PUNCHLINE
JUST SAY YES
MODERN SHORT STORIES

Pop-punk meets piano rock is what Punchline brings to the table on their latest disc JUST SAY YES. Fortified with a multitude of sounds from garage rock ("Get Off My Train") to Ben Folds-like pop nuggets ("Somewhere in the Dark") to weepy ballads ("Castaway") to Weezer-esque rockers ("Punish or Privilege"), this quartet, who used to be on Pete Wentz's label (Fueled By Ramen) before winning a $25,000 grand prize and setting up their own label, do a serviceable job of injecting the templates of Blink 182 and New Found Glory with smidgens of indie rock pizzazz.
