Neon Trees - Good Stuff

        Neon Trees is a rock band from Provo, Utah. Formed initially by neighbors Tyler Glenn and Chris Allen, the band made its first home in Provo, eventually adding Branden Campbell and Elaine Bradley to the lineup. Although a well known band in Provo, the band didn't receive nationwide exposure until late 2008 when they were chosen as openers for several of The Killers North American tour dates. Not long after, the band was signed by major record label Mercury Records and released their first full length album,Habits, in 2010. Their first single "Animal" has climbed to #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart.




       The band first started playing under the name Neon Trees in late 2005 with five original members. The band's name originates from the lighted trees outside of a restaurant, seen in California. The band became well-known throughout Provo and Salt Lake. They released an EP called Becoming Different People in 2006 during the time of their first tour through California. The EP featured promising songs like "Snap the Flash", "Sister Stereo", "Modern Romantics".



      The band released its debut album at Mercury/Def Jam, Habits, on March 16, 2010."Animal" was chosen as the lead single and was featured as the Free Single of the Week on iTunes in March 2010. They performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 23, 2010 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 14, 2010. The song has also been featured on a commercial for Las Vegas.
