A Sound Similar To Mox Pox.

Below is a link for band Joy Divison - She's Lost Control. I believe Joy Division have a similar sound to Mox Pox.

Joy Division happen to be a band that which Josh, lead guitarist and myself both enjoy to listen to. Although I was unable to access the video I orginally wanted to use 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' I think the song and style of the video will influence the way I create my music video as it is this kind of style I wish to follow.

"Joy Division rapidly evolved from their initial punk rock influences to develop a sound and style that pioneered the post-punk movement of the late 1970s. According to music critic Jon Savage, the band "were not punk but were directly inspired by its energy". Their self-released 1978 debut EP, An Ideal for Living, caught the attention of the Manchester television personality Tony Wilson. Joy Division's debut album, Unknown Pleasures, was released in 1979 on Wilson's independent record label Factory Records, and drew critical acclaim from the British press. Despite the band's growing success, vocalist Ian Curtis was beset with depression and personal difficulties, including a dissolving marriage and his diagnosis with epilepsy. Curtis found it increasingly difficult to perform at live concerts, and often had seizures during performances."

This is a fan base website I found which has been created for the band;

Their target audience seems to be for an older audience, which I believe will benefit mox pox as it shows they have a more mature approach to their music as apposed to a typical pop teen band like Mcfly who are specifically targeted at a younger, less censored audience.
