Live Review: The Mocking Jays at Radfest 2019

So on Saturday the 22nd The Mocking Jays headlined Radfest and spoiler alert. It was incredible.



It was their second show without George and my first show without George. The fill-in is actually Ed from Distant Blue and all I’m going to say is it was amazing! I was very sceptical because I absolutely adore TMJ and I do adore Distant Blue as well, but I was worried that it wouldn't sound the same, but it actually sounded better (RIP George). The way that Jay and Ed's vocals complemented each other, and the fact that Ed's voice is slightly rougher just added some more depth to the songs, even in songs like Close To You and Tears In Summer, they gained a lot more depth audibly because of Ed's vocals. I honestly loved their set so much more than I anticipated, I always enjoy TMJ sets but with Ed being there it just added so much to the band! It could well possibly be the best TMJ set I've heard.
They opened with Funny Bones and closed with I Can't Be (Without Your Love) and in between played all the solid bops like Kiss My Neck, Sex On The Beach and Close To You.
It was such an amazing set, and I mean Jay was proper enjoying himself on stage, climbing up things and everything... honestly. It was an amazing set and I did really enjoy it, and it makes me very excited to see them again although that won't be until October. It was such a good show though, and I really do like Ed performing with the band and I hope to see that again at some point as it was amazing.
The boys in the band never disappoint, and it was just incredible. They just seemed to have more depth in the songs at the show, and I really did enjoy it.
Out of 5 lemons?
I'd have to give it a solid 5 out of 5 sparkly lemons because it really was just that good!

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
