Show Review

Slowly tearing himself away from the lazy beats that constituted the chillwave explosion, in his latest video, Neon Indian revamps Nintendo 64-reminiscent chiptune harmonies. Atop a delicious and sentimental synth background, we get dancey disco-pop and Palomo's vocals as a definitive instrument. The video follows the doomed romance of a hard-wired dude unable to break ties from his machines, leaving his vaguely Slavic gamine girlfriend to communicate with him only through pixels.

Artist Bio

An elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo, Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts.

Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui. Neon Indians bedroom ballads have already forged the upcoming Psychic Chasms, set for release this summer. Theyve been compared to New Order, Future Bible Heroes, and most recently said to sound like a saw-wave cutting a Doobie Brothers song in half. Expect much racket to be had from this fresh faced crew.
