Angst and pop-punk go hand-in-hand, much like hardcore and douchbaggary, or Bloodstock and B.O. While the palm-muted riffs and bouncy choruses give the impression of frivolity, just listen to the lyrics and it’s a very different story. Yes, this is a heavily tried and tested formula, but hey, it works. Nottingham five-piece Catch Fire (formerly known as Layby) pretty much follow this method to the letter, but listening to them feels so damn refreshing.
