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

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
