Neon Neon is the duo of pop master Gruff Rhys from the Super Furry Animals and Boom Bip, the acclaimed US hip-hopper and producer.

Together they meld delicious pop melodies with kinetic beats and swaths of synths, rather like a quirkier version of OMD. ‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ is the pair’s upcoming release coming out the 29th of April. It’s described by Neon Neon as, “a conceptual power pop tour de force inspired by the colourful life of maverick Italian publisher Giagiacomo Feltrinelli.”
