News: Neon Tetra drop new EP and announce tour dates

2018 has proven to be a fruitful one for Adelaide four piece Neon Tetra, as they have continued to develop as a band behind the scenes while on live stages, they have flourished into a formidable groove machine. From supporting UK superstar Robbie Williams earlier this year, to celebrating the release of infectious single ‘The End Begins Again’ with successful shows, all roads have ledNeon Tetra to this point: the release of their long awaited debut EP, POLLEN.
 
As the band explains, POLLEN is the result of what had turned into a glorious melting pot of musical influences; not restricted by decade or genre specifics, Neon Tetra have brought their own individual backgrounds together in making a record of music that should come with a warning… Contains Catchy Hooks and Solos. “Dan wrote a lot of tunes while listening to artists like Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes…the soul funk shines through with Josh’s gospel-like vocals lending themself passionately to the feelings of the Motown era. The use of synth and strong grooves links the band’s more experimental beginnings with current pop tones of the music.” – Neon Tetra
 
“Described by the band as “a romantic celebration of loss and renewal”, they’ve layered on “Motown hornlines and vintage synth textures”, channeling “vibes from our favourite 60’s and 70’s soul records” – Music Feeds 
 
“Think T-Rex partying with Tame Impala and King Crimson and you’ll be in the right ballpark.” Rolling Stone Australia


“Straight from the introduction, you can tell these boys are down to earth, fun and obviously, hella talented.” – Happy Magazine


“They take cues from the likes of New Order, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, the result is a combination of psychedelic rock, pop and new wave.” – The Music
