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.

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.

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
