Twin Atlantic Are Up To Something?

As you may or may not be aware Twin Atlantic have been being cryptic again, which always tends to mean new music and we did get it.

It came in steps, but we got what we all wanted.

So if you're unaware Twin Atlantic are an alt-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. They're my favourite band, I have so much love for them, and their last album was released on the 9th of September 2016, so this has been a long time coming. I've been waiting so long for the new Twin Atlantic era.

For a week, Twin was being cryptic, which is what they always do when new music is on the horizon. For the week starting the 7th of October, they started posting cryptic videos all with a different number.

It all manifested on Friday the 11th of October when they posted that the new song was called Novocaine. That was when the numbers started making sense, if you were to type out Novocaine on a keypad on a phone, the number it would produce would be 0668622463. They then posted a link to their website, and if you typed in the number you heard a small snippet of the song... easy to say I did this a fair few times because new Twin Atlantic was what my heart needed. From those few seconds, I knew I loved the song. It was incredible, Sam's vocals were so powerful and Twin had not changed their roots.

On the 15th of October, they announced that on the 17th the new song would drop, and boy was my heart ready for it.

When Novocaine dropped I felt my soul leave my body because I'd waited so long for it and it had proved to be worth it. In my opinion, the song was a mixture of all the previous albums combined into 3 minutes. It even beat The Chaser for me, although that will always be a cult classic in my opinion. Twin Atlantic proved that the wait was worth it.

They also annoued a UK tour in which I should hopefully be going to and crying my eyes out because it's been so long!

Music I Used To Like That I Now Think is Overplayed

I was given this idea by my friend Amy, and I'm here for it because there's a lot of bands and songs I used to love or still do but I think is slightly overplayed.

There is no tea or shade here, I simply just think it's overplayed.

- As It Is. I'm sorry, I love As It Is but when they released their last album I felt like it was so overplayed and overhyped.

- Waterparks, again I love Parxs and their new album is good, but I personally don't get how hyped they are like they're good but there's better bands in my opinon.

- With Confidence, again, I used to like them then all the controversy happened so I was like no I won't stan anymore, but people still really hype them and I don't get it.

- Moose Blood, very controversial band aren't they, but I see so many people hyping them and stuff and I'm like, wow no. Let's not, not technically overplayed, but they're definitely overhyped

- Yungblud, there's some songs I like, but way over p…

Single Review: Out Of My Mind by AVAERA

So AVAERA are here and they’ve released their first single!
The used to be Stop The Rain but they rebranded and I’m here for it because If you know me then you know Stop The Rain had a special place in my heart.
But the new single is out and it slaps!
The new single is titled Out Of My Mind and honestly yes. What a tune!

I've been obsessed with it since it came out, and we all know I'm a sucker for a good Scottish band because Scottish accents. So, let's talk about this track.

It's got a proper catchy tune, and it's one of the most infectious songs I've heard in a long time.

It's one of them songs that once you've heard it once, you have to listen to it another 100 times before you can take a break from listening to it.

It's currently my most listened to track, and that says a lot because there's been a lot of newness recently.

It's a perfect song, and I don't often say that a song is perfect, but Out of My Mind is very much perfection.…

Live Review: The Mocking Jays, Kid Amelia and The Rupees

So on the 12th of October, The Mocking Jays headlined Rescue Rooms on their first UK Tour, and of course, they had to play a show in their homeland of Nottingham. So let's go on the magical journey of what went down!

The first act on was The Rupees and we all know, I'm honest here, so yeah I didn't expect to like them, I'd listened to one of their songs and I wasn't overly hyped to see them live, but they put on a pretty good performance, and I was happy to see them live because seeing bands live gives myself the opportunity to give other bands a second chance. They weren't my favourite act of the night, but I was glad they were there because they did kick off the gig well, no they're not like Twin Atlantic level, but they're still good. I will talk more about my opinions next week when I bring you a band review, but they were a pretty decent band live.

Overall, 4 out of 5 lemons.

The second act was Notts band Kid Amelia, and what a show. They definite…
