The Bravery: The Bravery
Buy! - (Island)
Like the Killers, this New York band specializes in stylish, New Wave dance-rock that’s studded with enough great hooks to forgive the huge debt they owe to bands like New Order and the Cure (lead vocalist Sam Endicott even sounds eerily like the Cure’s Robert Smith at times). And while their catchy blend of synths, guitars and dance beats is reminiscent of the Killers, the Bravery’s sound contains more of a grimy rock edge than their Las Vegas counterparts. 3/25/2005 - Don Yates
