As always, I’m not going to be biased. I’m looking at this from my music blogger POV rather than a personal POV.
Close To You by The Mocking Jays
So TMJ have just dropped a new song… Close To You.
I will not say that this is my favourite thing they’ve released. But it’s still good.
It had a similar sort of vibe and sound to it as Kiss My Neck but saying that they are both love songs. So maybe that’s why.
However as I said it isn’t necessarily a bad song. I mean who doesn’t love a little love song?
As always I will say that the music video does compliment the song and I mean who doesn’t want to see Jay embracing his inner emo with the eyeliner?
If you were more of a fan of the sound of Kiss My Neck than the likes of Edge Of Your Knife or you just want to listen to a little cheesy love song well then Close To You is for you.
It’s definitely a song that’s grown on me. I’ve became more of a fan of it with each listen so if you do listen and you find it mediocre listen a few more times and then judge it.
I will say it’s 100% a catchy song. Like I’ve had it stuck in my head since it was released. And yes like always I listened to it at midnight on the 8th. The minute that was out I was listening to it as I always do. And it is a good song, I can see a lot of people loving it. I can see this being a good song for The Mocking Jays. In the same way that Kiss My Neck was.
It’s also dropped at the perfect time considering this week is Valentines Day.
I know this hasn’t been the longest review I’ve done but I’m currently struggling to write a lot.
The Mocking Jays have also announced that they are releasing The Love Era which is their first studio EP. And that is set to be released on the 9th of March the same day as the EP launch show at The Bodega in Notts.
The song definitely meets my expectation. I’ve heard the song love quite a few times and it met my expectations.
Overall I’d give Close To You 4 out of 5 lemons.
