Alan Palomo of Neon Indian is coming to The Atlantis in DC on Thursday, Nov. 9 (with opening act Glove), and you can win two tickets to go to the show *and* signed vinyl from Alan with Parklife DC!
Alan Palomo, the auteur musician/producer behind the long-running avant pop project Neon Indian, released his debut solo album, World of Hassle, via Mom+Pop Music in September.
Recently, Alan shared “Nudista Mundial ’89,” the lead single from the record. Palomo brought the song to fruition at Mac Demarco’s studio (who also features on the recording) upon learning that he had some key pieces of gear that would help manifest the sun-bleached, funky electro-pop earworm.
“While working on a few tunes, I was trying to get a hold of this certain piano,” Palomo said. “My keyboard player told me Mac had one at his studio so I hit him up. And on one breezy day in May, we sang a duet about two guys going to a nude beach together in Ibiza.”
The song’s absurdist narrative is further brought to life in the accompanying video that Alan wrote and directed. Animated by Johnny Woods in the style of the 80’s adult computer game Leisure Suit Larry, Palomo and Demarco arrive in Ibiza and engage in a quest to locate a nude beach party, with no shortage of uncanny distractions along the way, including a mushroom cloud comedian bombing at a nightclub and a drug lord’s blood-hungry panther staked out in their hotel room.
