There are few genres that are as infectious as pop punk. If you like it, you pretty much live for it. Anytime a newer band shows up in the pop punk arena, it’s met with excitement, worry and an almost unbearable nostalgia. Callback Holly is the next promising act for pop punk fans.
The single “Sophia” brings up all of those feelings. With vocals like Bowling for Soup, instrumentation like Boys Like Girls and a song about a girl, “Sophia” sounds like a brand new pop punk anthem we’ve needed. The lyrics are young and catchy, the guitars are open and optimistic and the drums propel the song forward into the next run of the chorus. Though songs in this genre have a way of becoming irritatingly repetitive, “Sophia” is never monotonous. It ends stuck in your head, leaving you psyched for a full-length album.
