The Snorts – DORK FACTOR

The Snorts - DORK FACTOR

The Snorts capture something special on “DORK FACTOR,” something that typically appeases critics and excites the kids. 

Good punk-inspired rock is a little like taking an intrusive selfie of you and your friends having fun. You think you’ll have many opportunities to do it, but if you don’t act on it, it’ll probably be gone forever. 

A good impression makes or breaks these kinds of records. The Snorts announce themselves as a mess of anxious energy from the scribbled artwork and opening track “Walking into Walls.” It’s modern pop-punk with a sprinkling of chaos. 

“Loggerheads” allows the band to pace itself, providing a gritty, grunge-inspired ode to young disorientation. 

But just in case they might’ve lost you in a daze of self-reflection, “Heart, Attack” comes crashing right back in with an almost hardcore-punk rhythm. “Message on the Machine” leans into the band’s gift for open, exciting melodies. 

In case that won’t be enough to play the entire audience of a DIY punk show, The Snorts also have a pop-punk power ballad up their sleeves, the song “Turn the Lights on, Plz.”  

Just in case The Snorts may have given you the wrong impression, leading you to believe that they are more composed than they actually are, album closer “Hold on, One Sec” reveals the weight of their uncertainties.  

The Snorts are revving it out while they’re figuring it out. In fact, most bands that play this kind of pedal-to-the-floor music only manage to get it once. The Snorts may confound expectations. They are already on their second release. Still, don’t take history’s warning lightly, and enjoy the band while they have this kind of firepower.
