EP Review: Brighter Roads by Seasonal

I'm so excited to be writing this post because Seasonal are one of my favourite bands currently. 

The EP opens with Damage which is such a great opening track. I feel like you can always judge the excellence of an EP or Album with the opening track and Damage hits the spot! It's got an incredible set of lyrics and it kicks the EP off in the right way, it's such a beautiful, loud track and it does leave you wanting more.

The second track is Roads, which is a little more pop-punk and angsty sounding than Damage, but boy does it slap! It's again got some incredible lyrics. It's loud, it's a song that could easily entertain a crowd. It's a song that you want to have a bit of a mosh pit to, and scream and just live your best life at a gig hearing it. 

They don't have a bad song and this new EP is no different. It slaps! So let's talk about these tracks! 
The third track is St Luke's. I think this song is my favourite off the EP, it just kind of hits somewhere that I like songs to hit. It's softer than the previous two tracks, but it's still a nice song, it's still got a decent rhythm to it. It's the sort of song, that if I'm not stable I will cry to but it's one of those songs where the sound doesn't seem sad, but it's the lyrics that hit you and it's like wow okay, going to cry for an hour now thank you. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever known, and I'm going to put it up there with Whispers by Twin Atlantic and Caro Padre by Deaf Havana. St Luke's is the standout song for me, it's the one that makes me want to feel every emotion possible, and it's that reason I'm putting it as my favourite off the EP. 

The EP concludes with Happy, it's again, loud, edgy, the sort of song you want to be hearing live and screaming to, but I think I want to scream this entire EP at this point. But, Happy summarises the entire EP in my opinion "singing sad words to happy songs" that is the Brighter Roads EP summarised by the band themselves. But I love it, it's got emotion, and I do enjoy music to have some meaning no matter what it is, I like it to mean something and for it to be emotional even if that's just a little bit of emotion, and this EP brings so much emotion and it's happy songs with raw lyrics. It's beautiful. It's a work of art. It's a masterpiece. It's one of the best EP's of the year! So go and listen to it! Show the lads in Seasonal some love, show them some support! They truly deserve it and they constantly put out bangers, so go listen to Brighter Roads! 

Overall, it's a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, and just listening to that EP will prove to you why I believe that. So please, love it with all your might! Show them some support, and support all your smaller artists in these difficult times!

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

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
