Why I Love Twin Atlantic

Twin Atlantic aren't your average band, for many reasons, which I will get onto in a minute. Twin Atlantic are one of them bands that actually play instruments and write their own lyrics... Twin Atlantic find joy in being the band that they are, they aren't doing it for money, and as the wise Sam McTrusty once said, they don't make that much money from what they do. Now, I look at other bands that are massive, and then I look at Twin Atlantic. Twin Atlantic are so talented, I actually can't process how talented they are. Just listen to any Twin Atlantic song and then try and say that they can't sing or play music... because Sam McTrusty, Barry McKenna, Ross McNae and Craig Kneale will prove you wrong.
So why is it that I love this band more than anything?
1. Gordon... only Twin Atlantic fans will understand this, and I'll try and link the video at the end of this post.
2. Sam has the voice of an angel
3. Cello solo Barry (and the cello solo is... it leaves me breathless)
4. Out of all the bands I've seen live, nobody has been as good as Twin Atlantic.
5. Let us just remember and appreciate the rain mac phase they went through...
6. Their accents... brb I'm melting at their accents
7. Their latest album GLA is a tribute to their city, how beautiful is that?
8. Sam's very bizarre tweets, I still can't get my head around the stealing candy from a baby one...
9. Ross' lack of tweeting, I'm sorry how many tweets in how many years?
10. Craig's photography... and the fact he supplies us with all the Twin Atlantic photos we need
11. The opening line to Time For You To Stand Up
12. The fact nobody in Nottingham seemed to want Sam to crowdsurf in 2016
13. I hate a lot of band's fanbase's and I'm ashamed to be a fan of some bands, but Twin Atlantic have such a lovely fanbase. Some of my favourite people have came into my life via Twin Atlantic
14. Let's just get this out of the way, nobody knew the words to Ex El, but we all loved it anyway... then we learnt what Sam was actually saying and although we're still trying to get over the lyrics, we love it.
15. They're genuine, they don't act like they're this egotistical rock band... although Sam is referred to as being arrogant, but he's such a lovely person
16. Without Twin Atlantic, I wouldn't know @twitatlantic, @MASTERCASSIUS, @kryfaulkner (and now she's one of my favourite people, love you girl!) and so many other people
17. No Sleep
18. I'm sorry just go look at a photo of Sam McTrusty...
19. I'm sorry, did you say your autotune band was talented? Go listen to Yes, I Was Drunk
20. Sam's legs are longer than my will to live
21. Have you heard their cover of Crash by Usher? Because that speaks louder than anything.
22. GLA
23. Great Divide
24. Free
25. Vivarium
26. And the one that we cannot forget... A Guidance From Colour
27. The Chaser
28. Half of their song titles make no sense, but you know, we love them anyway.
29. Their lyrics
30. Their lyrics are more relatable than half the stuff that is classed as good music.
31. The way Sam say's grace (but that might just be because that's my name)

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Killing Giants by Holygood

  Holygood are back! After what seems like forever, but in reality, hasn't actually been that long Holygood are back and they've released their 4th track of the year. This time, they're back with a new vibe and sound whilst still sounding very much like classic Holygood.  Now, Holygood's last release was Better Off Before which I still listen to a lot! I think it's the best song they've released, and it really is just an incredible track. However, because Better Off Before was as good as it was, I felt very reluctant about new music, because like I've said in posts on other bands, when the previous release is so incredible, how can a band really top that. That's my main thought when going into this track, is it as good as Better Off Before? Can they really top that release?  The intro had me a little confused, and very sceptical of what was about to happen. It's definitely got a lot of rap elements/influences within it, but that's not necessarily
