A style of music with sounds similar to Death Cab for Cutie and other soft emo bands, but with lyrics that are distinctly happy and whimsical. Whereas emo music told us it was ok to be sad, post-emo music reminds us that it is still cool to be happy with ourselves.
Owl City, while sounding similar to soft emo bands, is in fact quite happy and uplifting, and is therefore Post-emo.

Advanced 'emo' culture, Post-Emo takes this social devolution a step further in every sense. Victims/supporters continue to multiply inexplicably...
Worse clothes, they are typically accentuated with haphazard bright colours as torn black no longer presents a sufficient enough social impact. Projected attitude is more 'insecure and pointless' than ever before. Make-up highly likely.
Jake: Man alive, talk about Post-Emo, look at it...
Mike: That a dude?
Jake: It's Post-Emo.
