Band/EP Review: Don't Forget Rupert

Guess who's back with another review of a Nottingham band? Oh yeah, it's me. I'm back to promote another band from Nottingham because guess what? There really are some hidden gems of bands in Notts. This is essentially an EP review, but it's only fair that I give you a little insight into the band, and what I think of them. So let's go!
The band consists of:
Ben Martin- Vocals and Guitar
Lewis Henderson- Guitar
Lou Coe- Drums
Pete Cumpstone- Bassist
They're indie rock (which yes, okay we all know indie rock, alt rock and that sort of genre is my life) and they're like a love child of Panic! At The Disco and The 1975, I actually played one of their songs to my friend and she asked me if it was Panic! So, I mean, that's something.  AND THEY'RE A NOTTS BAND, JUST LET THAT SINK IN.
Don't Forget Rupert are honestly so good, like hello, yes, these some good stuff. I'm kinda digging their music currently, I mean if you're looking for a new band and you trust my opinion, then go and give Don't Forget Rupert a listen. Like, yes, you need these guys in your life. I always get scared of finding new bands that I love because I always worry about not loving a band as much as I should, or loving them too much. But honestly, I love Don't Forget Rupert and I will be going to see them (technically again, I mean it depends if we're classing the few songs I saw as seeing them).
The main reason, I am here though, is because on the 10th of August they dropped a new EP called Full Circle. Now Full Circle is amazing. My favourite song is definitely Get Fucked because hello, is this the new anthem? I will be surprised if Get Fucked is not in my most listened songs this month... that's how much I've listened to it, but I feel that way with the entire EP. It's like the mystical little EP, that's got the perfect sound of indie rock, Ben's vocals aren't drowned out either, which is something that puts me off a lot of music nowadays. I like to be able to hear what is being said. So when vocals are not drowned out I do really appreciate it.
Full Circle is an absolute masterpiece and lyrically it's a massive yes, like a triple yes. It's absolutely amazing, and if you haven't checked it out yet, then you should probably, no you should definitely go and give it a listen and show it some love. My top two tracks off the EP are Get Fucked and Time Takes It's Toll. I
The entire EP has an amazing rock vibe, and honestly like I just wanna scream about it from the rooftops because HAVE YOU EVER ENCOUNTERED SOMETHING SO PERFECT?
Honestly, Don't Forget Rupert are amazing, go and show them some love and if you like this post then let me know!
Overall both as a band, and for the EP... Don't Forget Rupert get a solid 5/5 lemons.

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
