Powerspace, 'The Kicks of Passion' (Fueled by Ramen)

5
The Kicks of Passion
Critical Mass
Label: Fueled by Ramen

by Trevor Kelley

Like Panic! At the Disco, this hyper Chicago foursome is being groomed as the next teen-scream crossover from thriving indie Fueled by Ramen. Unlike their glitzy labelmates, however, Powerspace not only apply fluttering dance pop to their hook-heavy emo, but also add a shot of late-'80s hair-metal bravado. The combination has a flashy charm, but it also results in songs like "Dancing in the Future," a disorienting rocker that changes tempos so often it may inspire you to bang your head -- if only against a wall, out of frustration.
