'With an average age of 20 you would not be blamed for underestimating this band. It seems however, that these boys thrive on being the underdogs, familiarising the extra ordinary, and utterly enjoying every new challenge that comes their way..and by God don't they step up to the mark?' - Dan Diamond
'The Mocking Jays fun take on indie pop certainly comes across in ‘Too Close’. The track has proven a hit for them with BBC Introducing East Midlands and their enthusiasm for it resulted in the Nottingham four piece bagging their first national radio airplay last year. It even took 9th place in the most played artists on BBC Introducing East Midlands from over 600 songs, including many signed acts. And did we mention they’re also sitting at No.1 in the National Reverbnation Indie Chart and 32 globally?! Not bad, eh?' - The Unsigned guide Feature Reviews
'I particularly liked the way they blended guitar chords together into some really grabbing sounds. Their uplifting rhythms hade tons of traction and the kind of determined dynamics that make the songs dance. They kept up the momentum, poering their tunes with plenty of punch and pulling the audience into the action. The mark of a good band is that if you see them once, you would want to go and see them again. I would certainly want to see The Mocking Jays again' - Trevor, Music in Leicester
'These guys are everywhere at the minute, and if you haven't seen them before you are in for a treat. I've seem them from when they first started to where they are at now and they are one of my favourite local bands. Ladies and Gents, welcome to the stage, The Indie Kings in Nottingham and your new favourite band, The Mocking Jays!' - Daniel Ison, Nottingham Sound and Promotion
