Single Review: Close To You by The Mocking Jays

As always, I'm not going to be biased. I'm looking at this from my music blogger POV rather than a personal POV.

Close To You by The Mocking Jays
IMG_0206(Click to go to the music video)
So TMJ have just dropped a new song... Close To You.
I will not say that this is my favourite thing they’ve released. But it’s still good.

It had a similar sort of vibe and sound to it as Kiss My Neck but saying that they are both love songs. So maybe that’s why.

However as I said it isn’t necessarily a bad song. I mean who doesn’t love a little love song?

As always I will say that the music video does compliment the song and I mean who doesn’t want to see Jay embracing his inner emo with the eyeliner?

If you were more of a fan of the sound of Kiss My Neck than the likes of Edge Of Your Knife or you just want to listen to a little cheesy love song well then Close To You is for you.

It’s definitely a song that’s grown on me. I’ve became more of a fan of it with each listen so if you do listen and you find it mediocre listen a few more times and then judge it.

I will say it’s 100% a catchy song. Like I’ve had it stuck in my head since it was released. And yes like always I listened to it at midnight on the 8th. The minute that was out I was listening to it as I always do. And it is a good song, I can see a lot of people loving it. I can see this being a good song for The Mocking Jays. In the same way that Kiss My Neck was.

It’s also dropped at the perfect time considering this week is Valentines Day.

I know this hasn’t been the longest review I’ve done but I’m currently struggling to write a lot.

The Mocking Jays have also announced that they are releasing The Love Era which is their first studio EP. And that is set to be released on the 9th of March the same day as the EP launch show at The Bodega in Notts.
The song definitely meets my expectation. I’ve heard the song love quite a few times and it met my expectations.

Overall I’d give Close To You 4 out of 5 lemons.

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

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

Killing Giants by Holygood

  Holygood are back! After what seems like forever, but in reality, hasn't actually been that long Holygood are back and they've released their 4th track of the year. This time, they're back with a new vibe and sound whilst still sounding very much like classic Holygood.  Now, Holygood's last release was Better Off Before which I still listen to a lot! I think it's the best song they've released, and it really is just an incredible track. However, because Better Off Before was as good as it was, I felt very reluctant about new music, because like I've said in posts on other bands, when the previous release is so incredible, how can a band really top that. That's my main thought when going into this track, is it as good as Better Off Before? Can they really top that release?  The intro had me a little confused, and very sceptical of what was about to happen. It's definitely got a lot of rap elements/influences within it, but that's not necessarily
