■ WHEN PORTSMOUTH mob High Down ran into trou­ble with famed Youtu­ber Jar­rod Alonge, it sur­rounded the for­mu­laic na­ture of the genre.their pre­vi­ous sin­gle, not fea­tured here, had been ac­cused of rip­ping off Jar­rod’s self-de­scribed rip-off of pop-punk. Dur­ing the on­line scuf­fle, the band be­gan to dis­tance them­selves from their straight­for­ward sound.with Mov­ing On, High Down have made an as­sertive de­ci­sion to do just that, though they clearly re­tain their love of the genre with no de­sire to push at the bound­aries. Even their bio men­tions their com­bined love of pizza and cold beer, and team­ing up with an undis­closed fe­male vo­cal­ist on the ad­mit­tedly en­joy­able Res­cue Me seems noth­ing short of com­pul­sory in pop-punk terms.yet Mov­ing On shows se­ri­ous prom­ise, and will un­doubt­edly please lovers of that straight­for­ward sound.
