Neon Windbreaker are an outrageously exciting Toronto five piece treading the spidery line between noise-rock abandon and melodic structure. Having formed in the spring of 2010, they have played across Canada and the United States alongside Pissed Jeans, Do Make Say Think, Male Bonding, DD/MM/YYYY, Monotonix, This Will Destroy You and many more.
Their new EP New Sky is five tracks long and clocks in at under seven and half minutes long. A frantic burst of uninhibited creativity, the tracks are chaotic and unpredictable without being needlessly abrasive or obtuse.
Recorded by Alex Bonefant (METZ/Crystal Castles), the EP was released on October 28th through Canada's We Are Busy Bodies, which has previously released the likes of METZ, DD/MM/YYYY, Japanther, AIDS Wolf, Odonis Odonis and Doldrums.
Neon Windbreaker will play their debut UK shows from this October.

The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
