I Don't Want To Be Touched by Chris Ang

 
So, a lovely person called Chris Ang emailed me following my post on Hawthorne by Small Talk. and he (being friends with Small Talk.) asked me if I was willing to do a post about his track I Don't Want To Be Touched. This is a very raw track, it's a song that's topic may be triggering for some, but Chris' story is his to tell not mine, and if you go to the video and read the description you'll read his story, and understand the meaning of the song. What you're imaging the song is about (rape) is actually what the song is about. So, if you find that triggering in a track then please don't feel like you have to listen to the song, but if you're willing to give it a go then please do. I've added that in, just in case it is a trigger for someone! 

Anyway, before I get into the review, I just want to make you aware of something that Chris is doing on Monday (24th August). So, Chris is part of a emo karaoke group called Everything Is Alright and they are hosting a Zoom fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds will be benefitting PATH San Diego which is dedicated to helping the homeless in providing them with food, clothing and shelter. The event will be called "When We Were Young Folk" and the karaoke theme is indie/alt music. You can find the Facebook group here!  Again, no obligations but if you wish to check it out you can! 

Moving on to talking music, I honestly think Chris has a lot of talent and potential and for him to write and put out a song like I Don't Want To Be Touched takes a lot of courage. To turn something traumatic into art is incredible, and I have so much respect for people that can do that! 

This song is very raw and emotional, and although it isn't my favourite genre I can appreciate the track, and I do think it's a really good song. I also think it's nice to see a track that talks about this sort of issue, turned into a song that sounds like this, because normally from my own experience with songs about this sort of topic, they don't tend to have the same vibe and fit the same genre that this song does. It's got a mixture of different genres within it. It's a rap song, but it's also got more indie elements within it as well, and it's a combination that works really well. It's a sad song, but it doesn't sound sad which is a lovely thing to come across. 

I think it's a very unique track, and Chris has done it very well. I do think it's a good song. I do think it's a very mood dependant song because of what the song is about, the context could be a big trigger for anybody that's been through that sort of things. However, I do think it's nice that Chris has turned his story into a work of art. It's a good way of expressing what happened. So, if you think you won't be triggered and you're intrigued please do give a listen and check it out! 

I'm going to give it a 4 out of 5 lemons, it's been done really well, it puts something traumatic into something beautiful which is incredible to see. There's plenty of change and depth in all possible aspect in the song, I do think it's a good song. 

Chris does have another song called Love Drug out now, and there is more music to come soon! So make sure if you're interested that you check out his other music, and keep an eye open for when he drops music again!

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
