My Thoughts On Songs From The Past Few Months, Are They Still Good?

In the UK we've been in lockdown since the 23rd of March, now with the world starting to gain some normality again, I thought it was about to time that we talk about all the different music that's come out during lockdown, as a lot of releases were pushed back because of the pandemic so for the first two months not much came out so, I thought I'd update you on some of the releases I've reviewed. In a few weeks, I'll actually be posting a little lockdown awards post, so it's pretty much the Lemon Awards but just for bands that released music in lockdown, and I will include any music that's come out since the start of lockdown to the date that I post The Lockdown Awards. 

So, let's get into this. This, in theory, is me telling you if I still stand by my opinion on all of these songs and see if they lived up to the hype I once gave them. So let's get into this!

Small note - no songs that I've reviewed in the past 2 weeks will be on here because they're still new and fresh, but I may make these posts a regular thing where I can check back and tell you if these songs are still good! 


During lockdown, Holygood blessed us with three incredible tracks, all of which featured on here, and got praised a lot. We had, Animal, Louder Than Words and Better Off Before. I still absolutely love them! I think they're incredible, and since their release, they've continued to be in my current most listened to songs. I still find myself reaching for them so much, my favourite is still Better Off Before, I just don't cry over it anymore. But they're all incredible, and beautiful songs. I would still stand by my ranking of 5 out of 5 lemons. 


Downcast released Catharsis back in April, and when I reviewed it, I thought it was incredible, and it was one of my most listened to songs. I still stand by that. It's an insane song, and I'll still give it a 5 out of 5 now. I find it so hard to skip it, it feels impossible! Honestly, such an insane song! Love it! 


The boys in Seasonal gave us an EP, and I loved it, and I love it even more now than I did when I reviewed it. St Luke's makes me cry like a baby, Happy is a tune and a half! Damage and Roads are incredible. Honestly, I'd rank it even higher than I did before now. I just love it. Seasonal are becoming one of my favourite bands, they're just insanely good! I've got so much love for them! They're just incredible! 

Four Thousand Miles; 

Now, we all know I absolutely worship the ground this band walks on. I would sell my soul for this band (just don't tell the other bands I'd also sell my soul for), and they released Reflections back in April. I love this song so much, and I'm itching for a new 4KM song, I'm so ready for it. I love reflections, I love it even more than I did back then, and "You stole the greatest part of me and now I'm struggling to breathe" is still one of my favourite lines. And, Reflections could be the song that makes me get a 4KM tattoo. I still stand by my rating of it. 

Distant Blue; 

Back in April, the DB lads released Whatever Makes You Feel Safe and it's still not Opiate and Come and Join The Party, but it's one of my favourite DB songs. It's just so intense and loud and it makes you want to lose your shit to it! I adore it, but did we really expect anything less from me because it's Distant Blue. I still stand by the rating I gave it! 

Sam Christmas; 

Sam released his first solo song Closing Time a few weeks ago, and, I still love it, it's such a beautiful song, and it's still in my most listened to currently, it's just so beautiful and I still think that it makes you feel the same way as drinking a cup of tea on a gloomy day. I still stand by my rating of it, and I still recommend you listen to it if you haven't already! 

Home Wrecked; 

Home Wrecked have released two songs in lockdown, and I still rate These Days, but I'll follow up with my thoughts on that one in the next one of these as it's still new and fresh. However, White Lightning! I don't think there's been a day since it's release when I haven't had it stuck in my head and the number of times I've just randomly screamed: "Looks like I'm overdue white lightning striking you!" is something else. Honestly, White Lightning is a staple for me now, it's class. It's just so good1 I hands down still rate this, and I might even think more of it now than I did then! WHAT A TUNE! 

Left Hand Lane; 

Left Hand Lane released their song My Confession a few months ago, and I loved it, and I still do. I think it's an incredible song. I think it's great, I still love it and it's still a song I love to listen to. I still stand by my opinion on it, and I still rate it highly. I think it's great! I love it. 

There are a lot of other bands and songs I've reviewed on here, but they're the smaller bands, and if I was to update you on every song then we'd be here for a long time!

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
