Radio Feedback: Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn Says His Mom Made His First Time Even Better

By Shannon Carlin

One thing Tyler Glenn would like you to know about his mom is that she “makes everything better and bigger.” This includes, but not limited to, the first time he heard his band Neon Trees on the radio.

It was 2009, right around Christmas and Glenn was back home in California. The frontman was driving around with his mom and dad looking at the Christmas lights on the nearby houses when all of sudden his band’s song “Animal” off their 2010 debut, Habits, came on the radio. His mom got so excited, she started screaming.

“It was almost That Thing You Do! moment,” Glenn told, citing the 1996 film, directed by Tom Hanks about a little band from Erie, PA. “It was cool because I probably wouldn’t have wanted to be around anyone else when I’m like having proud life moments cause she definitely makes it all much more important.”
