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.

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…
