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 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
