the emo to dance rock transition

The Faint was one of the first bands I remember that did this – the transition from emo to dance rock and Brandtson is one of the latest bands to make that jump. The first time I encountered this band, I had to review their second album – which was very emo. Now they have a new album out – their contract ran out on Deep Elm and they signed with another label and in that transition gained a new bassist who had his own synth band and incorporated his style with theirs. Now they are a dance rock band with a dance song about people not dancing – which totally hasn’t been done before
