The band have achieved a cult following both in the UK, Europe and USA, despite having only released 2 singles to date (Neon Invasion/Prick Tease, On Fire/Dream). They’ve played a multitude of dates across Europe, even including a spot at Glastonbury. After an inevitable hiatus whilst some members finished college courses and such, they’ve woken up and rubbed their eyes, dusted themselves down to release their debut album… What they’ve said previously about Neon Plastix….

“These new-wave songs force a grin regardless of gender. An impassioned and feel-good statement of intent” NME

“This one’s sure to go mental. Think pop-punk new wave disco floorfiller” Rough Trade

“Doesn’t it just conjure up the pungent whiff of hair gel and cheap fluorescent spirits?” Drowned In Sound
