Pizza playback party and boarding the Lady A...

Last week I got to fulfil some more of my Kingsland pledges, with two trips to London for the album listening/pizza party and the canal boat.

The album listening party was brilliant as we got to hear the album in it's entirety. I was excited to hear the new songs, mainly to hear Girl With No Name as this was the song they had been recording whilst we were at the studio. Ever since that day I've had a jumbled version of one line stuck in my head and I needed to hear it again properly!

The listening party was very casual, 13 of us sat in a room with the boys eating pizza and the album playing on a loop. I managed to miss my favourite line twice as everyone was chatting so Connor put the song on again. However I missed it a third time as I was too busy telling Thomps how much I loved this certain line (and he agreed it was one of his favourites from the album) so lucky for me Thomps rewound the song to that point. I'm still unsure of the lyrics to the whole line but it starts with "through the window...." - listen out for it as it's a belter of a line!

I'm very biased towards Girl With No Name being the best on the album however Freedom is a close second! It's also so good to have studio versions of Misbehave, He's Got it Coming and Heaven Knows. It's a brilliant album that they should be proud of - I just hope that everyone gets behind them to support!

On Saturday we had our canal boat pledge, which I was a bit anxious about as I don't like boats and I was naive enough to think the canal would just be floating on the spot and not actually move anywhere....haha!

The barge actually took us on a journey from Little Venice to Camden Lock and it was really lovely! There were only four of us on board with the boys which made it a really cute trip. It was so relaxed and I've genuinely never laughed so much in my life - somebody thought it would be a good idea to film #KingslandConfessions on my phone!  

It started off serious then just got bizarre - who knew gnomes, raybans and kangaroos could be so funny?! Once I stop laughing at these videos I will put them together and upload onto YouTube for everyone :)

2015 so far has been all about Kingsland however tomorrow we're on our travels again - this time to Sheffield to see The Script! I can't wait to see a full set from them for the first time.

Hwyl am y tro ✌️
