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!

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
