Fluorescents is a hard-hitting post-pop-punk band based in the City of Chicago. Combining meaningful lyrics with powerful instrumentals, Fluorescents challenges everyday pop-punk listeners to venture past the standard four chord melodies and tiresome cliches. Instead, they strive to offer a new perspective of unpredictable genre-blending & experimental song-writing. Taking influence from classic pop-punk, midwest emo and modern ez-core, Fluorescents is sure to keep you on your toes with each release as they continue to thrive amongst their local & national music scene.
"The intro brings a ton of energy with its catchy guitar riffs and harder hitting drums that drive the song leading up to its chorus, and the vocals stand out right off the bat, bringing a raw performance in the verses and that memorable chorus." - LIVE A LITTLE BIT LOUDER

"Fluorescents is as captivating live as they are on record, bringing uplifting three part harmony, shredding epic guitar solos and wall rattling drums. The past year, they've continued to fill venues with a new and old faces. Loyal friends and fans make a point to return to shows, sporting their favorite 'Fluorescents' themed merch, singing every lyric back to them"
Headlining Subterranean’s holiday show on the upstairs stage the weekend before Christmas was definitely a high point. “It was so much fun,” Milka said. “It almost sold out. … So yeah, that was super exciting and definitely kind of a humbling moment. A year ago, we couldn’t have gone out there like that.” - Tyler on the bands curated Chicagoland festival "Pop-Punk Xmas"
