copses and cardboard boxes

Browsing through DARTZ!’s profile on Last.fm, I noticed that many users have voted bands like Good Shoes, The Maccabees, The Holloways, Bromheads Jacket, etc. as their similar artists. I am very confused by that because I don’t hear any similarities between those bands and DARTZ! at all. The only common denominator is that they are all British bands... WTF people, you can’t group bands into the same category just because they are from the same country! Nonetheless, when I listen to This is My Ship by DARTZ!, I think of Taking Back Sunday and From First to Last because of their call and response vocal style; and their up tempo pop rock music reminds me slightly of Hot Hot Heat and The Futureheads. I can write forever on how fun and catchy this band is; but I won’t because the bottom line is, unless you are an emotionless downer, I can say with confidence that This is My Ship will make you dance!

I hate this band therefore I don't dance to them, does it mean I am an emotionless downer?
