Lemon Awards 2019: A Year of Music

πŸ‹ Lemon Awards 2019 πŸ‹
It's that time of the year again where we sit back, I write a very long post, but we do the lemon awards. If you're new here, or you haven't been following me for that long, then here we go. To summarise, the Lemon Awards are something I do every year and I write about the best of everything music-wise. These are always my favourite post to do, and last year I did little certificates, and this year I've done the same. So here we go! Will be some recurring categories and there will be some new ones. So sit down and enjoy!

Single Review: What You Want by Home Wrecked

Home Wrecked have just released their new single What You Want. Spoiler alert: it slaps. Home Wrecked are a relatively new band to me, I only discovered them about 2 months ago, but I honestly love them! One of my favourite things about this track is the progression and depth in the sound. It sounds on the heavier side of pop-punk whilst also sounding very classic pop-punk at the same time. There's just something about it that's unique and that sets them apart from the rest!

It's a very catchy track, and it's a song that's going to be stuck in my head when I stop listening to it. It sounds heavy whilst not actually being that heavy, but I love that. I would compare it to Four Year Strong and Chunk! No Captain Chunk! and in that retrospect, I guess I'm branding it as easycore, but it's so good!

I find it quite refreshing to hear this song in the pop-punk scene when a lot of bands are switching to a more mainstream, poppier sound, which isn't bad, but it…

New in Music: Four Year Strong, Enter Shikari, Belmont and More

The past few weeks have been quite exciting when it comes to releases in music, it seems to be that music is being thrown at us from all directions, and honestly, I'm here for it. So it's time for me to crack on with this post because it's going to be a long one! We've got a lot of bands to talk about and a lot of new tracks.

All Time Low-

All Time Low is a band that I used to love but I wasn't overly fond on the last album, so their new tracks weren't top of my list, but now I'm even more shocked because I didn't have high hopes. So they have Some Kind of Disaster and Sleeping In and wow. Mindblown. Some Kind of Disaster is very much for me, comparable to Dirty Work and that was my favourite ATL album, I really like it and I think it's very catchy and it's interesting when it comes to the sound because there's so much change. It shows why All Time Low are still out here making bangers and having a large following. However, moving onto Slee…

New In Notts: Fast Car to Florence and Near Mrs

So, we're back with a new in Notts post, since both Fast Car To Florence and Near Mrs have blessed our ears once again.

Fast Car To Florence 





Cry isn't officially released until Friday (28th February 2020) however, it is up on YouTube if you want to listen early, and I'm trying to keep on top of all these blog posts, so we're going to be talking about it today.

So this is officially the start of the new era of Fast Car To Florence, but I still love this band so much! And we shall continue to support FCTF here until either this blog ends or the band does because they were the first Notts band I worked with, and it's because of them that I found all these other bands I work with now, so thank you Fast Car for making my dreams more of a reality.

So, this isn't a whole new song, there's no adjustment needed. It's like Address The World but better. This is honestly such an incredible song, and from the first few seconds, I knew I was going to love it. Isaac h…

Single Review: Lonely by Four Thousand Miles

So rewind a month and I got a DM off a band that I actually replied to, I know me replying to messages, shocking. But I was intrigued because they're a band with four thousand miles between them, there's 2 members from the UK, one from England and one from Wales, there's one from France and then another from America! Which is obviously quite interesting because that's something that you don't see often. So of course, I had to offer them a review! And I am so thankful they accepted the offer because I'm blown away!

So, Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band who released their first single on Friday (14th February) and like I always do, I stayed up until midnight to listen to it and I was blown away!

It's catchy, very catchy. I mean I was sending it to most of the people I was talking to and making them listen to it, that's when you know I love a song a lot.

Some lines hit me in places I forgot lyrics could hit me, it's such a beautiful, wel…

So What's The Noise? February Edition

So here I am trying to make this thing a series on here!

So since the last post we've had Twin Atlantic drop a new album, we've had new Trophy Eyes, new Four Year Strong, and Hot Milk even blessed our ears again with their new track June Gloom. Boston Manor also dropped a new song. There hasn't been much new music but I tend to find that's the case at the start of the year.

However, You Me At Six are apparently dropping new music this week! There's a new Four Year Strong album coming out at the end of the month.

The Mocking Jays have been annouced as the support for Black Cats and Magpies in April. Over half of Twin Atlantic's march tour is sold out so if you haven't got your tickets yet get them in!

I'm pretty certain I saw somewhere about the mocks being in the studio again and yeah. Although the past month has been kinda dry in music, it's starting to pick up again and I think there's going to be big things coming in the next few months.

Also, A D…

Live Review: Twin Atlantic at Metronome

Band - Twin Atlantic
Date - 27.01.2020
Location - Metronome, Nottingham



Last week Notts welcomed Twin Atlantic back into the city. It'd been a while since Twin Atlantic had been in Nottingham, and to be in such a small capacity venue (similar to the likes of Rescue Rooms capacity wise) and for them to be doing a signing afterwards was great to see. The set was only 45 minutes long and to say that Sam and Ross were unwell at the time you wouldn't have thought so. They pushed on and got through the set and were still up for meeting fans after the show.

The setlist consisted of;

Oh! Euphoria!
Novocaine

No Sleep
Make A Beast Of Myself

Volcano

Brothers and Sisters
Barcelona

Heart and Soul

The set was short and sweet and it was a good variety if you think that they've just released a new album there were 4 songs from POWER, one from Free, one from GLA and two from Great Divide. It was a great show with a lot of energy and to say that I don't see bigger bands that often anymore, it was …

Live Review: The Mocking Jays at Beat the Streets

A.N. Before I get into the post I just want to apologise for how shit this may seem but honestly, I'm grieving. If you follow me on Twitter you might know that my aunt passed away on Tuesday so this wasn't at the top of my list of priorities. Thanks 




This was my 15th time seeing The Mocking Jays, so at this point, you'd think that it's getting boring and repetitive, but that is 100%, not the case. Every time I see TMJ live there's always something to make you laugh and smile about, and I don't think I will ever get sick of seeing them lads on a stage.

So this time, they were playing at Rough Trade which I do actually enjoy as a venue because it's small, and it's all up close and personal gigs in there.

There were 3 new songs (2 of which did get their debut on the headlining tour back in October) and going off them 3 songs, I am really excited in the way that they're progressing and the direction they're taking with their music. I would definite…
