The Dark Romantics "Heartbreaker"
Florida-based quintet The Dark Romantics lives up to its name, with the music on the band's sophomore album, Heartbreaker, being both melancholy and shelved under track titles like "Love and Pain," "The Death of You," and the title track. Yes, it's all a bit melodramatic, but everyone's got an angry teenager inside of them, and sometimes synth-pop needs a little doom and gloom. This is the sort of stuff UVA students will throw on when sitting in their dorm rooms reading Edgar Allan Poe.
