A Review of Self Titled Album by Some Kind of Illness - 28/09/16

Some Kind of Illness are an alternative indie band formed in Farnworth by brothers Mark and Paul Hinks.

Last year, the band played over 100 gigs in some of the most iconic venues in England including; Manchester Academy and The Cavern.

The self titled album includes 10 tracks plus 9 bonus tracks and was released on 11th June.

I listened to the album and instantly reminded me of The 1975's album, in the personal sense that I was able to listen to that album from start to finish, over and over again and almost turns it into a story. 

My favourite tracks of the album were; Angel Breakdown, The Light and You Have to Laugh. The were all different but with the same elements that fitted together in order to make it a successful album. I also enjoyed listening to Magic Leaf that features the bands lovely niece Daisy. I like how some of the tracks don't even need lyrics to show off this bands talent. It is just nice to be able to listen to music itself. It gives the album such a chilled, easy listening vibe.

I also am loving the album artwork. The simplicity makes it inviting and almost paints a picture in your head of what the meaning of this album is.

This is an amazing album that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to and as a side note, I would like to express how nice it was to work and be contacted by the band. 

This album is avaliable on

Some Kind of Illness are also playing at Manchester Academy on Friday 21st October
