about

NEON is:
Chelsey, drums
Grace, vocals
Marissa, guitar
Rosie, bass

"Everything you could possibly want in punk music. If not, interrogate the integrity of your desires. NEON is a four-piece medium translating the universal howling female shitstorm alive and kicking within us all. Do you seek adventure? Justification for further recorded sound from a guitar? For those bored to tears by predictable rock'n'roll formula and pseudo-punk box-ticking, predictable posturing, NEON is a psychedelic diamond in the barren toxic rough. Yes, Virginia, there really are freaks still residing in a California. 100% proof adult women must escalate the full takeover of all aspects of punk everything. Neon will make you radiant and happy, probably more desirable." – Katie Alice Greer, July 2017

build it build it build it build it
build it up tear it down

why does everybody look so bored?

build it build it build it build it
build it up tear it down

those poor people, they weren’t asking for it
they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time
the spent their whole life dreaming of this
it was their life’s work
why shouldn’t they get what they wanted?
why shouldn’t they get what they wanted?

build it build it build it build it

those poor people, they were just standing there
out on the corner, didn’t you see it?
they weren’t asking for it
they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time
the wrong place at the wrong time
the wrong place at the wrong time
they worked their whole lives for this
it was their dream
why shouldn’t they get what they wanted?

build it build it build it build it

poor people they weren’t asking for it
it’s such a tragedy
crushed by the weight of their own hard work

Track Name: NEON
The purpose of publicity is to make the spectator marginally dissatisfied with her present way of life. Not with the way of life of society, but with her own within it. It suggests that if she buys what it is offering, her life will become better. It offers her an improved alternative to what she is. All publicity works upon anxiety. The sum of everything is NEON, to get NEON is to overcome anxiety. Alternatively the anxiety on which publicity plays is the fear that having nothing you will be nothing. NEON is life. Not in the sense that without NEON you starve. Not in the sense that NEON gives one class power over the entire lives of another class. But in the sense that NEON is the token of, and the key to, every human capacity. The power of NEON is the power to live. According to the legends of publicity, those who lack the power of NEON become literally faceless. Those who have the power become lovable.

manufactured glamour
you know, you know
you know, you know
you don’t wanna know
feed upon the real

neon neon neon neon

appetite for pleasure
envy of the other
you know, you know
you don’t wanna know

NEON will make you desirable
NEON will make you radiant and happy
