When the cringe-inducing term “chillwave” surfaced a few years back, it was cast upon such electro-pop talents as Washed Out, Toro y Moi, and Neon Indian. While these musicians deserved a far less throw away term for their musical contributions, the genre sparked immediate buzz and hordes of fans. Since then, each respective artist has managed to produce a sophomore effort that sees maturation in sound and focus.
It’s behind the late 2011 release, Era Extrana, that Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo brings his evolving sound to The Fillmore on Tuesday, April 24th (8pm, $25). Brooklyn-via-SF trio Lemonade supports, creating a dance party that will absolutely sell out, so we recommend grabbing tix now.
Palomo also has a new video out for the Era track “Fallout,” made by the folks at adult swim. As their story explains under the official YouTube video: “When we heard ‘Fallout’ from Neon Indian’s new record, Era Extrana, we knew we had to do something with him. So we tracked his ass down and said ‘let us make you a video!'”
Indeed. Watch it below.
