Neon Cactus- "Beauty and Self Destruction" from "Beneath the Noise"

Neon Cactus is the alter ego / project of singer songwriter / multi-instrumentalist Tom Bruss. When I listen to the track Beauty and Self Destruction from his soon to be released "Beneath the Noise" album with it's syncopated guitar rhythms and pop drenched chorus filtered through funk undertones I thought of new wavish pop 80's sounds of bands like Simple Minds and later Tears For Fears.

Bruss wrote and recorded the debut album over a two year span in Bristol.
