Single Commentary: ‘Your Surrender’ by the Neon Trees

The Neon Trees latest track, “Your Surrender,” is featured in Walt Disney Pictures latest movie, “Prom,” which opens April 29. The song, as well as “1983,” will also be featured on the soundtrack.

“Your Surrender” definitely has a prom-vibe to it, with a great drum/bass up-tempo pop-rock alternative sound. This track is one of Neon Trees’ best. It captures teen romance at its most passionate. The lyrics are enchanting, and make a listener remember the moments of their own prom, and teen romances. Tyler Glenn’s vocal’s as well as the Chris Allen’s guitars, Branden Campbell’s bass, and Elaine Bradley’s drum and background vocals, serve as a fresh musical force, with a bit of a U2-like quality.

The track is an overall great hit, and has already helped to continue the success of the band as they continue to be one of the best new bands around.

She loves keeping busy, yet does not mind the occasional moments when she can catch up with a good book wrapped in a fleece blanket, and drinking a cup of tea (which may sound boring to her friends and boyfriend, but she doesn’t care). She has always loved to read and write at an early age. She will be the first to admit that she is a nerd-and loves anything sci-fi such as the X-files. She is also a fan of Harry Potter and Spongebob Squarepants, and counts them as her favorite Heros next to Wonder Woman and Marty McFly. However, unlike most nerds, she can’t do math if her life, or yours, depended on it.
