As you can tell by my previous post, I really love this song, and I was expecting a lot from the video and you know what, it actually delivers. I don’t know what these boys have in mind for their next album but if this is the sound they are going for they will have a whole new market eventually. Well, at least once everyone gets over the fact that it is One Direction and thinks about the music instead.
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.
