Neon Trees is a rock band from Provo, Utah whose first single, “Animal“, has climbed to #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart. The band’s name originates from the lighted trees outside of a restaurant, seen in California. Although they had several prior independent releases, the band released its debut album at Mercury/Def Jam, Habits, on March 16, 2010. “Animal” was chosen as the lead single and was shortly thereafter featured as the Free Single of the Week on iTunes in March 2010. They performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 23, 2010 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 14, 2010 and Lopez Tonight on October 18, 2010. Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 selected Animal as his Spin Magazine Pick of the Week. If you aren’t familiar with these guys then now’s the time!
