Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both catchy and hard-hitting, their songs, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment. Take hook-happy new wave, add to it the classic-rock story-telling humanity and leaven with other-worldly charisma, and you begin to understand the palette Neon Trees are working from. There debut album Habbits, featureing the single ‘Animal’, is a kick ass collection of new wave alternative rock with a twist. They are headlining the summer 2010 Bang the Gong Tour with Paper Tounges and Civil Twilight.

EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROS
Alternative, Indie, mixed with Neo-psychedelia, Edward Sharpe is defietly a unique mix. Their song “Home” was voted number 15 on the Australian Triple J Hottest 100, 2009 countdown, the largest music poll in the world.
Originally hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Civil Twilight is a power trio that draws similarities with Muse, Pilot Speed, and other like-minded bands with impassioned vocals and stirring, alt-rock music. “Letters From The Sky” was featured at the end of Episode 11 of Harper’s Island. In addition to this, the song was also featured on One Tree Hill.
