Stainless Style album, out 17th March
Neon Neonâ€™s Fabric showcase comes 3 days after the release of their debut album, Stainless Style â€“ a highly creative slice of conceptual power-pop inspired by the incredible life of the worldâ€™s first playboy engineer, John DeLorean.Â Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip are joined on the record by a host of talented guests, including; Fab Moretti from The Strokes, Yo Majesty, Har Mar Superstar, The Magic Numbers and Spank Rock.Â The end result was recently described as a â€œterrific collaborationâ€ [4 out of 5] by Q magazine, has caused the NME to forewarn their readers to â€œmiss it at your perilâ€, and been awarded 4 out of 5 reviews by both Uncut and The Observer Music Monthly.
I Lust U single, out 24th March
Neon Neonâ€™s fully polished Stainless Style album will be closely followed by the release of their I Lust U single.Â An ice cool duet between Gruff and guest vocalist Cate Le Bon, I Lust U is a lovelorn-lament underpinned throughout by Boom Bipâ€™s stylish, snyth-lead production.Â The song can be heard here, and the video viewed here.
Neon Neon are also performing at this yearâ€™s SXSW festival in Austin Texas, and further releases and Neon Neon UK live dates will be announced soon.
