THE BRAVERY / The Bravery (2005)

The Bravery is another of those New Wave Indie bands that tried to sound retro, as if the mics they used were unearthed from a 1980s vault and then dusted off, ready for reuse. They add some Electronic Pop elements to that era's guitar sound, and a heavy, funky bass. The song structures are full of repetition but most are catchy and lively enough to make it all seem passable. You'll hear some New Order in there, too, and nods to The Cure.
