"Letting Up has a penchant for pristine songs that feature soaring synths and shimmering guitars–indie pop in all it’s saccharine glory." Pop Press International
"Ultimately, Neon is the perfect album for the month of August. It has a sunniness that is hard to not smile at, while maintaining a sense of longing and reflection. It’s a grown-up, indie pop album that is both playful and wistful." In Your Speakers
"The familiarity of album opener ‘Shift’ evolves nicely, setting up the stage for ‘Wrapped’, ‘Automatic’ & ‘Gold’, a trifecta of addictive pop. ‘Ride’, however outshines this trio, a pretty Herculean feat to do." Sloucher
"Letting Up make beat-driven, super catchy songs that result in jangly indie rock anthems" The Key XPN
"Letting Up Despite Great Faults’ new single “Wrapped” is a shamelessly romantic piece of synth pop. Male/female vocals, lines like “I'm still wrapped in you but they might sweep me away soon” and a gentle chorus crescendo—how are you not swooning just reading this?" Under The Radar
"If I were you, I’d hop on over to my local record shop tomorrow and pick up what is sure to be one of the great Austin albums of the year." Austin Town Hall
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."
Purchase Neon for digital download or on limited edition white vinyl on their Bandcamp or catch them at their Austin album release party this Saturday at Holy Mountain!
