Copeland is a melodic indie-pop band from Florida that, for some reason, fell in with the Warped Tour crowd in the early-to-mid 2000s. While Copeland's mascara-smeared peers pogoed and preened on Hot Topic-sponsored stages, singer Aaron Marsh used his brittle falsetto to craft piano ballads and pop-rock tunes that came across as more tender than overwrought. Though the band officially broke up in 2009, it reconvened in 2014 to record and releaseIxora, touring only occasionally.(Safe bet)
