DOWN AND OUTS: Forgotten Streets: CD

The Down And Outs play British pop punk with more punk than pop, so it’s a wee bit edgier than one would normally expect from such a sound. The choruses tend to be more influenced by the street punk sing-a-long motif, so there’s actually a more diverse sound at second and third glance than mere “pop punk.” Very solid, but not remarkable.
