Neon Trees is a top rock band formed in Provo, Utah. The band has four members — Tyler Glenn (vocals, keyboard), Chris Allen (guitar, vocals), Branden Campbell (bass guitar, vocals), and Elaine Bradley (drums, percussion, vocals). The band’s name originates from the lighted trees on the In-N-Out Burger signs, which inspired Tyler Glenn. In a strange twist of fate, it was later learned that Branden Campbell’s father, Steve Campbell, installed the exact Neon Trees in the In-N-Out that inspired Glenn while working for a sign company out of Las Vegas (Wikipedia). All four members of the band are Latter-day Saints. Glenn has been interviewed because he is a gay Mormon.
“Animal” from their Habits album of 2010 was a huge hit. “Everybody Talks” is another one people won’t forget. In March 2012, Neon Trees and their single “Everybody Talks” were featured in a commercial for the 2012 Buick Verano. Their album, Pop Psychology, was released on April 22, 2014. Neon Trees later released three more singles following “Sleeping with a Friend.” The singles are titled “I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends),” “Voices In the Halls,” and “First Things First.”
*It should be noted that Tyler Glenn is no longer a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
