The Lockdown Sessions by Embxrs

 So I haven't mentioned Embxrs yet, but here I am telling you about Embxrs. So they're an alt rock/pop band from Notts, they consist of Abi who's the lead singer, Ebony who is the bassist, Lou who is the drummer and Lewis who is the guitarist. Lou and Lewis were in Don't Forget Rupert so that's how I came to discover them, and they've released some Lockdown Sessions, so essentially they covered some songs during lockdown, and they've released a cover of Level Of Concern by Twenty One Pilots, a cover of Fall by Neck Deep and a cover of I Think I'm Okay by Machine Gun Kelly, I love all of these tracks, and if you know me you know I Think I'm Okay is one of my all time favourite tracks and it's my 5th most listened to of all time, so I thought why not review them? Spoiler alert, they're amazing. Abi, your voice is beautiful, Ebony, Lewis, Lou, you are all incredibly talented and I'm so proud of you all, I will continue to support you. 

So that's enough rambling from me, here we go! 

Level Of Concern - 

First of all, the cover is incredible. They have done such a great cover of Level of Concern, and from the first time I heard it I knew I was going to love them, and they really didn't disappoint. At the end of the day it's a cover so I can only tell you how much I like their version of the track, and honestly, it's incredible, I want to say I prefer to the original, and I will say that. I love it, it's incredible. They've done so well with this track, and the video is great because of the animals. Abi's cat is adorable, and Lewis' dog is also just as adorable. So I mean if you're looking for a decent cover of Level of Concern and you want to see a cute cat and a cute dog, then please go and listen to it, because would 100% recommend! 

I'll give the cover a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, we all knew this was going to happen. I love it! Go and show them some love! 

I Think I'm Okay - 

So let's talk about this because I have so much love for the original so the question is does it come anywhere close to it? The answer is yes. I love MGK, and I love this song, so it takes a lot for me to love a cover of a song that I love this much, but it's a great cover. Abi has such a beautiful voice, honestly could listen to her sing anything at this point. It's an amazing cover, and I love it. It's beautiful, it's well done, it sounds great, it doesn't sound dissimilar to the original. It's just an overall enjoyable cover and I love it. It's great, I mean I love the song a lot so I have to love it, but it's an amazing cover, and it proves that Embxrs have so much talent! I would 100% recommend checking this out! 

Overall, I'll give it another 5 out of 5 lemons, because it's just so beautiful and so good! 

Fall - 

Let me just start off by saying how beautiful this is, I feel blessed after listening to this. This is honestly, such an incredible cover. Is it bad that I might actually prefer the cover to the original? Like the original is good, but this cover is insane!  The talent in this band, honestly! How do they have so much talent? I feel like I'm going to end up repeating everything I've said before, but honestly, they're such a talented band, like these covers are insanely good! Would 100% recommend you go and check them out, because, I'm honestly speechless at the talented in this band. Honestly, love them so much going off these 3 covers, maybe they're jumping into my top 5 small bands... 

Honestly, I cannot give Fall any less than 5 out of 5 lemons, and if you don't understand why then watch the covers and understand why. You can't deny that they're insanely talented and deserve so much love and appreciation, so please, go and check them out!

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
