about

The release of debut EP 'Chance' demonstrated the overarching motive of Neon Tetra as a sonic collaboration. The short play album has proven to be an introduction to both the band's direction and diverse scope. Nestled between the enchanting synth kickers Chance & Precious Lights is a demonstration of their ability to raise the pace in Roam, home to electrifying rhythms and infectious drum scores.

'They take cues from the likes of New Order, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, the result is a combination of psychedelic rock, pop and new wave...' - The Music [Dec '16]

Track Name: Precious Lights
Drop the shades, look in through the blinds.
Wonder where you’ve been, there’s no surprise.
You’re taking all your time, trying to decide, what’s wrong with our lives.
I’m wondering why, I made all these lies, I’m sorry my dear.

First you run, then you fall, still I'm waiting, and that’s all.
Then you told, me you'd call, but still I'm waiting by the phone.

Wasted time, reflections of my mind.
Are passages of pleasantries to recite.
I’m taking all my time, trying to decide, what’s wrong with my life.
I’m wondering why, I made all these lies, I’m sorry my dear.

First you run, then you fall, but you wait here, and that’s all.
Then you told, me you'd call, but but still I'm waiting by the phone.

Don't you know? I’m not going to come back home. Tonight won’t be under precious lights.
Track Name: Roam
Looked into her eyes before
We lost track of where we’d gone
Calling from behind the lights
Wondering where we spent our nights

We’re standing where we’d been before
Warming by the fires
Standing in a riptide
Waiting to be pulled along

You are waiting for our day to come.
You are everything I’ve waited for
You’ll say tomorrow is another day.
You are everything I’ve waited for

Walking through each other’s tracks
Still the same when turning back
Cast aside the keys I hold.
Let you walk in through the door

We’re standing where we’d been before
Warming by the fires
Standing in a riptide
Waiting to be pulled along

You are waiting for our day to come.
You are everything I’ve waited for
You’ll say tomorrow is another day.
You are everything I’ve waited for

You waited for the days to come, they go.
You waited for the rain to fall, it won’t.
You’re standing there with nothing on, you’re cold.
You waited for your friends to come, they won’t.

You know by now you shouldn’t have gone.
You know by now you shouldn’t have gone.
You said goodbye one too many times.
You know by now.
You know by now.
You know by now that you shouldn’t have gone.
Track Name: Chance
Take me away, away from here
Take me away, away my dear
Take me away from this old place.
We’ll soon be gone without a trace.

Gone you’ve, gone so far from home.
Where a second chance won’t come along.
You know you’ve gone, so far from here
Won’t you say goodbye to me?

Take me away we’ve stayed too long
If we live tonight, we’ll live alone
Run away and have no fear
To take a life’s to take one dear.

Gone you’ve, gone so far from home.
Where a second chance won’t come along.
You know you’ve gone, so far from here
Won’t you say goodbye to me?
