Live Review: The Mocking Jays (Round 14)

The Mocking Jays live at Osfest

So The Mocking Jays played Osfest and they were phenomenal as always!
They played all the solid tunes like Kiss My Neck and Edge Of Your Knife sadly we did not hear Take You Home though although, Jay did inform us that it shall be remaking a return to the setlist soon!
The weather was intense so it was perfect for a festival outside. The drive was also intense but the things I do to see the boys in the band. I couldn’t recommend seeing TMJ enough. They really are one of the best live acts that I've ever seen. the energy that they put into their performances is next level, and there’s always something to make you smile and laugh during their sets! so if you can make sure you get to a date of The Triangle Tour! Make sure you see the boys play some solid tunes, and also they’re releasing a new song in under 2 weeks! So get excited for that.
The Mocking Jays are one of the best bands you could see live and if you want to see them live then i would 100% recommend it. they’re such a great band and they really do get you hyped for the set I do 100% recommend seeing them live.
It was also George's last gig with the boys so it was quite emotional but it's fine! He will be missed
Overall I'd give the performance 5/5. As always. it wasn’t my favourite time seeing them but that’s just because it was a festival and there’s always gonna be the Notts venues like Rescue Rooms and Rock City that I'll prefer them playing but that’s personal preference. they were amazing as always.

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is!
