MOVING ON (SELF-RELEASED)
JARROD ALONGE-BAITING POP-PUNKS SHOW SERIOUS PROMISE ON SECOND EP
■ 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.
