Single Review: Was That Kiss Meant For Me? by The Publics

So this song has been out for just over a month now, but I just haven't had the time to write a post, so here we go.
The Publics are a local Notts band, and I've got to say the song is doing incredibly well on Spotify, with them having near enough 2000 monthly listeners and the song having over 4000 streams, and to say it's only been out just over a month and it was their first song it's doing really well.
The Publics are an indie rock band, and the song gives me a mixture of Sex Pistols, The Jam, Catfish and The Bottlemen and Arctic Monkeys vibes.
It's not a bad song, I can see the appeal and it's a sound that's pretty popular currently. If you are into those sort of bands and like alt and indie bands then The Publics could be perfect for you.
It's definitely a sound that I'm hearing a lot more currently, but Was That Kiss Meant For Me? is in no way a bad song, it's a song that I personally wouldn't reach for the most, but I'd still willingly listen to it. But that's just down to personal preference when it comes to them not being something I'd necessarily gravitate towards.
I like the lyrics, I kind of like the sound it's something I would listen to, but not something that would be my first choice. The one thing that makes me not like it as much as I could, and the reason why it doesn't sit as high as it could with me is how the drums are very overpowering in comparison to the vocals, and there's just something I personally don't like in songs, a lot of bands do it, it's just not something I like though. And maybe if that wasn't the case then maybe I could like the song more. I will still keep The Publics on my radar though. If that wasn't the case with the song though being dominated by the drums I would probably like it a lot more because the sound isn't bad, the sound is pretty good, it's just the dominance of the drums and how it almost blocks out the vocals.
I can see why a lot of people would love it, and I do recommend checking them out, and if you like the sound then they're playing The Maze in Notts on the 26th of February, which is next Tuesday.
Overall I'd give it a 3.8 maybe a 4 lemons out of 5. Because personally it isn't my favourite thing, but from like a blogger perspective then yeah, it's pretty good. You know it's catchy enough and lyrically I like it, so go check it out if you wanna check out some new music,

Check back next week, at the usual time for my opinions on Fast Car To Florence's new EP.

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
