Neon Highwire is three determined men from two countries with one goal: to make you dance like a grizzly bear on a Turkish hotplate. A fusion of dirty electro and angular post-rock guitar soundscapes, their sound is strapped into intricate structures with three part vocals that amplify and propel the songs to their irresistible climaxes.
Glass Diamond cemented their reputation as 2009's party-starting electro ones-to-watch with a plucky spot opening for Gary Numan at the 02 Arena Birmingham, a MEZE Festival slot supporting Dubstep legend Caspa, and in November played alongside Hexstatic at Camden Koko. This year sees the release of debut single "Chase After Myself", which will be released through Glasstone Recordings. Recently, they've been featured on Radio 1's Newsbeat following their appearance at Cardiff's SWN Festival. Glass Diamond are a drummer with a background in drum n' bass, a bassist/synth wizard with a background in punk and hardcore, and a Taiwenese singer beamed in from some kind of alternate universe rule the world.
