Letting Up Despite Great Faults Announce New Record 'Neon' out August 12, 2014!

Austin's Letting Up Despite Great Faults Return With Their New LP Neon  - Out August 12, 2014 on Limited Edition White Vinyl!

Since forming in Los Angeles, Letting Up Despite Great Faults have been steadily refining their signature brand of electro indiepop, winning over critics and fans alike with a string of noteworthy releases and highly acclaimed singles. The four-piece, now based in Austin, is fronted by Mike Lee, whose hushed vocals recall intimate accounts of love, loss, relationships and youth.

Never a band to favor sentiment over melody, Letting Up's beat-driven, hook-infused songs alternate seamlessly between pounding indie rock anthems and evocative, shoegazey soundscapes. Their new album, Neon, features the band at full form, taking listeners on a sonic joyride full of overdriven guitars, lush synths, and danceable dreampop.
Speaking on the two year lapse between 2012's Untogether and Letting Up's forthcoming LP Neon, Lee explained:  "I think Untogether had a real purpose for me, and was such a reflection of a disparate time in my life that once I moved to Austin (from LA, right before the release of Untogether). It felt like such a nice, fresh start that I wanted to kind of replace that image/feeling Untogether had with something brighter and hopeful as fast as I could."
