Unpopular opinion: How is Urban Heat considered goth?

I've been trying to get into Urban Heat lately because everyone seems to be crazy about them and they tell me they're great live, but I just hear plain pop-punk/pop-rock. Some tracks remind me of 2010s Editors, but I still wouldn't call them goth. So where's the goth vibe that everyone seems to love about them? Any particular songs you'd recommend?

Unpopular Goth opinions

What are 3 unpopular or controversial opinions you have regarding the goth scene? I will start

  • I prefer Peter Murphy’s solo stuff over Bauhaus.

  • I think Only Theatre of Pain is extremely overrated and quite frankly it’s just meh.

  • I find myself enjoying The Mission more than Sisters Of Mercy

Unpopular opinion: you don’t have to dress goth to be goth.

All you need to do is to know what being goth really means, and listen to gothic music, it's always posers that say you have to dress/act a certain way to be goth.

Probably unpopular opinion about the SoM…

… but all of their three albums are great. Yes, the "Vision Thing" too. Maybe it's slightly worse than the first two albums, but it doesn't make it a bad album. Actually, my mom loved "Vision Thing" more than "Floodland", as well as one of my friends.

I get why goths dislike "Vision Thing". It's the least goth sounding album. That's 50/50 goth rock and hard rock. However, how many of you like the iconic "Love" by The Cult? It also has much hard rock sound in it. It's still Goth sound. The same with Vision Thing. It doesn't matter what does Eldritch say, their sound is goth. Moreover, it's just good music, whether it's goth or not.

On the other hand, the first album is still the best. And I love the second album as well. SoM is a great band, even though their leader has dic… difficult personality.
