The last time Neon Indian played on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, they had something of a moment, with Fallon full-on dorking out for them. The band returned last night to play their new single “Polish Girl,” and things went much the same way, with the usually-enthusiastic Fallon getting even more into the proceedings than usual. Fallon also showed off Neon Indian’s PAL 198X mini-synth from his desk, and the band got a custom swirly light show from the Creators Project.
But just like last time, the real story with this performance is what the band does with it. Every time anyone points a camera at Neon Indian, they seem hell-bent on proving that yes, synth-addled bedroom-electronic types can get it done onstage. The indie rock universe could use more dancers like Alan Palomo. Watch it below.
