The fact that I wasn't aware of Fluorescent until this morning is really a testament to the diversity and strength of the Australia music scene. Their style is somewhere between My Bloody Valentine and New Order. This is most obvious in their track Unfamiliar with begins with a primitive synthetic drum sequence which slowly begins to segue into a dense drowning wall of guitar. Really endearing stuff.

They have been on the scene for a few years and have played with Midnight Juggernauts, PNAU and Cut Copy. You can catch them on the 4th of October supporting Ladytron at their third and final Show in Melbourne at the Esplanade Hotel (I know I will be there).
