It has been quite a while since we last heard from Neon Indian. Well, Alan Palomo is back with a sunny, grooving bop that could soundtrack the summer. The single is called “Annie” and you can listen to it below. His last album, Era Extraña, was released back in 2011, and he’s working on a new one now.

Update: Neon Indian is hitting the road again, with a string of upcoming West Coast dates where he’ll be performing “Annie” as well as other new material, including an appearance at FYF Fest in Los Angeles later this month as well as a DJ set alongside Toro Y Moi at the Sundance NEXT FEST.

Neon Indian is the brainchild of Alan Palomo, who’s 2009 debut record Psychic Chasms not only earned the 20 year-old a spot on numerous year-end lists, but assisted the forming of a genre that, though known by a few names now (hypnagogic pop, glo-fi, chillwave), summoned a very unique and specific electro-mangled sound. Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and SPIN all praised Palomo for his adventurous new sound, and he was tapped to perform at top festivals like South by Southwest, Bonnaroo, and Sasquatch and also scored opening slots for bands ranging from Massive Attack and The Flaming Lips to Phoenix and Chromeo. Alan was originally from Denton, TX before moving to Brooklyn to relocate.
