Isley Walton - The Mocking Jays Live Session

So yesterday (Wednesday 1st) The Mocking Jays released a live session of Isley Walton. This is from last May, but we get George content here, and that's a big thing since it's been a year since we last saw George perform with the band. 

It's Isley Walton, so of course, it's going to make you very emotional, and if you're me you're probably in bed crying over it because it's so beautiful. 

I love this song, and I will always love this song. This version of it is just insane. The raw emotion in Jay's voice, and the fact we have Mr George Ramplin on piano... perfection. This was the content we all needed, and it doesn't stop there, because the boys actually have a new song dropping at the end of the month! It's been so long since we had new TMJ content, so to get a new song and this live session is exciting. I am completely in love with this live session, and honestly, it may be the best live session that's been released in lockdown. 

It's an incredible version of the song, and the fact that it's a full band performance makes me even more emotional. I have no idea why, but it's so incredibly beautiful and I cannot process how music this has given me a whole new love for the song. It's just so beautiful, and for it to keep my attention for the 6 minutes it lasts for, says a lot. Honestly, I cannot even put it into words just how beautiful it is, if you thought the original was beautiful, then this is a whole other level of beautiful. 

The only thing I will say is that, like with every other live session I've heard in lockdown, it's making me miss gigs. I miss gigs a lot, and hearing this live session of Isley Walton really has me missing seeing the boys every time there's a weekend Notts gig. I miss it so much, I miss them so much. And this live session just reminds me of that, but it's beautiful and I've missed hearing Jay sing songs. So I'm very happy about this version, even if it is an emotional song, it's beautiful. 

Honestly, go show the boys some love, and go and hear this beautiful version of Isley Walton, and get ready for the new song!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
