat, A Day To Remember

Lets crack on with this then! I know not a small unheard of band for once... that content will resume next week! Twin Atlantic: Twin Atlantic played Reading and Leeds and debuted a new song called Volcano, sadly it hasn't officially been released, nor is it available for your audible pleasure. However, what I can say is that it was intense! It was so good, it sounded like The Chaser and I Am An Animal had a baby and it was Volcano. If you know me then you know I am dying for Twin Atlantic to release new music, because frankly, GLA was pretty much 3 years ago. We need the new album boys! But Volcano does not disappoint in the slightest, it's magnificent and I actually cried a few tears. However, Twin did not stop there. Oh no the Glaswegian Gods also decided to drop Live From The World Famous Barrowland Ballrooms which is an EP of 5 songs performed live, at their last show at the Barrs. It's beautiful. As much as I want new Twin music so bad, this satisfied my craving. To …

Live Review: The Mocking Jays (Round 14)

The Mocking Jays live at Osfest



So The Mocking Jays played Osfest and they were phenomenal as always! They played all the solid tunes like Kiss My Neck and Edge Of Your Knife sadly we did not hear Take You Home though although, Jay did inform us that it shall be remaking a return to the setlist soon! The weather was intense so it was perfect for a festival outside. The drive was also intense but the things I do to see the boys in the band. I couldn’t recommend seeing TMJ enough. They really are one of the best live acts that I've ever seen. the energy that they put into their performances is next level, and there’s always something to make you smile and laugh during their sets! so if you can make sure you get to a date of The Triangle Tour! Make sure you see the boys play some solid tunes, and also they’re releasing a new song in under 2 weeks! So get excited for that. The Mocking Jays are one of the best bands you could see live and if you want to see them live then i would 100% reco…

Single Review: Numbers and Hanging Up by Isaac Anderson

So Isaac is back again, and he's released two new songs since the last post. And I'm going to review both tracks!
I do not own this photo. Credit goes to Tom Goddard Number; This is an absolute tune, I was very sceptical to listen to it at first because the last track was so beautiful, so I didn't know what to initally think. However, when I took the plunge after a couple of hours, I did it and I listened to it and I loved it so much! The sound reminds me very much of Address The World by FCTF which obviously there's going to be similarities as it's the band that Isaac fronts, but it's like that softer sound in comparison to The Illusion Of Being Fair. However, it has such a nice beat and an extremely catchy tune. The meaning behind the song is about trying not to beat yourself up for not feeling like you're doing enough with the time that you've got or 'Like your life is slipping away' (Isaac's own words). It's got a beautifully powerful se…
