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!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…
