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.
  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.
  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
  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'

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
