It's like the Rosetta Stone of streaming music, it speaks to everybody's personal music language. As such, trying to define it seems futile. It's a bit alternative, I suppose, and a little bit rock. But really, no matter what you like, you should at least give it a try. You might not like it, but if you don't, you'd be the first.
