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.

Empty Streets by Aim High

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! On today’s instalment of Grace rambles about small bands and their latest releases, we have Aim High with their latest single Empty Streets.   Now, we all know I’m a sucker for a good Aim High release, and they always put out belters of tracks!   This track features Driveways, it has a different vibe to previous tracks, but as we've spoken about before, Aim High tend to change their sound with each track, or nearly every track. Never drastic changes, but noticeable. This track is very unique, there's a lot of different tempo changes. There's a noticeable change between the verses and chorus, but it's a sound I'm here for. The bridge in the track is insane.  This is such a great track it's an impactful track. This is honestly a belter. This is such a surreal track, honestly a belter. This may not be my favourite track from Aim High but it's definitely one worth checking out and showing some love about. This is honestly such a

Pink Alligator by Those Without

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I’m super excited to be talking to you about Pink Alligator by Those Without. Now, Those Without are a band I’ve listened to for a few months and I’ve liked the releases they’ve put out. However, no previous track has got me as hyped as Pink Alligator did.   Knowing what sort of tracks Those Without put out, I was pretty excited for this release, and I had pretty decent expectations.   I want to start off by saying since this track was released, I have been listening to it constantly. Every time I get in the car I'm there putting it on repeat for my drive, everytime I go to listen to music, I'm going to be there listening to this track. I am well and truly obsessed with it. So, when I tell you that this song has blown my mind and really has beaten all expectations I had for it, I mean it.  Pink Alligator has an infectious beat to it, and it's one of the catchiest tracks to be released recently. The tempo changes between the verses a

A Spark To Ignite by Royals

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Royals again. Royals went and dropped a new EP on Friday, and I feel like it was something we all needed in our lives.  I  had pretty decent expectations for this EP judging by the 4 tracks we’ve already heard off the EP. I’ve done a full review of Worldwide Catastrophe and Jaded so I won’t be saying much about them, but I never reviewed Fair-Weather Friend and Out of Reach, so I will speak a little about them but probably not the same amount as Gone.   Anyway, the EP opens with Worldwide Catastrophe. This is an absolute belter of a track. This track is surreal. It packs a punch, it does everything you’d want it to do and more. It’s just insane. I absolutely love this track, I loved it when it first released and I love it all the same now. It’s a great song and one I still highly recommend!   The second track is Fair-Weather Friend. This was one of the first tracks released off this EP, and it is an incredibl
