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, I said in my review of Coffee by Good Hustles that it takes a lot for me to pick the drums as a stand out feature for me on a track, but Caleb is too good of a drummer to not pick up on his skill. The drums are definetly at the forefront of this track, and they're at that intensity where if they were any louder then it'd be overpowering, but it's not. 

The musical elements in this song are truly something else. The guitar riff in the bridge is insane! I swear, it could blow my brains out with just how incredible it is. I love it. I think it's insane to see a small band making songs this incredible, and not being one of the biggest bands in the scene. 

I do want to come back to what I said earlier about Brodi's vocals. They're just insane! Brodi's vocals blow my mine every time, because his voice is phenomenal! He's got such a powerful voice, and it really suits the music that Nautical Mile make, and I'm just so blown away by the talent! Honestly, what a band! 

I actually quite like the lyrics to this track as well, and the chorus has been stuck in my head since Friday. I can't get over just how incredible this track is. I always hype up Nautical Mile, but please, if you haven't checked them out already, listen to this song! Purgatory is just so intense and it's honestly a tune and a half! This I truly believe, is my song of the year. I know I said that about Coffee, but Purgatory is just insane! 

The way Brodi says "Come get me" in the chorus is like that 11 second bit in Sweet Tooth, that's Purgatory's equivalen. We all know it takes a lot for me to put anything on the same level as Sweet Tooth, but it's just incredible! I can't find one flaw with this track. It really is flawless, and the fact that Nautical Mile aren't one of the biggest bands in the scene shocks me. 

So, I do think this song is incredible, it's mind-blowing. I really do think Purgatory is my song of the year, and I don't think there's enough words to describe just how this song makes me feel. I love the energy and the entire vibe of this track. It's so intense, but in the best way possible. It truly is a song that only Nautical Mile could do for me to love it the way I do. 

We all know Sweet Tooth and Spin The Bottle are my favourite Nautical Mile songs, and currently Purgatory isn't on that level, but it's on the same level as Marionette, which is a very close second favourite for me, so I think that's saying something, but the more I listen to this track the more I'm falling in love with it! I just love it! I love the energy in it, and I think it's insane! 

Overall, I do have to give Purgatory a solid 5 out of 5 lemons, I'd go as far as to say 6 out of 5 lemons, but not everyone accepts that as a real raitng, so Nautical Mile can decide which one they want to go with. I honestly do love this track, and I cannot wait to see what comes next for Nautical Mile! I'm rooting for them to achieve big things, and no matter how big they get I'll always be here supporting them, because they truly are one of my favourite bands of ALL TIME! I love them! So please, go check them out, show them some love and support, and spread the word about them because they're insane! They really are!

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi
