Ever since the demise of Atom and His Package, there has been quite the rising of quirky as dancy synth driven music in punk. Sure, I guess you can argue it started with New Wave, but those were the 80s, and everyone was smoking crack then anyway.
Team Robespierre’s melodies tend to be a lot darker than many in this genre as heard on tracks such as “Laika” and “Solid Gold”. That doesn’t mean the songs aren’t catchy as hell, and they even dip into the more melodic territory with the jesus-christ-this-is-gonna-be-in-my-head-all-fucking-day “Ha Ha Ha”.
The music is fun, and good if you just are looking for something light hearted. I personally find that there’s a lot of crap in the whole dance punk genre, but Team Robespierre is definitely worth checking out.
