“1983” is Neon Trees’ second single.  The beginning is a parody off of the movie BIG starring Tom Hanks.

‘Animal’ by Neon Trees (Mercury Recs)

Neon Trees hail from the untouchable mountains of UT. Their synth rock sound drew the attention of Ronnie Vannucci drummer of The Killers (Island/Def Jam Records). Their single ‘Animal’ was released as an iTunes free download. It later reached no. 5 on the US Alternative charts and no. 77 on the US Billboard Top 200.

From the mountains of UT comes a soothing blend of Neil Young and Wolfmother…
