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't let me down because Reflections and Lonely were just that good! 

From the first 15 seconds, this song had me gripped and I was instantly engaged with the song from the second I hit play, which to be fair, I did expect that. Alex's vocals on this track are insane, like if you thought they were great on the last two then this song will blow your brain! I swear I'm the mind-blown emoji again, if it was physically possible for my brain to exit my head then it would. I love the way the chorus is a lot louder and intense compared to the verses and that's in my opinion, how it should be. 

I love the intensity and energy within this track. It's not as aggressive as Reflections was, but it's certainly a lot more aggressive than Lonely. I quite like that, as it sets it apart from the previous two tracks, and I'm honestly really enjoying this song. It's got a really good beat to it, and I just love the entire vibe of the track. I feel like it's going to be a song that gets stuck in my head the more I listen to it because that's one thing that's been similar with all three releases from Four Thousand Miles, they're incredibly catchy songs, and if you find yourself not in love with the track, listen to it a couple more times, and I'm sure you'll be hooked on them like I am. 

I like that you can hear, both Alex's, Liam and Lionel on the track, which is a really nice touch. I like being able to hear everyone and, I also like that there's plenty of change and depth within the sound. I actually really like the lyrics, and from the title of the track, I wasn't expecting to love the lyrics as much as I do. 

When the song reaches the end, I actually feel like it's flow really nicely back into Lonely, and I think that's a really nice element to the song. 

There's a lot of good things about this track, and there's even more bits that I love, especially like the bridge. I like having that build up within a track, I like feeling tension in a song, and that's exactly what Demon on the Run does. I can feel that emotion and tension in the track, and I really do love that! It's one of the stand out features of the track to me! I think it's incredible. 

To conclude, I do really really like this song, and I feel like the more I listen to it the more it's going from liking the song to loving the song, and by the end of tomorrow I just know I'm going to be well and truly in love with it. I can also see this becoming my most listened to song of the month, it's honestly such an insane track, and I can't wait to see what comes next for Four Thousand Miles. It's insane just how talented they are, and I really do have high hopes for 4KM. 

I would 100% recommend you go and check out this track and check out their previous tracks if you've never heard of them before, and if you like them make sure you show them some love and support because they really do deserve it. They're such an incredible band, and this song really does prove just how great they are! 

Overall, I'd have to give Demon on the Run a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, just like I gave Reflections and Lonely, because it really is a song that doesn't disappoint, and it's such an enjoyable track to listen to, and I just think it's incredible.

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
