EP Review: MYMINDISOUTOFME by Distant Blue




The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived, and Distant Blue have finally dropped their highly anticipated debut EP.

The EP opens with Tongue Tied and yes, this is a song we've heard before but it's a song we all love!
I have previously voiced my opinions on this track and I'll happily voice them again.

I LOVE IT.

One of my favourite things about Distant Blue is how well they pull off their sound. Some bands can't always pull off the sound they're trying to be, and it makes me really happy when a band can pull off that sound, and Ed's voice is perfect for the sound.

I don't want to focus too heavily on the songs that have already been released because I don't want to be repeating myself, and there are some SOLID new songs on the EP!

The next song is Lucid Liar (Novocaine) which again I've voiced my opinions on. Again, I absolutely love it. I think it's a solid song, and lyrically I love it so much. I love Ed's vocals, and I really do see Distant Blue achieving great things. They're a really good pop-punk band and this song showcases that perfectly.

The next track is called Blue Noise and it's exactly that. It's simply just an instrumental track. But as filler tracks go, it's actually a good one, I'm not saying my deaf little ears want to listen to it on repeat, but it's a filler track and it's actually a good filler track. As filler tracks go, I'd put it on par with Serious Underground Dance Vibes by Twin Atlantic, and that is possibly my favourite instrumental track.

The fourth track is Come and Join The Party and I remember hearing this live at Dot To Dot. And the studio version definitely does it justice. It isn't one of them tracks that sounds completely different to the live version, and I actually really like this track. I'd go as far as to say it's my favourite off of the EP. It's a solid track and I'm actually in love with it. It makes me quite happy hearing the track cause it's just such a solid song!

The final track is titled Opiate which of course my little emo, addicted to pills, heart loved this before I even heard it. It's another solid track and I can't criticise any of the tracks on the EP because they're all amazing and I love them all to bits. They're all bangers, and this track is no different. It's got a good flow to it, and it makes me really excited to see them live again!

Overall, it's a solid EP and I cannot recommend it enough. You 100% need to go and check it out, and overall? It's getting a solid 5 out of 5 lemons 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
