Clearlake release their new single, 'Neon', on March 20th 2006. 'Neon' will be the second single from their third album 'Amber', which was released in January.
After their last single, 'Good Clean Fun', 'Neon' is possibly the dirtiest-sounding thing Clearlake have ever done. Not only do the lyrics thrive on city grime, but the sound is left loose, low-slung and scuzzy, with a swaggering pugilistic riff. It's also the most obviously urban song Clearlake have recorded. Though they often find themselves caught between the city and the open spaces, 'Neon' finds them definitely in city territory, both dazzled and trapped by it. A skilful encapsulation of the cabin fever and hunger for adventure that drives us to go out again and again every weekend as it swings from disaffection to optimism, it is grubby, celebratory and disconsolate all at the same time.

The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
