Recently recorded in Eastbourne, the track is typical of the band’s unique melancholic soaring and poetic songwriting, and demonstrates their authentic and inimitable charm.
Darren says of the track, “In between our live dates in the summer we began serious work on new music. We’re still doing that and we could wait until the time is perfect with a record in hand or we could start letting it go sooner. ‘The Stranger Things’ is about making sure your priorities are inline. Or maybe even just about realising those priorities. It’s less frills. More balls. Not enough spring reverb. And too much heart.”
Lauded by the NME as “Scotland’s coolest new gang” and The Times “A band to get excited about”, their debut album ‘Strange Hymns’ was critically acclaimed on release – “Melodic Beauty … heading ever upwards” **** Record Collector, “Grandiose gorgeousness” DIY, “Majestic” Gigslutz – and the band have enjoyed consistent support from 6 Music and Radio X.
Neon Waltz spent 2018 touring relentlessly and building on their loyal live following.
The year started supporting The Sherlocks, with their own 15 date headline tour in the Spring, as well as selling out the iconic King Tut’s in Glasgow in May. This was followed by prestigious support dates with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds at Blenheim Palace’s Nocturn Live, Scarborough Open Air Theatre and Greenwich Music Time – while also appearing at festivals through the summer including Liverpool Sound City, Tramlines, All Points East and Glasgow Summer Sessions.
The live dates with DMA’S start tomorrow, and the band close the year with a gig at Glasgow’s SWG3 with Baby Strange on 22nd Dec. The band also announce their biggest headline tour to date with 14 shows nationwide in March 2019
