Ahead of Neon Indian’s return to the UK next month for a sold out show at London’s Village Underground and a special appearance at the Manchester leg of the Dot to Dot festival, he’s released a remix of his new single, Hex Girlfriend, which is now available online.
The remix has been done by producer Becoming Real. Hex Girlfriend was released yesterday (May 28) on Transgressive Records. You can listen to the original here and the remix here.
With a string of 12″ releases and support slots with SBTRKT, Salem and Mount Kimbie to his name, South London producer Becoming Real (aka Toby Ridler) has continued to intrigue the music scene over the past two years. He’s remixed tracks by Jamie Woon and TEETH but his attention now fully lies with Alan Palomo and his electro-pop synth beats.
You can catch Neon Indian live at the following shows:
4th: MANCHESTER, Dot to Dot
6th: LONDON, Village Underground (SOLD OUT)
Electro-pop superstar musician, Neon Indian, has recently released a video for his new track, Polish Girl.
Directed by Tim Nackashi, who has directed video for the likes of Ok Go, Death Cab For Cutie and Givers, the video tells the story of a romance between a humanoid and a girl in a futuristic world.
Watch it here:
Neon Indian also performed Polish Girl live on Jimmy Fallon last week. Pairing up with The Creator’s Project, Neon Indian has combined his live performance with ‘dystopian cyper-fantasy’ using impressive light-painting effects which compliment the other-worldy nature of Alan Palomo’s music.

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 - Neon Indian
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.
