Woodhands
Remorsecapade
By Jessica Lewis

Ever have a former significant other disappear and then come back with a new, hotter, superstar mate? The superstar yearns to go to a dance club, but it still has that unmistakable, gritty edge. And yet, you are jealous for a reason other than revenge: you want to be them. On Remorsecapade, Dan Werb and Paul Banwatt get past their first wave of confidence from 2008’s Heart Attack to find an even stronger one. Werb’s voice and Banwatt’s drumming have become a force to be reckoned with, eschewing all ex-flames. Werb fills the space with his newly multiplied synths and Banwatt finds a way to put his fascination for electronic percussion into the acoustic. Their formula pushes the boundaries of dance rock, convincing it to go places that mainstream artists never visit. At the end of the night, everyone’s sweaty and their heartbreak has been mended with a few dance moves. (Paper Bag)
