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.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
