Neon Love originated from the dark depths of Ballarats sweet ass music community. Over the past two and a half years Neon Love have developed their repertoire of music through adapting different genres of music and various cliche'd teenage life experiences like girls, parties, no doze, cough meds, sneaking out late at night, holding hands, love and lust and all that lame stuff.
