Hailing from Isle of Wight, Reminders have just released one of the most fantastically British pop punk songs in recent memory. While most of the music you associate with as pop punk has that bratty Southern California sound no matter where the band is from, "International Dial Tone" sounds completely British. It's a song that sounds much more like a mixture of Buzzcocks and early Arctic Monkeys than Sum 41 or Blink 182. It has just enough of a punk edge to stand above most other songs in the genre but still pop enough to have mainstream appeal.
