Live Review: The Mocking Jays at Beat The Streets

So it was my birthday yesterday and it was also Beat The Streets yesterday... and TMJ played BTS so what a better way to celebrate my birthday than seeing bands I liked...(They'll be another live review up on Friday so stay tuned for that one). But until then it's a live review of TMJ's performance.

The Mocking Jays: Beat The Streets...more like beat the capacity of the venue
TMJ round 10
There was certainly a lot of people there, and it was actually great to see so many people there to see TMJ because there were hundreds and hundreds of people there. Rock City Beta (Basement) was at capacity+ for TMJ which was incredible to see so many people there to see them make some noise.
As always there was so much energy in the set that you enjoyed being there, and you can tell that TMJ wanted to be there by the amount of energy within the set, and there's nothing worse than going to a gig and knowing that the band doesn't want to be there, but that's never the case at a TMJ gig, as you can normally tell by the amount of energy that goes into their performances.
It was in my opinion, their best gig yet, and I mean this was round 10. It was such an incredible, energetic performance and it was definitely a gig I wish I could relive.
Their setlist was:
- Edge Of You Knife (and Jay even had the megaphone for this performance so it made it even better, especially when we got the little sirens)
- Funny Bones (which is just a complete bop)
- Close To You (this is their single that is dropping on the 8th of February, so tune back in two weeks to see my review of that)
- Kiss My Neck (which is their latest single, and if you haven't heard that then go and check that out)
- Sex On The Beach
- Tears In Summer
- I Can't Be Without Your Love
Each one of them songs was packed full of energy, which 100% contributed to the atmosphere within the gig. That was a solid setlist, and it was definitely filled with songs that made you want to be there, songs that made you want to dance. Songs that made it an impeccable performance.
Overall it was a solid 6.6 sparkly lemons out of 5, because between the setlist and the atmosphere and the energy I cannot fault it in the slightest.

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
