I have actually been a fan of OneDirection since they debuted on Xfactor in the UK, and I have quietly supported them through all their same sounding singles, but now they have given me a reason to not be ashamed of my love for them. ‘Story of My Life’ has a very folk/indie sound to it, which is actually quite amazing. Channeling a bit of Mumford and Sons in way, but in a more pop-ish way, ‘Story of My Life’ is a huge step forward for the boys.
I definitely see this song coming on the radio and people falling in love with it, and then finding out it’s OneDirection. If they keep in this kind of direction, rather than the bubblegum pop they have been doing, they could be around for a very long time.
