Album Review: Art/Facts by Prime (UK Band)

So, I've followed this band on Instagram for a while now, but this was the first interaction I'd had with them, and we all know that if a local band approaches me I'm more than likely going to say yes and do a post on them! 

So like with most bands, I'm going to tell you a little bit about the band and then we'll dive into my thoughts on Art/Facts. 

So Prime (UK Band) was a band from the East Midlands, Nusic described them as "One of the best live bands" and that's a pretty flattering title to give a band, 

The band consisted of 
Lee Heir: Vocals
Chris D Bramley: Guitar and vocals

For Fans of: Oasis, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, David Bowie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers

So sadly, Prime announced they would be ending their journey as a band, but that doesn't mean you can't still support them and show them some love! Whilst their music is out there you're very capable of being able to do that! So please do! Anyway, into my thoughts on Art/Facts.

So the album opens with In Summer which is a great opening track, it's got a good rhythm and it's a happy sounding track, the same can be said about the second track Bye Bye, they're good songs, they're not my favourite tracks, but they're good, and the placement on the album is great! We then move onto the third track titled To Be or Not To Be, which again, sounds good, it's got a decent rhythm, it sounds quite funky. This track feels like it packs a bit more than the previous tracks, and overall it's a good song. The next track is I.O.U, this is more comparable to the first two tracks, and the overall impression at this point is that they sound 70s inspired, that's the only way I can think to describe the tracks. No Sign of Life is again comparable to the other tracks, and that's not a bad thing because they all flow nicely from one to another. Up next is Free N' Easy, which again, doesn't sound dissimilar to the others, but I think to this point it's one of my favourite tracks on the LP, it's softer, which is quite complimenting. Like The Weather comes on next, and this to me is the standout track. It's got more of a beat to it, it's slightly louder, it's more rock vibes rather than indie. Flatline follows on in the footsteps of the previous track, again it has more of a rock sound rather than indie, which I do thoroughly enjoy, and it's that which makes these tracks stand out to me a bit more. Take Me To Your Crew, again, is similar to the previous track and again, it isn't a bad thing. It's quite a refreshing sound, it's more like 70s rock, and it's great, this does sound like the classic bands like The Clash and The Stones. Now, on the approach to the end of the album we reach White Boys, White Noise. It reminds me of a similar sound to Fight For Your Right (To Party) if it was slightly softer, which again, it's nice and refreshing. Second, to last is actual a remix of Bye Bye, obviously, being a remix it sounds very much like a more modern, softer variation of EDM. The last track is Teen TV, but a live version of it. At this point, it becomes apparent as to why Nusic ranked them as highly as they did, clear vocals, a good beat, and a pleasant listening experience. 

Overall, I'm going to give the LP a 3.5 out of 5 lemons, it isn't my favourite LP, but it isn't my favourite genre, however, I can see a lot of people really liking it, so if you're looking to listen to some new music then go and check them out, and appreciate the music for what it is!

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
