Single Review: Wide Awake by Hear Lies

Okay so yes, I have another band on the books now... but that's all good! I was actually approached by Sam Christmas (Best Of Enemies) about doing this post, and as soon as I heard the track, I knew I had to do it! That's when you know it's a good song! However, because Hear Lies is a new band to the LifeIsALemon squad, I will be doing a combined song and band review! So let's get into this!
HEAR LIES

So Hear Lies are a four-piece rock band, that consists of the following
Orion Powell - Vocals
Glenn Rice - Guitar
James Macdonald - Guitar
Jake Holmes - Drums
FFO - Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, You Me At Six
So let's talk about this new video for Wide Awake!
Wide Awake was the fourth track on their EP, and they've just TODAY released the video for it! And all I'm going to say is, it's amazing.
The video reminds me of the likes of Stay by Mayday Parade (if you've seen that then it's just as heartbreaking). It's this heartbreaking mini-film style video, that really just makes you super emotional, however, I can now watch it without crying (after a good 30 times). It's such a beautiful, moving video and I think it really does do the song justice. I always get sceptical when I review a new band because I worry about if I dislike the content, however, I had nothing to be worried about with Hear Lies. They're an incredibly talented band that really do deserve some love and affection, all their links will be listed below for you to go and show them some love on!
I absolutely adore the song, and it's quite a catchy song considering it does wish to break your heart which is just lovely! I don't want to spoil the video, but it's very moving, and it's worth the few minutes that it takes to view it!
Overall, I'm going to go with a 4.5 out of 5 lemons. It's a solid video, and I look forward to keeping an eye out for anything else they decide to put out in the future. The video does offer a lot, which is nice because I get bored when watching a music video that doesn't offer me anything!

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
