Contemporary Dance-Punk

Dance-punk was revived among some bands of the garage rock/post-punk revival in the early years of the new millennium, particularly among New York acts such as LCD Soundsystem (and their label, DFA Records in general), Clinic, Death From Above 1979, Liars, The Rapture and Radio 4, joined by dance-oriented acts who adopted rock sounds such as Out Hud, or Californian acts like !!!. In Britain the combination of indie with dance-punk was dubbed new rave in publicity for Klaxons and the term was picked up and applied by the NME to bands including Trash Fashion,New Young Pony Club, Hadouken!, Late of the Pier, Test Icicles,and Shitdisco forming a scene with a similar visual aesthetic to earlier rave music.
