The post-punk revival is a development in alternative rock of the early 21st century. Allmusic argues that rather than a revival, the history of post-punk was more of a continuum from the mid-1980s, with scattered bands. Music critic Simon Reynolds noted that bands like The Rapture and Franz Ferdinand were influenced from the more angular strain of post-punk. In the wake of this attention, existing acts like Yeah Yeah Yeahs were able to sign to major record labels. Their style has been described as "an art-rock trio who made an edgy post-punk, dance floor-friendly racket.
