EP Review: JSA





JSA are back with an EP.

JSA are a five-piece alt-rock band from Croydon. They originally formed back in the late 00's, but the band went on hiatus after a few EP's. However, the band is now back together and they're releasing their new EP on the 14th, which is this week. And I'm coming to you early with a review of the new EP 'Ghosts'.

The EP was mixed and mastered by Alan Smith.



The EP is 5 tracks long, and the first track is Everything. It's a pretty solid track, not my favourite on the EP but it's still good. It's definitely a good opener. The lyrics are beautiful and both the vocals and instrumentals compliment that.

The second track is Factory, and honestly, I love the intro to this track. It's a little more laid back than Everything, and in a way, this one gives me a sort of Busted vibe. The lyrics are great though, it almost sounds a bit like Mayday Parade in a way, which I wouldn't complain about because I love Mayday to bits. The song does pick up a bit further on in the track and it's pretty great.

Then we transition into Untitled which is mainly instrumental with the vocals virtually muted, but it's quite a good filler song. I don't have a problem with filler tracks if they're decent and this one actually is.

The second to last track is Restart, and again it reminds me of another song but I just can't pinpoint it, and it's actually quite a nice song. It's more stripped back, similar to Factory and it's actually quite relaxing. It gives me slight Taking Back Sunday vibes.

The last track is the title track Ghosts, and I think this is my favourite off the entire EP. It's again stripped back at the start, but it picks up. It's very much a classic 00s alt song, and the entire EP carries the same vibes, but it's good. It stands out from other bands and a lot of the other music on the scene.

I would 100% recommend you check it out, because you could really enjoy it. The EP comes out on Thursday, so make sure to keep a note of that and check it on when it's released. Overall I'll give it a 4 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
