Neon Trees

The Strokes' influence sings in bands like Kings of Leon and Phoenix, but the most homogenized take on NYC's brat kings has to belong to Utah's Neon Trees, whose debut Habits bears criminal similarities to 2006's First Impressions of Earth. It could be innocent, as four years seems a likely cultural timeline between Manhattan and the band's hometown of Provo, and there is no denying their songs are singalong catchy with tons of teen appeal. But there is something wholly distasteful in their stylized approach. Fauxhawks, anyone?
