Neon Indian is set to release his new album, Era Extrana, on Oct 10 through Transgressive Records. In the run up to this date, he is giving away a free download of Fallout, the first taster of what’s to come from his second and anticipated record.
Alan Palomo is Neon Indian who, with his 2009 debut, Psychic Chasms, managed to earn himself a place in the music industry. He assisted in inventing what has come to be known as the musical genre of hynagogic pop, glo-fi and chillwave among other names.
Fallout stays true to this unusual electro sound. Calming and mesmerising, it hooks you in with its simple beats and soft tones. Palomo vocals fit perfectly and compliment all the different sounds. He sounds like he’s from an 80s pop band, similar vocally to The Human League’s Philip Oakey just a bit huskier. Palomo’s voice produces the deeper, huskier tones that are needed to really give this song that spacious, psychedelic feeling.
