Single Review: Reflections by Four Thousand Miles



Now, this is their second track. I reviewed Lonely when that came out, and I adored that song so I had high hopes and they exceeded all expectations. I've been so excited about this release since they announced it, this track is so mind-blowing and earth-shattering. Like did Alex have to go that hard with the vocals? No, but did he? Yes.

My mind is honestly so blown with the level of perfection this song is. This is the sort of song I need in my life, like for as long as Four Thousand Miles exist I think I'm going to be a tad bit obsessed and have a lot of love for them. Every opportunity I get to work on one of their tracks I'm going to do it, because this band! They're so talented and they got so much potential! The music they're dropping is insane, I know we've only got two tracks but they're blowing my mind.

So we start thinking, okay this is a decent song, got a good beat, nice and engaging, and then the chorus hits and I'm telling you they didn't have to go that hard but I'm so glad they did. I love a lot of music, but it's not as often that music makes me excited, but Four Thousand Miles makes me so excited! If this doesn't become one of my top 5 most listened to tracks this month I'll be shocked, because after about 5 listens I've become obsessed, and I just know that the more I listen to it the more I'm going to become obsessed. I mean I think my love for this song is very evident since it's been out less than half an hour and I'm already writing this post, although this isn't going up yet. This song is going to be the song I tell everyone they have to listen to because it's mind-blowing, but I did that with the last track, and I honestly think I'll continue to do it with every track they release. I've already got so much love for this band and they only have two tracks!

I also want to say that I love the lyrics to this track, there's some lines that have hit me in places I hate to be hit but also love when a song hits there. As the chorus echoes "You stole the greatest part of me and now I'm struggling to breath" I'm here nearly crying because of the pure talent. Whatever you're doing go and pop this track on, and let it blow your mind at how talented this band is! If you haven't heard Lonely nor read my review go and do that too, you can find it here!

This song has put Four Thousand Miles in my top 3 when it comes to my smaller bands, and in all honesty, I'd probably put them in my top 5 overall of all bands in existence, and that says something for me because that's a very solid list, but this band is just so talented and the energy their songs project is insane! They're the sort of songs that would be insane to hear live.

Overall I'm giving Reflections a solid 6 out of 5 lemons, I'll go as far as to say the most elite ranking I give which is 6 out of 5 sparkly lemons, but for a more professional look we say 5 out of 5 but it really is a 6 out of 5 because WHAT A SONG! WHAT A BAND! Go listen to it right now! No excuses I want to see you all listening to this track and loving it.

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
