Neon Indian (formed in 2008) is an American multimedia indie-rock and electronica project, specialising in danceable jams with apt visual accompaniment, hailing from Denton, Texas, U.S.
Neon Indian’s musical composer Alan Palomo was born in Monterry, Mexico, however raised in San Antonio, Texas, later attending the University of North Texas. Inspired by his father’s brief stint as a Mexican pop star, the young musician began writing lyrics and melodies during his time in school. The visual aspect of Neon Indian is handled by Alicia Scardetta, who embellishes the music with short films, trailers and colour. The duo’s debut output was the 2008 EP “No Way Down”, though failing to raise to exposure of the band, the release introduced Neon Indian’s crafted electronica sound. The band’s subsequent release was a pair of singles “Should’ve Taken Acid with You” and “6699 (I Don’t Know if You Know” which got picked up by the online hype machine and catapulted to national consciousness.
Another pair of singles “Deadbeat Summer” and “Terminally Chill” arrived in 2009 ahead of their debut full-length “Psychic Chasms”. Earning a Best New Music stamp of approval from Pitchfork Media, the record earned a host of positive reviews, and resulted in a widespread national tour. The following year “Psychic Chasms” was re-released, including a bonus collection of remixes entitled “Mind Ctrl: Psychic Chasms Possessed”. The popularity this garnered for the group allowed Neon Indian to embark on a worldwide tour
Neon Indian’s sophomore album “Era Extrana”, recorded in Helsinki, Finland, was released by Mom + Pop in September 2011. Peaking at No. 74 on the Billboard 200, the record received positive reviews from the critical press, and led to another North American tour, this time with Purity Ring and Com Truise as support acts. The short film “Heart: Attack”, the first in a three-part instrumental series, was included with the album, later followed by “Heart: Decay” and “Heart: Release”.
The split EP “The Flaming Lips with Neon Indian”, alongside referred music group The Flaming Lips followed later in 2011, after which Neon Indian contributed the song “Change of Coast” to the 2013 video game “Grand Theft Auto V”. Featuring remixes of songs taken from their “Era Extrana” album, the EP “Errate Anex” was released in April 2013, featuring remixes by Actress and Twin Shadow.
