Hailing from the northern tip of mainland Scotland, Neon Waltz are a four-piece indie band with a rich, melodic sound calling to mind their '60s influenced forebears. Formed in the remote region of Caithness in early 2013, the young group patiently honed its robust sound in a shared cottage, gigging locally and recording a set of demos that drew interest from former Oasis manager Marcus Russell.
The band’s debut album ‘Strange Hymns’ was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and was followed up by the similarly lauded ‘Bring Me To Light’ and ‘Huna’ EPs. During this time, Neon Waltz toured extensively throughout the British Isles, leading to sell out shows (including Glasgow’s iconic King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut) and landing support slots with such artists as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Coral and DMA’S.
2023 welcomes the release of the band’s second full length LP ‘Honey Now’, which was recorded at Freswick Castle in collaboration with Tarek Musa (Spring King) and the legendary Edwyn Collins and is due to be released on Fierce Panda Records in September. The forthcoming sophomore album showcases the grand, sweeping sounds that typify Neon Waltz, with singles ‘Thoughts / Dreams / Regrets’ and ‘A Million People’ available to stream now.
