Now we don't know about you, but we like to spend our Saturdays at a local pub, boogying down to funky tunes - and oh boy did we have the best time at Neon Queen's show at The Crown and Sceptre on the earlier this month. These Melbourne lads really brightened our night with a specular show, blessing us with a mix of extremely chill and funky songs, that you should be desperately trying to hear live.
Neon Queen remind us of an 80's band with a twist. The sound of smooth synths rolled over us like a wave, with drums that made heads automatically bounce, guitar that made hearts race and vocals that ignited the whole room. This four piece band threw out some brilliant songs, our favourites being 5AM and Real Love. 5AM was a delicious tune that we believe really brought out the realness in this band, a nice slow song is always a good time, however, this one was one that took you away when you closed your eyes. Real Love was where the funk was really shown, the whole crowd jumping with excitement at this synth filled classic. The audience were also treated to a fantastic cover of Childish Gambino's Redbone, and we have to say after listening to Northeast Party House's version, we are having a hard time deciding which cover was better.
There wasn't a moment our feet weren't moving, so we strongly suggest next time these wonderful lads are back in Adelaide, you head straight to their gig.
