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

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track.
