Live Review: The Mocking Jays (Round 3)

Do I love The Mocking Jays? Yes...
Am I really about to do another review of them? Yes... so prepare yourself for me to express how I felt when I saw them for the third time.
Before I dive into this upload if you are unaware of who The Mocking Jays are, or why I love them so much, here's a few things for you to see.

TMJ gig review (including the other bands who played as well).,.
So I saw The Mocking Jays for the third time in just over a month, on the 19th of April 2018. Every time I see them, they get better. I don't know why I find them better every time, but I do. I wish I could explain why, or what it is, but every time they give me a reason to love them even more. There's just so much energy like The Mocking Jays consist of Jacob, George, Lewis, Alex and Sam, and they all act like they want to be there! I've seen numerous bands that put no energy in, and you can tell that they don't want to be there. I was even called miserable by one of them bands because I wasn't getting into the mood of the gig because there was no energy. The Mocking Jays are not like that though, they put the effort in. There is energy there, you tend to expect energy no matter what from a frontman, and Jacob does give off a lot of energy, however, Sam and Alex also give off lots of energy, along with Lewis and George. They also played a new song... and, let's just say, it was amazing. My ears were blessed.
The thing with The Mocking Jays, is that they are the best band I've seen live, and nothing lives up to seeing them live, because they sound absolutely phenomenal (see, pulling out all the big words here) live. They had a great set, my thing is that I always want just The Mocking Jays, that's how good they are live. And, just how great they are in general. Jacob's vocals, and George's backing vocals, did someone say a blessing?  I have to rank this gig at the top of all 3 gigs because I had the pleasure of meeting The Mocking Jays. The nicest band I've ever met, and that includes the friends I've had who are in bands, which says a lot... either about how nice The Mocking Jays are, or that I have a poor taste in friends... although I think it says how nice they are. Like awh, I'm just going to take a moment to love and appreciate them.
So I guess we're getting down to the part where I have to give a lemon rating, and this is the difficult bit, because the first time, they got 5, and then 6, so I feel like it should be 7 to carry on this trend. However, because The Mocking Jays are a special band to me... to show just how great they are... 5 sparkly lemons.

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
