A.N. Hi! Yes, I’m back, I know I’ve been away from a few weeks, probably near enough a month. Some stuff has happened and frankly I just needed a break from blogging. However, I’m back and you have to put up with some slightly less exciting posts for a few weeks, but I am attending Beat The Streets this year, which means there’s gonna be some live reviews. I might do a week of live reviews or I might just do one long post. Haven’t decided that far ahead currently. But if you wanna read about stuff that’s happened the link to my personal blog will be at the end.
Bands To Look Out For in 2019!
If you are any sort of reading of my blog, or you see me on Twitter, then this one is not going to shock you. You can probably already guess who it is… wouldn’t be a post written by me if I didn’t.
The Mocking Jays because when don’t I plug the boys? TMJ are a Notts band, they’re like a pop rock band, bit heavier than McFly, but we ain’t talking rock band here. It’s like The 1975 and McFly had a love child and it was TMJ. But they have songs that are completely opposite to each other. Like Edge Of Your Knife is heavier than Kiss My Neck but I can’t bash that song, because it’s my favourite and… we’ve all seen my tattoo…
If you haven’t listened to the boys yet… what are you doing? 2019 gonna be a big year for them, and you don’t wanna be sleeping on the blessing that is TMJ. There’s so many posts on this blog about them, so if you wanna read more, then just have a look at some of my older posts, there’s plenty about them! They also won best overall band in the 2018 lemon awards, so…
The next one, again is on the entire trend of Grace loves Notts bands. But it is my local music scene so…
Don’t Forget Rupert I honestly love DFR so much. Like they’re so good, and I’m pretty hyped to see them again, because I miss them. I have two other posts on them, and they’re just so good. They also won best overall band of 2018 in the lemon awards. They’re more on the alt rock sound, which mean, anybody who knows me knows I kinda have a bit of a thing for alt rock bands… but honestly, you kinda need to listen to them if you haven’t already because they’re so good, like Get Fucked is an anthem.
Another Notts band you should show some love to is Distant Blue. I promise this will be the last Notts band I put on here. Distant Blue are definitely more of a pop punk band, but I do highly recommend them. They’re so incredibly good. And I do wanna make an effort to see them in 2019. If you ain’t listened to them yet, and you like pop punk go do it.
There are so many more Notts bands, but I have a post on some of my favourite Notts bands so go and check that out for some more.
Putting these on here, because I love them and they’re incredible and I still remember when Blair was DMing me on Twitter about my blog… loved that moment. Anyway… Stop The Rain. STR are a Scottish band from Perth, very much taking influence from another Scottish band *cough* Twin Atlantic *cough*. If you like Twin then you have a good chance of liking them. Absolutely love them, and I wished they’re come down my way or that I lived in Scotland, but sadly Scotland for a band is a bit far… we don’t talk about that one plan… we don’t talk about it.
Another band is 100% Best Of Enemies who are from London area, and they’re another alt rock band, who I did do posts on before, and you know what? I wish I still hyped them up like I used to because they’re so good! Would say if you like Deaf Havana (because that was how Sam originally descirbed their sound to be) then you have a pretty good chance of liking them, but I mean classic Deaf Havana… not Rituals… they’re sooo good so go and check them out!
I could go on and on and on and on, but frankly, they’ll be more posts throughout the year, so I won’t ruin them all. And if you do want any more recommendations then find me on social media.
