ABOUT NEON TREES
Neon Trees’ new album Pop Psychology is an upbeat collection of sleek, modern alternative pop powered by singer-songwriter Tyler Glenn’s bright melodies, huge choruses, and witty lyrics about the challenges of finding love in the digital age. With disarming honesty, songs like “Love In the 21st Century,” “Text Me In The Morning,” “I Love You, But I Hate Your Friends,” and first single “Sleeping With A Friend” cleverly capture millennial concerns and deliver them in impeccably shiny sonic packages, thanks to the band’s performances and production by Tim Pagnotta, Glenn’s long-time friend and songwriting collaborator. Pop Psychology blends sounds from the band’s previous two albums, 2010’s guitar-pop-driven Habits and 2012’s electro-fueled new wave-inspired Picture Show. “I think this is the first record where we combine both and really sound like Neon Trees throughout the entire album,” he says.
Neon Trees honed their new wave-tinged sound locally before being chosen to open for The Killers. Shortly after, they signed to Mercury Records and released Habits, featuring the platinum-selling breakthrough single “Animal.” The track peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, No. 2 on the Rock Songs chart, and was featured on Glee. Following this success, Neon Trees made multiple TV appearances and toured with Thirty Seconds To Mars, Panic! At The Disco, My Chemical Romance, and Duran Duran. The band’s ascending profile smoothed the way for Picture Show, which debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and featured the platinum-selling Top 10 single “Everybody Talks,” which cemented Neon Trees as modern rock contenders.
Neon Trees are Tyler Glenn, Chris Allen, Elaine Bradley and Branden Campbell.
