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.

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
