Hot Chelle Rae's 2009 debut album, Lovesick Electric, features the Nashville band's propulsive and radio-friendly emo and post-punk-influenced dance-rock. Showcasing the talents of vocalist Ryan Keith Follese, guitarist Nash Overstreet, drummer Jamie Follese, and bassist Ian Keaggy, the album also features production from alt-rock masterminds Butch Walker and Eric Valentine. These are engaging, melodic, danceable, and passionate songs that bring to mind the yearning emo-pop of Metro Station along with the '80s-influenced dance-rock sound of the Killers. Lovesick Electric includes the singles "I Like to Dance" and "Bleed."
