New In Notts: Fast Car to Florence and Near Mrs

So, we're back with a new in Notts post, since both Fast Car To Florence and Near Mrs have blessed our ears once again.

Fast Car To Florence 

Cry isn't officially released until Friday (28th February 2020) however, it is up on YouTube if you want to listen early, and I'm trying to keep on top of all these blog posts, so we're going to be talking about it today.

So this is officially the start of the new era of Fast Car To Florence, but I still love this band so much! And we shall continue to support FCTF here until either this blog ends or the band does because they were the first Notts band I worked with, and it's because of them that I found all these other bands I work with now, so thank you Fast Car for making my dreams more of a reality.

So, this isn't a whole new song, there's no adjustment needed. It's like Address The World but better. This is honestly such an incredible song, and from the first few seconds, I knew I was going to love it. Isaac has such a beautiful voice and I say that every time it comes to FCTF or his solo music, but he does. This song is actually quite upbeat like a lot of FCTF songs, but it's catchy, it's going to be stuck in your head and you're not going to be angry about it. You're going to be thankful it's so catchy. It's going to be stuck in your head for the next week, and honestly, it's just such a good song. It flows well, it doesn't sound out of place. It sounds like a piece of art, and that's what it is, Cry is a piece of art.

Isaac stated about how this song is about the human connection to music, and it is honestly such a relatable song. I'm someone that struggles to express how their feeling so I normally explain it with songs, and it does perfectly summarise the relationship we have with music. It's a song that is meant to relatable and because of that, it's beautiful. It's a song that I feel like the industry lacks, a lot of songs talk about personal struggles, but not many talk about music and the relationship we as people have with it, and in that retrospect, it's similar to This Song Saved My Life by Simple Plan for that point alone. Music is the soundtrack of our lives, and I can think of many moments in my life that a certain song plays in my head when I relive the memories, just because it was that feeling.

I also quite enjoy the music video, yes okay, it doesn't tell a story as such and it's more of a performance video, but if you're putting out a song about the relationships we have with music, then I don't think anything else would have been a better fit. I also quite like the aesthetic of the video, and I would say that it's a perfect way to start the new era of Fast Car To Florence, so why not pre-save, or watch the video now, and see how much you enjoy it, and see if you enjoy it as much as I do.

Overall, a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, although, I don't think we'd expect anything less for FCTF.

Near Mrs

When I saw Near Mrs live, this was obviously on their setlist, and I licked it then, and I like it even more now. I think it's an amazing song, I think it is a very catchy song, it's very upbeat, makes you wanna sing and maybe even dance to it. It just makes you feel good, and that's what makes it beautiful. It's a song that I'm definitely going to be listening to a lot, and I hope you do too because it's a decent song. I cannot fault it.

It's indie, it's nostalgic, it's got a good beat to it, it's funky, it's upbeat.

There are a lot of indie bands out there, but there's something about Near Mrs that sets them apart, they have a unique sound that can't be found with a lot of other bands. I think this is a perfect song to showcase the talent that Notts has, and how incredible the music scene is.

I've heard Catch Of The Day both live and on a studio recording now, and there isn't much difference, obviously live always feels different, but it's actually a song that sounds as good live as it does on recording and not all songs are like that (which is something I've learnt over time).

I really do rate Catch of The Day, I think if you want a new song to listen to then there should be no hesitation there, just do it. Listen to it, show Near Mrs some love. Promote the song, tell people you know to listen to it. Enjoy it, embrace it.

I've got to admit, it's probably on my top 10 songs this month already because I've listened to it that much. It's just one of those songs that's enjoyable to listen to.

Overall, it's getting a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, I really do love it that much!

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

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

Killing Giants by Holygood

  Holygood are back! After what seems like forever, but in reality, hasn't actually been that long Holygood are back and they've released their 4th track of the year. This time, they're back with a new vibe and sound whilst still sounding very much like classic Holygood.  Now, Holygood's last release was Better Off Before which I still listen to a lot! I think it's the best song they've released, and it really is just an incredible track. However, because Better Off Before was as good as it was, I felt very reluctant about new music, because like I've said in posts on other bands, when the previous release is so incredible, how can a band really top that. That's my main thought when going into this track, is it as good as Better Off Before? Can they really top that release?  The intro had me a little confused, and very sceptical of what was about to happen. It's definitely got a lot of rap elements/influences within it, but that's not necessarily
