Live Review: The Mocking Jays at Beat the Streets

A.N. Before I get into the post I just want to apologise for how shit this may seem but honestly, I'm grieving. If you follow me on Twitter you might know that my aunt passed away on Tuesday so this wasn't at the top of my list of priorities. Thanks 





This was my 15th time seeing The Mocking Jays, so at this point, you'd think that it's getting boring and repetitive, but that is 100%, not the case. Every time I see TMJ live there's always something to make you laugh and smile about, and I don't think I will ever get sick of seeing them lads on a stage.

So this time, they were playing at Rough Trade which I do actually enjoy as a venue because it's small, and it's all up close and personal gigs in there.

There were 3 new songs (2 of which did get their debut on the headlining tour back in October) and going off them 3 songs, I am really excited in the way that they're progressing and the direction they're taking with their music. I would definitely say that now is the time to get on the hype because I have faith in them achieving great things, and it only takes half an hour of watching one of their sets to see that.

The chemistry and energy they have on that stage is next level.

The setlist was-

1. I Need Emotion

2. The Seen

3. Take You Home

4. Sex On The Beach

5. Funny Bones

6. I Can't Be (Without Your Love)

7. Bad Guy (Billie Ellish cover)

8. New unnamed song

9. Tears In Summer (Encore)

The setlist was pretty solid and honestly, cannot complain about anything. They always outdo themselves with each show that they put on, and with each show, they put on they improve, and I'm super proud of them, and it really was a great set and I'm not just saying that because Jay dedicated ICBWYL to me for my birthday, I'm saying that because they deserve so much support and they put on a great show every time I see them, and I can't wait to see them again because I don't think I'll ever stop supporting them.

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

Where To Start with Supporting Small Bands...

  Hello, welcome back, or welcome if you've never been here before!  Anybody that knows me, follows my socials and reads this blog will know that I am a massive fan of small bands. I don't like music snobs, I really cannot stand them, and it's really important to me for people to support small bands.  Whenever I tell people I know, or on Twitter some bands to check out, I always say the same bands, I add to that list when I find new bands, but I don't talk about all them bands here on the blog. Therefore, I wanted to make a post, dividing up bands by genre, giving you some top picks of their songs, and telling you ways you can support small bands that actually mean more than just streaming their songs, as we all know it takes a lot of streams for a band to see any money from that.  So, if you want to support bands, try and buy their merch. Granted, not all bands have merch that you can just order, but quite a lot of them do. If you can buy their merch, buy their merch.
