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'

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…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
