Los Angeles has harbored a dark musical secret. Neon Kross is all that was brilliant about the 80s with a dark, modern edge. New wave, goth, death rock, post punk..? The genre label is as irrelevant as it is flexible. Coming out of the subculture shadows, Neon Kross is establishing its sound and commanding a devout following.
In 2007, John McCoy of Pins and Needles and Daniel DeLeon of Rezurex, Deep Eynde, and The Insaints realized their desire to create melodic synth rock songs that were melodious, romantic, eerie, and mirthful. Influenced by Billy Idol, The Damned, Flock of Seagulls, and Gary Numan, Neon Kross is not a copy-cat but rather a retrospective musical force likewise influenced by classic sci-fi and horror movie themes. Ten years in, NK has released its third album Darkness Falls.
