Why I Love Deaf Havana

A.N. So I ran a poll on Twitter to see which topics you wanted to see on Band Week, and this was a winner.
If you didn't know, Deaf Havana is my joint favourite band, and because I've done a Twin Atlantic reasons why it's only fair that I now do my Deaf Havana one.
Deaf Havana are just an amazing English alt-rock band and I love them to bits, I love the fact they write their own songs, and they play their own songs... that's a big thing for me, I like a band with meaning in their lyrics, and well, Deaf Havana gives me feelings. James, Matt, Tom, Max and Lee are so talented and they deserve so much recognition, I've loved them for like four years now, and just... they still leave me speechless.
So why do I love them?
1. Have you seen them?
2. "I'm overweight, overtired and sick of trying to find an answer in these darkened city bars"
3. They're really good live! (and I wanna see them again... rip, to my wages)
4. Go and listen to Anemophobia and then Anemophobia part 2...
5. Their song titles
6. Have you heard the song St Paul's? Because I cry every time and it's so beautiful
7. James' voice has so many emotions
8. Each song tells a story...
9. Without Deaf Havana, I wouldn't know of Best of Enemies
10. James' tweets are golden
11. Hunstanton Pier
12. "Me and Lee were schooled in a tourist town with less culture than Jeremy Kyle" I mean, how can you not love that?
13. The Wasp Song
14. James' solo music, I mean, come on, beautiful!
15. The fan base isn't that dramatic, unlike certain fandoms...
16. Seattle was initially a solo song and ended up on All These Countless Nights
17. Sickago is such a tune
18. Relatable lyrics
19. "I'm not a pessimist but sometimes hope is missed or missing"
20. They cannot sound bad, they just don't, they're like angel's voices
21. They have some of the best songs in my opinion
22. "Nobody but you could make me feel this old at 22"
23. Just watch a live video or like a session video and you'll get why.

Demon on the Run by Four Thousand Miles

  After what feels like forever (when in reality it's only been 6 months), Four Thousand Miles are back! Because it's been so long, and I know over the past few months there's been a big increase in the traffic to this blog, and there are new readers, let me just give you a brief recap on who 4KM are!   Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band, and their name comes from the fact that between Alex M and Lionel there's 4000 miles!  The band consists of;  Alex F - Vocals and guitar Lionel - Guitar Alex M - Drums  Liam - Bass They now have 3 tracks out, Lonely, Reflections and the brand new track Demon on the Run!  For anybody that cares, Four Thousand Miles are my joint-favourite small band and I would probably sell a few organs for them, also will eventually get a tattoo for them when little miss rona decides to leave us all alone.  Anyway, let's get into the thoughts on the new song!  I was super hyped for this song to drop, and I just knew they wouldn'

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

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
