Single Review: Edge Of You Knife by The Mocking Jays

A.N I was supposed to post this last week, but my Monday and Tuesday were spent in A&E. BUT AFTER IT BEING OUT FOR JUST OVER A WEEK HERE WE GO! EOYKThe Mocking Jays have just blessed us all with a new single, that dropped on the 13th of July. If you are unfamiliar with who The Mocking Jays are, then you should go check them out because as I've said before they're an amazing band, and they're one of my favourites.
So what did I think of EOYK? 
I love The Mocking Jays and I have heard EOYK live five times, so when it dropped I was very familiar with the song... but, if you know me then you probably think I worship this song? And if you did, then you're right.
Edge Of You Knife is amazing, it's super catchy, like I'd be lying if I said I didn't have it stuck in my head at least 10 times a day.
It's so upbeat and catchy, that it makes you want to listen to it on repeat (I mean I clearly listen to hardly anything else considering it's my most listened to song currently).
The music video is filmed in Nottingham, and can we appreciate the signs in the video? Can we just take a moment to appreciate them? "£2 of Funk in a £1 bag"
If you have 4 minutes to spare, go and check out the new music video because it's amazing. I have never loved a music video so much.
If we're talking about the music video then let's take a moment to appreciate Jay and his megaphone. And that little bit, that bit that if you've listened to it you know what I mean. I mean the boys in the band have to stop the noise at some point BUT WE DON'T WANT THEM TO.
While we're appreciating aspects of the song, let's appreciate the cowbell... have you ever heard something so great as that little-added touch? The cowbell is a mood, like my mood is the cowbell, I don't care if that makes no sense, if you've heard the song (which you totally need to go and check out) you will get why the cowbell is a mood, and why it is as good as it is!
Edge Of You Knife deserves all the love in the world, just like The Mocking Jays do, they honestly deserve so much love, and this single is an absolute banger! It's one of the best songs I've ever heard, and I mean they have some other dope songs, but Edge Of Your Knife makes me wanna scream, and for a song to do that to me currently says a lot because, it currently hurts a lot to scream.
What Would You Rate EOYK? 
A solid 6/5 lemons, it's The Mocking Jays and EOYK is such a bop and it's amazing. Honestly, if you haven't listened to it already then please go and show these guys some love because they deserve it and EOYK deserves all the love too.
How Would You Summarise EOYK
It's a bop of a song and it's giving me life and it's great. - Amber
It's good because it's not like every other band out there now it's like nice to hear pure refreshing if that makes sense and like I just don't understand how they aren't bigger - Sam

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
