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.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
