I have to admit that I’m not the biggest pop-punk fan in the world, partly because I’m reaalllly old these days, but mainly because a lot of this scene tends to blur into a ball of inoffensive, bland nothingness.
German quintet Storyteller, however, do that thing that some pop-punk groups do that makes listening to their music a lot less painful. Putting the emphasis more on the punk rather than the pop side of things, Storyteller sound a lot edgier and grittier than your average Simple Plan-lite band – a definite thumbs up from this side!
Their new track, “Dirty Sheets,” is a decent little ditty about memories of yesteryear – usual fodder for your average pop-punk lyricist. It’s three minutes long, has a catchy chorus but, as I said, Storyteller add a little more grit to their sound to create something that, you know what, does go some way to resurrecting my interest in the pop-punk scene.
