Neon Indian Returns With Fall Tour And “Era Extraña”

When last we saw Neon Indian aka Alan Palomo, he was synthing and popping and synth-popping it up on stages at the best festivals around like South By Southwest, Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, and as the opener for the likes of The Flaming Lips and those Frenchies, Phoenix. All of that on the heels of carving out a creative space for himself appreciated by the masses and critics, alike, with his debut “Psychic Chasms”. Not bad, Mr. Palomo!

But hey, here we are some two years later and Neon Indian is ready for a return. A fall tour kicks off immediately following the September 13th release of the full length “Era Extraña”, said to be a darker body of work written and recorded in Helsinki, Finland. "It's the closest you can get to feeling like you're at the edge of the earth," says Palomo. "And there were moments where I lost sight of what I was really there to do."

We can only hope that “Era Extraña” has a track with even half as catchy a title as “Psychic Chasms” charmer “I Should Have Taken Acid With You”.
