Band Review: Left Hand Lane

Left Hand Lane are a small, local Notts band. They're in the same scene as some of the other bands I write about including, The Mocking Jays, Don't Forget Rupert and Distant Blue and that is how I initially came across them. In this post I will give my thoughts on their new single Skank, but I also want to heavily concentrate on this being a band review. Also before I dive too deep into this, I just want to say a massive thanks to Pearce for making this an easy blog post for me, as he was really helpful and co-operative and he was actually the one to approach me about doing this blog post!

Okay, so Left Hand Lane are a sort of alt rock sort of band, but they also have HEAVY punk elements to them, I don't want to call them punk rock because they're alt rock, but they do have some punk roots there.
FFO- "For fans of anyone who enjoys music, we don't really aim for an audience. We gig a lot and the people who enjoy seeing us come back and watch us again" ~ Pearce
The four-piece consists of ;
Jimbo- Lead singer/guitar
George- Guitar
Pearce- Bass
Bobbi- Drums
Now onto my opinion of the band, okay so they aren't my favourite Notts band, it's really no secret who that is, however, they're definitely up there! Anybody that knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for all types of alt-rock, it's my go-to genre. And I do like their sound, it's definetly growing on me the more that I listen to Skank, but I can't be too critical as everybody has to start somewhere and Skank was their debut single. And I do enjoy it, it's probably about a 4/5 for me, and I am really excited to see what else they put out later. I'm excited for what other music they may have to be released, and I am intending to catch them live later this month. As I'm back into the swing of going to gigs more often than I have the past few months, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to offer as a live band. I do already have some expectations for their live performance because 1. I've seen Pearce perform with Distant Blue and 2. Their sound makes me think there shall be a fair bit of energy within their set, but I guess it's just a matter of waiting and seeing what they have to offer.
Overall I’ll give them a 4/5 lemons and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on what else they get up to.

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
