Adelaide’s NEON TETRA have returned with a defining new single to herald a new era for the band in the bright and luscious ‘Jealous Love’. Bringing together an insatiable groove with fun lyricism and melodic strength, the band are in their element and at ease on record. The dynamism of Neon Tetra is on full display with ‘Jealous Love’ – this is a band who has just kept going from strength to strength.
‘Jealous Love’ came to fruition during sessions spent writing and recording at Supermelody Studios in Kerrie, Victoria, working with noted producer and engineer James Cecil (Architecture in Helsinki, Totally Mild). The first taste of more new music on the near horizon for the Neon Tetra, ‘Jealous Love’ is the perfect culmination of all the band’s influences, refined and captured with finesse.
Neon Tetra have been hitting the ground running since their debut single ‘Reflections’ first put them on radars back in 2017. Becoming one of South Australia’s most popular young bands in the years that would follow, Neon Tetra were able to cut their teeth on growing stages, supporting the likes of Boy & Bear, Robbie Williams, Ball Park Music, Foreigner and Vera Blue.
Releasing their debut EP Pollen last year drew even more attention to Neon Tetra; their single ‘The End Begins Again’ surpassing 45k Spotify streams and ‘So Far From Me’ charting impressively on AMRAP’s metropolitan and regional charts for three consecutive weeks.
The band’s sound is addictive. Polished synths and dreamy production construct a solid soundscape for the band’s pop arrangements to take full flight, while vocally, Neon Tetra have embraced romanticism and maturity and are stronger than ever on this new release.
