EP Review: Fatherson Acoustic



Okay, so Fatherson put out their acoustic EP a few weeks back and I felt like I had to say some thoughts on it. Because, these aren't new songs and they're just acoustics I can't judge them too heavily because it's a song I know and love, but nevertheless, I am still here to give you my thoughts on them! 

The EP is 5 tracks long and it consists of 
1. James
2. Charm School
3. Reflection
4. Making Waves
5. Just Past The Point Of Breaking 

I have actually previously said my thoughts on a couple of these songs, but we're still going to talk about it all today! 

The EP opens with James, and this is such a beautiful song as it is, but when done acoustically it's even more beautiful and it really does show just how talented Fatherson are, and just how incredible Ross' voice is! It becomes so much more raw and heartfelt. It becomes even more emotional than it once was. Ross' voice on this track is insane! Honestly, incredible! I love it! I am so completely in awe at this track! 

The second track is Charm School, which on it's own is an incredible song! It's an incredible song, but acoustically it's a whole other level. I did review Charm School and Reflections previously and they're both very beautiful songs, and their placement on the EP is great. I love it, but because, I'm previously said my thoughts on them I don't want to be repeating myself! But I do like them, and I think they're beautiful.

The fourth track is Making Waves, which was one of my favourite tracks off of Sum Of All Your Parts, so to hear this acoustic version is something else! This is possibly my favourite off of the EP, and it's honestly, incredibly beautiful to the point where it gives me goosebumps because it's just that good! I'm in love with it, and I'm so thankful for this song's existence. I could cry over this, because of how good it is. 

The EP concludes with my favourite Fatherson track, Just Past The Point Of Breaking, and this is just next level for me. I don't prefer it over Making Waves, which is shocking because it's my favourite song, but I prefer Making Waves. But honestly, to quote Jake Peralta "Chills, literal chills". That sums up perfectly how I feel about this song because it really is just that good. 

Overall, I'll give the EP a 4 out of 5 lemons. It's acoustic, so there isn't much more I can say, but it's beautiful! I really do rate the EP a lot!

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
