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.

Single Review: What You Want by Home Wrecked

Home Wrecked have just released their new single What You Want. Spoiler alert: it slaps. Home Wrecked are a relatively new band to me, I only discovered them about 2 months ago, but I honestly love them! One of my favourite things about this track is the progression and depth in the sound. It sounds on the heavier side of pop-punk whilst also sounding very classic pop-punk at the same time. There's just something about it that's unique and that sets them apart from the rest!

It's a very catchy track, and it's a song that's going to be stuck in my head when I stop listening to it. It sounds heavy whilst not actually being that heavy, but I love that. I would compare it to Four Year Strong and Chunk! No Captain Chunk! and in that retrospect, I guess I'm branding it as easycore, but it's so good!

I find it quite refreshing to hear this song in the pop-punk scene when a lot of bands are switching to a more mainstream, poppier sound, which isn't bad, but it…

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.…
