“A new group from Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals and Boom Bip. Their debut album Stainless Style (OUT NOW WORLDWIDE) is themed around the life of John Delorean and features Spank Rock, Yo Majesty and Fat Lip.”
Neon Neon, MySpace.

Those of us who grew up watching Marty McFly driving the Delorean or cruising on his hoverboard will no doubt enjoy this Electro Pop album.

When we first came across the album there was an instant feeling “Oh here we go again, another attempt to jump on a dying trend”. This album ticks every box, its melodic electro riffs draws you into to an 80’s induced head bopping daze. With appearances on the album by Yo Majesty and Fat Lip give Neon Neon an edge over the homogenous Electro-by-numbers being produced.

Hot Chip beware: this could take your crown of album of 2008 so far. Head over to the Neon Neon MySpace to give the tracks a listen. Our pick is ‘I Told Her On Alderaan’, or maybe ‘Dream Cars’; they’re both contagious. Oh, hold on, it could be ‘Raquel’…
