Neon Indian – “Polish Girl”

By Amrit Singh / August 3, 2011

The lovelorn “Fallout“‘s made the rounds, now there’s another serving from Alan Palomo’s forthcoming Era Extraña. It’s called “Polish Girl,” it is about a Polish girl, and it makes interesting, intuitive allies out of Neon Indian and M83 vis a vis the latter’s “Midnight City.” Beyond the obvious synth-ronicity between their approaches to dance pop, “Polish Girl” and “Midnight City” make a fine pair by immediately establishing compact keyboard motifs (6 notes and 4 notes, respectively) and letting them repeat while the scenery and chords beneath change shape and structure. Minds steeped in the ’80s, thinking alike. When you DJ next, take them back-to-back.
