Hand Me Downs (Mac Miller) by The Mocking Jays




So with their new track dropping in less than 2 weeks the boys are back to give us another little treat, this time it’s in the form of a cover of Hand Me Downs by Mac Miller. 

It’s a lovely song to start with, but The Mocking Jays have really given it the justice it deserved! Jay's voice on this cover is something else. 


I always say anything that the lads in TMJ do is beautiful, but you don’t have to be a fan to realise that this cover is something else! It really is beautiful. 


I have always said that the boys are super talented and that Jay has a lovely voice, that still stands, and for them to take a song like Hand Me Downs by Mac Miller and cover it as well as they have, shows that. 


Some covers don't live up to the original, but this cover is honestly such a good cover! I didn't actually expect the cover to be as good as it is, and I also didn't expect to love it as much as I do. Of course, I knew I was going to love it, but the level of love I have for this is insane! It's honestly, so good and I really do highly rate it! I adore it a lot, and it's a damn good cover! 


Honestly, well done boys! 


There isn't much more I can say because it's a cover of a song, but I love it, and I think you should give it a listen and check it out, and if you're new to the world of TMJ then please go and check out their music, because they're one of my favourite bands and they're incredibly talented!

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
