Playing smooth post-punk with electronica influences, not unlike Bloc Party, the Bravery are known primarily for their highly publicized 2005 feud with the Killers and that year's single "An Honest Mistake," whose video evokes the Smiths on Prozac and caffeine. The New York quintet's second album, 2007's The Sun and the Moon, is less glitchy and synthy and more guitar-driven than 2005 debut The Bravery, but not amp-straining, Arctic ­Monkeys-style guitars; it's a step away from mere Cure mimicry and into actual original-songwriting territory. While it hasn't propelled them to the level of someone like, say, Interpol, they're still firmly in head-nodding mode with the promise of growth and, if you're tipsy and they're playing "Time Won't Let Me Go" just right, a mighty blissful moment.
