Double Lined Minority: White Flag review

If it wasn't hot enough here today I have a band from the awesome sounding Gold Coast Australia. 
This is 4 piece Pop-Punk band Double Lined Minority and their song White Flag

Straight away it's a smashing piece of clean cut, well produced pop-punk. Staring off a guitar riff I might think as a little heavier, with a drum beat that has me doing a very bad impression of a drummer and banging me head. So barely 20 seconds in and it's showing a fantastic originality I've heard more pop-punk bands than the Winchester brothers have died but Double Lined Minority have put a new spin on it and honestly as a genre of music I didn't think I could love it anymore, yeah I was wrong. As for the song it's self it's fast, it's got a beat that I can't sit still and listen, it's catchy that I find myself humming it long after I've stopped listening. Vocally it switches between two people, mainly Eddie but with Cameron taking over at times too, it's a good mix of different voices and styles of singing. Lyrically it's catchy, it's very quick after hearing it that I'm singing along I'm not really sure what the lyrics mean but they're not meaningless. It's like All Time Low's Backseat Serenade in I love the lyrics but I'm not 100% sure I know what you're talking about. It is very well produced it's not often I can everything so well, from the vocals to the bass line I've heard top 40 songs with worse production that this I'm not gonna lie. 

Altogether Double Lined Minority have crated a unique style and a fantastic song to boot! If I had to compare it to something (and I really had to think about this) it would be All Time Low's A Love Like War  as it's a slightly heavier piece of pop-punk.
I can't wait to hear more of these guys, and if you do actually live in Australia I'd advise going to see these guys live because White Flag makes it sound like it would one hell of a good time!
