Is light dark enough?

I discovered the UK's Joy Formidable through one of those late night sessions scrolling through Hype Machine looking for new music. I think I clicked on the link to one of their songs based on their name. I'll repeat their name. "The Joy Formidable." Sounds intriguing, right?

Their myspace states their sound as other/other/other but I think it's kind of a dance-rock, guitar-heavy sound. Not like the dance rock of Metro Station that's so common nowadays. More like the kind of rock that you could dance to on British Music Night at the Mod Club, but with a slight Smashing Pumpkins Gish-Era noise. It's cool.
