Here at The Music Ninja, we are not exactly strangers to Neon Indian, and hopefully you aren’t either. Alan Palomo’s debut LP Psychic Chasms was an impressive masterpiece of chillwave, and—despite a collaboration EP with The Flaming Lips released just earlier this year—it looks like he is going to follow it up with what sounds to be an equally impressive second full length LP, Era Extraña, due out in September.

“Fallout”—the first cut we’ve heard from Era Extraña is as strong of a track as we’ve grown to expect from Neon Indian. The drone synths hit heavy and his soft vocals carry the track in a way that can only be described as dark and brooding. And in that way, “Fallout” is vaguely reminiscent of the slow-burning new-wave/shoegaze-esque ballads of the 80s, which I find both an interesting and welcome turn for Neon Indian.

Era Extraña is being released by Mom + Pop Records on September 13th.
