Why I Love: The Mocking Jays...

20180702_161129-01I have done these before, I did one on Twin Atlantic and one on Deaf Havana. So it's only fair that I do one on The Mocking Jays, because if you know me you know that I support this band a hell of a lot. So let's do this!
  1. "George Ramplin everyone!" if you've seen the 2017 live video of Take You Home then you understand.
  2. Jacob Smith
  3. Lewis Hammond
  4. George Ramplin
  5. Sam Dorrington
  6. Alex Hather
  7. 13.07.18
  8. Take You Home
  9. Sex On The Beach
  10. Kiss My Neck
  11. The pea story... if you know, you know.
  12. THEY'RE FROM NOTTINGHAM, LIKE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I LOVE THAT THEY'RE A LOCAL BAND
  13. That little mosh pit to I Can't Be Without You Love
  14. I ruined Amber's life with taking her to see them twice...
  15. They're so lovely and friendly (still regret not believing when I was told they were friendly, because oh my gosh! They're so nice)
  16. That riff in Take You Home, again if you know, you know.
  17. HAVE YOU SEEN THEIR SHIRTS?!
  18. Have you seen the mocking dogs? because yeah, I have a soft spot for dogs and there's dogs... so random, but you know...
  19. Close To You
  20. Too Close
  21. Feels (Feels is a bop, and I'm not ashamed that I know the words to it...)
  22. She Knows
  23. Go All Night
  24. Cold Hands
  25. Funny Bones
  26. That total bop of a song that's coming out next Friday! aka, Edge Of Your Knife
  27. They get better every time you see them live.
  28. Remember that one time when I saw them live and Jacob tried to cheer me up by dedicating my favourite song to me... Spoiler alert... It worked
  29. That one time me, Lewis and Jacob couldn't think of the name of Edge Of Your Knife
  30. HAVE YOU HEARD HOW TALENTED THEY ARE?!
  31. Grit My Teeth
  32. The fact that so many people have said to me that they think they look like they'd have big ego's, then I throw a lil story in their face and they realise they're the sweetest and most genuine people
  33. Jay and Lewis' hugs.  Top notch hugs they are.
Like always, I'm gonna put my top songs;
1. Kiss My Neck
2. Sex On The Beach
3. Edge Of Your Knife
4. I Can't Be Without You Love
5. Grit My Teeth
I'm not doing my ratings, because we all know I give the mocks a solid 6/5 every time, because they're fabulous because they're 'Sexy, Funky, Dirty, Pop. Everything you want to hear and more'

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
