Pinpointing my core taste in music is an incredibly tall task. I cannot broadly say that my favorite genre is punk; though, I do enjoy occasionally listening to the Clash, the Ramones, or the Sex Pistols. I also cannot connect with the mundane label of pop punk, as I have not yet fallen into any binge listenings of Green Day, Yellowcard, etc. Granted, Blink-182 is right for a specific angsty mood, but the genre as a whole does not encapsulate my taste.
Currently, “Post Punk Revival” is my most promising working point. I like to think of this genre as a distant ripple from the original punk movement. Its core is still energetic, still somewhat avant-garde; however, it is not as culturally identifiable as prototypical punk. I enjoy the music, but I am not going to cover myself in piercings, leather, hair gel, and what have you. Post-Punk Revival builds around a certain ominous sound that simply makes you want to fall into rhythm with the music. What follows is my small attempt at helping you understand just what the genre entails.
