Riff: Neon Trees – “Everybody Talks”

Nov 27, 2012

I can hear the chit-chat/Take me to your love shack

from Everybody Talks lyrics by Neon Trees

From The Killers to Neon Trees, Mormons sure know their way around power-pop. The drive-in themed video fits the old-school rock-‘n’-roll flirtation vibe, which permeates more of the lyrics than the gossipy title would imply. Either way, it’s crowd-pleasingly simple fun, but not mind-numbing.
