Show Review

Neon Indian just released a video for his song "Slumlord Rising," off his new unbelievable album Vegas Intl. Night School. The video is just as translucent and airy as the song itself; Neon Indian is so impressive at stapling these thematic elements to eccentric electronic loops. And the video? Think Dark Knight Rises meets Night at The Roxbury, meets that Netflix show Narcos. There's blood, there's choking collars, and there's a disco. "Slumlord Rising" sort of takes on it's own enterprise in the video, besides it solely being a flashy, bedazzled song that you can't (and won't) stop listening to. So Bane, the Butabi brothers, and "El Patron." Neon Indian; you are something else.

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.
