We Are Scientists & Neon Trees to Light Up The City

Come July 26, Fort Canning Park will be awash in a swathe of neon light and crunching guitars as alt-rock act Neon Trees is set to take to the stage for a one-night only concert.

Hailing from Provo, Utah, Neon Trees achieved notoriety when they opened for The Killers on tour in 2008. The name of the group is inspired by the lighted trees on the In-N-Out Burger signs. Fronted by vocalist Tyler Glenn, drummer Elaine Bradley, guitarist Chris Allen and bassist Branden Campbell delivers a solid repertoire of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard-hitting.

The band’s latest live album, iTunesLive From SoHo, features "Calling My Name," "Animal," "Your Surrender," "Never Tear Us Apart," "In The Next Room," "1983," "Love And Affection," and "Sins Of My Youth."

Supporting Neon Trees is none other than Brooklyn-based indie-rockers We Are Scientists. Comprising Keith Murray (guitars/vocals) and Chris Cain (bass/vocals), the duo’s sound -- part post-punk revival and part indie rock, with a touch of '80s synth-pop -- drew parallels to popular bands like Editors, Franz Ferdinand, and The Killers.

Neon Trees Feat. We Are Scientists perform in Singapore on Jul 26 at Fort Canning Park. Tickets from $78 from Sistic.
