The band’s 2009 début EP Luminescence (mastered at the exchange), described by rock sound magazine as “cutting their angular-chops in all the right places, and it shows” was a shining culmination of these various elements. It includes the single Neon Blink, subsequently released on blue dove records with a number of high profile remix b-sides and also featured in a Finnish TV show created by jere vainikka. It also features the sensationally catchy Under Moonlight, a favourite of Tom Robinson (bbc) and James Theaker (nme) and with good reason.
Since then the band recorded the song Fantasyland (Christmas in the Terrorzone) as a tongue in cheek collaborative project with a number of other independent London artists which was subsequently released as a free download. 2010 saw a digital single release of the spectacular Bear At the Bus Stop with its incredible accompanying promotional video which on the day of its release caused their channel to become the 45th most viewed musician on youtube.
Whether it’s the insightful witticisms of their interviews and blog updates, the detail within the multiple layers integral to their sound or the infectious beats that bring to mind the meat of Sonic Youth’s pop phase being fed through a bugged out blender, it’s no wonder Neon Highwire count artists such as French Horn Rebellion or Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs amongst their fans. In their own twisted words, it’s an electravaganza.
