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.

Recent Releases: Autumn Fires, Prime and The Headspace

Ahh! I'm back! Today we're talking Recent Releases again! I do need to do a part 2 to this post where I talk about Ollie Hayes and maybe a couple of others, but today I just want to talk about new singles. We're going to be talking about new tracks from The Headspace, Prime and Autumn Fires. I've been away for a few weeks because I've just been so ill recently. I've had tonsillitis, then I badly injured my ankle, and I've just not been vibing with life lately. But I'm back! Part 2 of this will be coming soon!   First up, let's talk about Autumn Fires, they dropped their debut EP a few weeks back, and I love Autumn Fires. I think they're a phenomenal band and one that have so much potential to achieve great things. However, part of me was a little lacklustre with the EP because every track besides 1 was something we'd already heard. There was only 1 new track on the EP, which I mean, thankfully, it was a new track, but it was released as a sin

Recent Releases: Ollie Hayes and Protect Your Heart

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted because I've been ill and it's been the festive season, and at this point, most people know I do try and take a month off around the festive period, but with very few releases coming out, and no gigs for a while yet, I've taken 2 weeks off between Christmas and New Year, and then I'm going to try and chill out between now and my birthday because in the coming weeks I want to be doing the 2021 Annual Lemon Awards. Not the half a year thing, the full year. A year in review, where I look at all releases from January 1st to December 31st. So, let's get these last few releases from 2021 reviewed so they can at least be a contender for the Lemon Awards.  Up first, let's talk about Protect Your Heart because that's only a single to talk about, whereas Ollie's review is an album review. So a few weeks back Protect Your Heart released their latest track "Worst Side of M

Biggest Regret (she is the worst, she is the best) by Until You Disappear

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! I know I’ve been away for a few weeks, but I needed a break. I feel like work, the blog and uni is just all a bit overwhelming currently. But I said I was going to attempt blogmas, so let’s attempt it! Let’s do a review a day and clear this back log! New bands, old bands, albums, EP’s, singles. Let’s do this!   So today let’s kick this off with talking about Until You Disappear and their latest single Biggest Regret (she is the worst, she is the best). Now it’s no secret that I love Until You Disappear. This has a bit more a punk feel to to it compared to some of their previous singles. I’m still a big fan of this track, and it’s decent. It’s punchy, and it’s impactful. It’s a great track and one that I know I’ll come to adore just as much as precious singles. This is a phenomenal track, and it’s although it’s got that more punk feeling to it than the likes of Let Go and Drunk Me, it’s still a phenomenal track and one that it’s going to appeal to a lot
