What I'm Listening To, and An Update...

 Hello, it's been a long time! Well, it's been nearly a week, but either way, that's a long time with the amount of content I've been doing recently. So, if you follow me and pay attention to the shit I post on Twitter and Instagram, then you may have noticed that I'm going to be doing small band week again, starting tomorrow! Very nervous about it, but there's some reviews, there's going to be a new Small Bands You Need To Check Out post coming, and I'm just going to be talking about small bands all week! Quite exciting for me, I love talking about small bands and I'm hoping if I can pluck up the courage to ask a few bands, I might be able to bring you some new introducing posts, hopefully! There are some bands I'd really love to work with, and I'm hoping maybe they'll be up for me doing some content. So there's that. Please keep an eye on the content I'll be posting this week, and if you don't want to miss a post then somewhere at the top or in the sidebar there should be an option to subscribe/follow the blog and I believe that sends you my posts when they go live! 

Anyway, it's a Sunday, and you know what that means. It's time to talk what bands, albums, songs I'm loving this week!

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

Sasprillo Beach by Elgra Austin

  So, welcome back to Instalment 3 of Small Band Week, now today yes, this technically is an artist you've never seen on the blog, but you've seen his band A LOT. So, Elgar Austin is actually Jay from The Mocking Jays, and he's released a solo EP. And because this is Jay, and we all know how much I support this man, I thought I'd bring you a little intro, a very light review about his EP.  Now, this EP isn't heavy in the slightest, and it's quite relaxing, it's very light and positive. The feeling you get from this EP matches the artwork. It's very chilled out, and it's pretty incredible!  The EP opens with Synthetic Villages, and if anybody has ever wondered what it sounds like in my head when I'm in a uni seminar, this is it! It gives off such good vibes, and we all know I am not the biggest fan of instrumental tracks because they often fail to keep my attention, however, Synthetic Villages is not like that. This is one instrumental track that
