Rites Of Spring
Label: Island Records
Pulsating synths, flashy and distraught vocals, and stomping choruses secure the Bravery a winning spot in the '80s revival pop sweepstakes. They walk close to camp on their debut but pull through thanks to their understanding of the epic pop song. Benny Benassi's remix of "Unconditional" gives it a pumping, euphoric rush.
