Neon Tetra share their influences for their long awaited debut EP

Adelaide funk masters Neon Tetra have been busy this year.
From supporting UK superstar Robbie Williams earlier this year, to celebrating the release of infectious single ‘The End Begins Again’ with successful shows, plus spending their days slaving away in the studio, all roads have led Neon Tetra to this point – the release of their long awaited debut EP, POLLEN. Check it below.

As the band explains, POLLEN is the result of what had turned into a glorious melting pot of musical influences; not restricted by decade or genre specifics, Neon Tetra have brought their own individual backgrounds together in making a record of music that should come with a warning… Contains Catchy Hooks and Solos.
“Dan wrote a lot of tunes while listening to artists like Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes…the soul funk shines through with Josh’s gospel-like vocals lending themself passionately to the feelings of the Motown era. The use of synth and strong grooves links the band’s more experimental beginnings with current pop tones of the music.”
They’ve created a nifty little playlist of tracks that inspired their EP Pollen. Check it out below. If you’re keen on seeing Neon Tetra in all their glory, check out their live show at The Grace Darling in Melbourne on Saturday August 11.
