NEON INDIAN – Polish Girl (Era Extraña, 2011)

Neon Indian released another new song from his upcoming sophomore album Era Extraña today via NPR’s All Songs Considered, called ‘Polish Girl.’ It’s a very electronic, very 8-bit track that bleeps and bloops all over the place.

It definitely seems to indicate a new direction for Neon Indian’s sound, as it comes across as much less psychedelic and lysergic and more electro-pop than most of the songs on Psychic Chasms. However, it still benefits from having Alan Palomo’s quirky, retro-obsessed fingerprints all over it, making it a fun 8-bit electro jam.

'Polish Girl’ will be available for download from iTunes on August 4th. Era Extraña is out September 13 via Static Tongues / Mom + Pop Records.

NEON INDIAN – Hex Girlfriend (Era Extraña, 2011)

Stereogum posted up this new track from Neon Indian, off his upcoming sophomore album Era Extraña, yesterday. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it. Something about it is sort of turning me off, but it might just be a grower. I’ve otherwise enjoyed the songs we’ve heard off the record. I guess I’ll just leave this hear for you to listen to and make up your own mind.

Melting asphalt
Running start
Winded tongue ties from a
Heat struck heart

Are you still coursing through my veins
Or is this rain

Whispered message
Ear to ear
Tongued transmissions
Made unclear

Are you still carving out a man?
Is that the plan, is that the plan?

If I could fall out
Of love with you
I need to fall out
Of love with you
Please let me fall out
Of love with you

Ooh it’s magic,
We somehow imagined
But I don’t pretend to
Know what’s inside you

If I could fall out
Of love with you
I need to fall out
Of love with you
Please let me fall out
Of love with you

Neon Indian - Polish Girl

It’s been at least another year 
And still I haven’t got the chance to say
Always rolling off the tongue
Never said but nearly sung about a million ways

Every photograph and story 
Trickled through the lengthy web of friends
I overthought but understood
Distant looks but looking good
And not the other way

But you, you fail to remember
But you, you fail to remember

Do I still cross your mind?
Your face still distorts the time.

Do I still cross your mind?
Your face still distorts the time

With heat struck afternoons long through
Those idle dreams go back to you
Was this only in my head
Just like most things go misread
When overthought.
