Lemonade by The Mocking Jays

The boys in the band are back! They're back with a new song! A song that's never even been played live, so this has been incredibly exciting for me! I've been waiting for this for so long! To put it into perspective, it's been 319 days since I Can't Be (Without You Love) was released! But, the wait has finally come to an end and we have a new song! So, let's get into this! 

Now, we all know that I would sell whatever I have left of my soul for this band! So by default, I love everything they put out, and we don't talk about my 5 tattoos and the crippling realisation that I want more... so, of course, I have a lot of love and admiration for this (even before hearing it). I knew from the small clip that had been posted on their socials that this song had potential, and I was intrigued by it from the get-go, and I wasn't disappointed. 

I don't know what I was expecting from it, but whatever it was, it wasn't what we received! What we received was so much better than expected! 

Jay's vocals on this track are something else! Like, wow! I can't even put it into words just how incredible this song is! It's honestly a masterpiece, and I'm so incredibly proud of them! It's just such a great song, and it's quite catchy. I'm putting it straight up there with some of their best songs! It's 100% up there in the top 5 for me! I'm completely in love with this song! I really do rate this song! I can't recommend it enough, honestly, if you haven't heard it yet, or you're new to the world of The Mocking Jays then go and give Lemonade some love! 

This really is a flawless song, and it proves that TMJ just keep getting better and better. The sheer talent in this band, Jay, Lewis, Alex, Sam you're all so incredibly talented and I'm so proud of you all. You're all really out here killing it! 

I also love the lyrics to this song, it's honestly such a great song! It's so insanely good, and if I don't listen to anything besides this for the next month I'm not even sorry! 

I seem to be saying this a lot, and it's becoming the rule that a song needs to have depth within the sound, it needs to have something in it, it needs to change and not just be the same throughout, and this song does that! It's got the depth and the change that I desire in a song, and I'm honestly so blown away with this song! I really do love Lemonade! 

Expect this song to be mentioned in the lockdown music awards that's happening in just over a week! 

Honestly, well done boys! You did that, you really did that! Well done! Incredible. 

So, please go take a few minutes to go and show the boys some love and support on Lemonade, and if you're new to the TMJ hype, go check out all their other songs! They're great, I love them so much! 

The important bit, the final verdict! It really is an incredible song, and I love it! I cannot process just how great this song is! You already know what I'm about to give it, and if it shocks you, then I don't know what you expect from me! Overall, Lemonade gets a solid 5 out of 5 lemons! Because, when life gives you lemons make lemonade... I could make a very bad pun there, but I'll spare you that!

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

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

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
