Frontman Brandon Flowers told The Quietus about Neon Tiger: "I was trying to write like MGMT. And it's nothing like MGMT, it never turns out that way. With 'Sam's Town' I was trying to write a song like the Arctic Monkeys and of course it's nothing like them. It turned out to be this big boisterous thing. But that's cool. It's actually a good tactic, I guess."
Far from the evergreen of old Assam
Far from the rain fall on the trails of old Saigon
Straight from the poster town of scorn and ritz
To bring you the wilder side of gold and glitz
