Concert preview: Neon Trees strikes a more complex tone on Pop Psychology

From the June 26, 2014 edition

The polished new wave rockers enjoy fashioning tunes about relationships. Neon Tree’s latest, Pop Psychology, is littered with heart-skipping songs like “Love in the 21st Century,” “Teenager in Love” and “I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends).”

Even so, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows (well, sonically it might be — these guys never hesitate to pour on the sheen), and songs like “Voices in the Hall” strike a more complex and ultimately interesting tone.

Smallpools and Nightmare & the Cat also perform.
