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.

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
