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
