While front man Sam Endicott acknowledged that the Bravery "intentionally made each song a dance song" on its self-titled 2005 debut, "The Sun and the Moon" shoots a bit wider.
"This one was more about anything goes; whatever comes out, we'll just roll with it," Endicott said. "If someone wrote as low song, cool. If there's a rock song, cool. There's even some acoustic songs.
"So stylistically it's a lot more eclectic. We weren't limiting ourselves in any way."
The quintet recorded the album in Atlanta with producer Brendan O'Brien.
