EP Review: The Illusion Of Being Fair by Fast Car To Florence

Fast Car To Florence dropped a new EP on Friday called The Illusion Of Being Fair and do you want to know what’s not fair? HOW GOOD THIS EP IS. Like it’s not fair on any other band.

The Illusion Of Being Fair
The EP consists of;
  • It Gets Old
  • Sick On My Own
  • Just Smile
  • Off The Shoulder
  • Something Better

And let me just say, this EP is the best thing they’ve ever done. There isn’t one song on this EP that isn’t a tune!

TIOBF takes you on an emotional journey, since It Gets Old was released I’ve absolutely loved it. And it just blends into the EP so well, it 100% compliments the EP by being the opening track.

And then it’s Sick On My Own which is possibly my second favourite song on the EP. It’s such a relatable song, and it hits me somewhere that I forgot I could be hit. It’s a song that makes me very emotional and it’s also so catchy and it gets stuck in your head.

Then it transitions into Just Smile which I’ve done a full review on and it’s known that I absolutely adore this song. Again it’s a relatable song and I love when I can relate to a song and interpret it in my own way and find a meaning in the song that’s personal to me. And Just Smile definitely has some meaning to me. As soon as I heard this song when it was first released I got so excited about this EP, and it really did live up to the hype.  It’s a song that makes me want to scream and although it isn’t heavy enough for me to scream the lyrics, it’s a song that hits me that hard that I want to scream the lyrics.

Moving onto track 4 we have Off The Shoulder which is my favourite track off the EP. As soon as I heard this song I was in love with it. It’s so catchy and it really is ah absolute tune. For the past couple days it’s been stuck in my head and it’s already in my top 5 most listened to tracks currently. This track makes me feel similarly to Just Smile with the fact that it makes me want to scream the lyrics. Especially when it gets to the chorus. It’s without a doubt my favourite song on the EP. The depth of the sound in this song has me hooked as well.

The last track on the EP is Something Better and again this song does not disappoint. There isn’t one song on the EP that disappoints. The sound on this track is different from the other four though. But it’s the perfect sound to end the EP with and the sound does change part way through the song. Again the lyrics really do hit home and make me emotional and I love when music makes me emotional. I absolutely adore this song. It’s definitely a song that could only either end or start the EP because of the sound in comparison to the other tracks but it’s still a beautiful sound and it really does finish the EP off perfectly because of its placement.

Overall, I have to say that this really is the best thing that Fast Car To Florence have released and it’s incredible. It didn’t disappoint and I was pretty excited for this, and honestly I’m absolutely blown away with how incredible this is. If you haven’t listened to it yet then YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO IT RIGHT NOW. It’s incredible and I’m so impressed and proud of them for this EP. The Illusion Of Being Fair really is the best thing that Fast Car have released.

I’m going to give this a solid 5/5 lemons because I really cannot find one fault with this, it’s incredible and it really is the best thing they’ve done and I’m excited to see what they release next and if it can beat The Illusion Of Being Fair.

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
