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

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
