To coincide with Neon Waltz’s biggest ever UK headline tour this month covering 15
dates nationwide, the band release a brand new single ‘Friends Who Lost Control’ on
The single is produced by Spring King’s Tarek Musa and recorded at the iconic The
Motor Museum studio in Liverpool. The track is accompanied by an innovatively shot
video, directed by and starring the band’s front man, Jordan Shearer, shot in Liverpool
city centre during the recording sessions. The precarious walking-in-reverse and astute
editing combine to unusually alienating, yet entrancing effect
Frontman Jordan Shearer explains the inspiration behind the track – “Friends Who Lost
Control is a relentless look at life without balance … choosing a path out of the norm and
the downfalls that come with it”.
Lauded by the NME as “Scotland’s coolest new gang” and The Times “A band to get
excited about”, their debut album ‘Strange Hymns’ was critically acclaimed on release –
reviews included “Melodic Beauty … heading ever upwards” **** Record Collector and
“Grandiose gorgeousness” DIY.
Neon Waltz spent 2018 touring relentlessly and building on their loyal live fanbase.
Following a tour with The Sherlocks and a vast array of festivals, they ended the year
with a sold out tour with DMA’s in December. Their current headline tour takes them
on a 1,200 mile round trip, and the dates continue with a show at London’s Hoxton Bar
& Kitchen tonight (Fri 22 Mar).
