The Ghost Of My Empty Glass by Distant Blue


THE LADS ARE BACK! Yup, Distant Blue have returned and have decided to bless our ears with an absolute tune and a half! I feel very lucky to be able to bring you my thoughts on the track ahead of its release TOMORROW! I'm telling you when this drops tomorrow YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO IT! 

Before we get started, I just want to let you know, that the lads have told me they've been in the studio and there's a whole new mantra of music coming, there are various tracks in the making! And to be honest, that's pretty exciting especially if The Ghost of My Empty Glass is anything to go off of! I am 100% here for it! 

So the first 10 seconds or so, I was kinda liking it, didn't really know where it was going, but I was here for it, and then Ed decided he was going to kill me with his vocals, and that was it, I knew this was going to be one hell of a tune! 

Straight off, I love that there's change and depth within the sound which everyone knows at this point is essential for me, because I like music to keep me engaged and wanting to listen to it on repeat for days, and Distant Blue know exactly how to do that, they never disappoint. But, this track is something else! I love that you can very clearly hear Ed, Pete, Kieran and Jack. Nobody is drowning the other out. I love that so much! 

This is one of the most energetic and intense songs I've heard in a LONG time! I am obsessed. I really can't put it into words just how mind-blowing this track is. Distant Blue are really proving themselves to be one of the best bands out there. If you aren't following them and supporting them, then you need to go and check them out. They're one of the best bands out there and this track really does prove that. 

I know Distant Blue are my joint-favourite small band, but I really do mean it when I say this track is insane! If there is only one song you listen to that I've spoken about in the past month, make it this song. I honestly cannot believe that Distant Blue really made this. The talent in this band is surreal, and you need to be listening to this song when it drops tomorrow. 

The chorus on this track is mind-blowing, and the lyrics! EXTRAORDINARY! I swear Distant Blue may have just made the best track of the year. I didn't think it was possible for them to top their previous releases, but they somehow did. 

There really aren't enough words in the English language to explain just how incredible this song is. It truly is a masterpiece. This track proves that Distant Blue know exactly what they're doing, it shows just how incredibly talented they all are, and it proves that they deserve to be one of the biggest acts in the scene currently. This song is just so loud, intense, it's catchy, it's everything you could want in a song and more. I honestly can't process just how insane it is! 

I honestly cannot recommend this song enough, you NEED to be listening to it and hyping it when it drops tomorrow. No if's, no but's, you NEED to. I am well and truly in love with this track, and it is the best song of the year to date. I doubt much could top this though, it really is just insane, so well done lads! 

Now, it's time for the bit only the band cares about. Now, I always tend to give Distant Blue a solid 5 out of 5, but this song is better than any previous release, and therefore I have to give it a solid 6 out of 5 lemons (but for the few that won't accept that as a real rating 5 out of 5 lemons, the band can decide which one they go with). I honestly am so blown away with this track, and the talent the lads have! Honestly, it's insane! Well done lads on making an absolute belter of a track. I'm so blown away by this song, and I can't wait to see what comes out next!

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

Where To Start with Supporting Small Bands...

  Hello, welcome back, or welcome if you've never been here before!  Anybody that knows me, follows my socials and reads this blog will know that I am a massive fan of small bands. I don't like music snobs, I really cannot stand them, and it's really important to me for people to support small bands.  Whenever I tell people I know, or on Twitter some bands to check out, I always say the same bands, I add to that list when I find new bands, but I don't talk about all them bands here on the blog. Therefore, I wanted to make a post, dividing up bands by genre, giving you some top picks of their songs, and telling you ways you can support small bands that actually mean more than just streaming their songs, as we all know it takes a lot of streams for a band to see any money from that.  So, if you want to support bands, try and buy their merch. Granted, not all bands have merch that you can just order, but quite a lot of them do. If you can buy their merch, buy their merch.
