I was checking the recent tracks played by a few "friends" over Last.fm, when I stumbled upon mid-England band Neon Zoo. As the songs were available as free downloads and New Order and Depeche Mode listed among similar artists, I really needed no further persuasion to give them a listen. According the band's Myspace profile the music sounds like "Depeche Mode meets Nine Inch Nails" and with their gothic/industrial/electronic sound, this is probably not the most original/innovative stuff you'll ever hear. But it's dark, groovy and quite catchy, which really it's all I'm asking for on this lazy Friday afternoon. And since the band offers plenty of songs and mixes for us to download (for free), Neon Zoo definitely deserves all the support and kind words it can get!
