An emo album with an acoustic twist, What Is Love? marks the debut of 18-year-old songwriter Christofer Drew. Like Adam Young -- the sole member of Owl City -- Drew launched his one-man band by promoting the songs on MySpace, where his tales of angst and adolescent love found an appropriately teenaged audience. While Owl City proved to be heavily influenced by the Postal Service, though, Drew writes his music with a wider range of influences in mind, flaunting a sound that owes equally to Jason Mraz, the Honorary Title, and the Early November.
