Hailing from Wrexham in North Wales, DEF NEON are a band that fuses elements of rock, electro, synthpop and bass music to create a sound that has been described by critics as energetic, intense and unique.
The band’s infectious and accessible sound coupled with their engaging live performances across the UK has proven popular with live event organisers, club promoters and fans alike, leading to a number of headline shows, festival appearances and high-profile support slots for The Orb, 65daysofstatic, Death in Vegas, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Birthday Massacre, Syd.31, The Algorithm and Sonic Boom Six.
After signing a recording deal with Manchester’s AnalogueTrash label, DEF NEON unleashed their staggering self titled debut album in November 2016. Featuring 10 tracks and stuffed to bursting with their signature guitar leads, synth hooks and effortlessly memorable choruses, it has an uncanny juxtaposition of contemporary electronics and classic indie rock sensibilities. Think: The Gossip meets The Pet Shop Boys, or Peaches meets Van Halen!
