As the saying goes, opposites attract—which is a good thing when
it produces results such as Neon Trees. The Provo, Utah, quartet are local
heroes, and are gaining a following nationally with their major-label debut, Habits. Vocalist-keyboardist Tyler Glenn
and guitarist Chris Allen were neighbors in California, and Glenn followed
Allen when he moved to Provo for college. Bassist Branden Campbell and
drummer-vocalist Elaine Bradley round out the band’s sound. Bradley notes, “We
are all so fascinatingly different. Tyler’s the quirky serious type who is
really a goofball. Branden’s the musical history encyclopedia. Chris is the
manual labor. Being in this band is like an arranged marriage where divorce is
not an option, and I’m OK with that.” The “married” foursome produce melodic
pop-rock that’s full of hooks and history, but not a retro throwback. Nope,
it’s urgently, awesomely original.
