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 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋

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
