While I was catching up on my Google Reader today, I came across an amazing track by Neon Indian via GorillavsBear. Neon Indian is a duo who is currently hiding their identities from the public. All we know is that they're making music long-distance, with the guy in Austin and girl in Brooklyn. GvB commenters are speculating that the guy is from VEGA, but who is the girl? No idea, but I can't stop listening to "Deadbeat Summer." The psychedelic, Ariel Pink/Gary War-esque intro gives way to a soft drum machine line that reminds me of Cut Copy, circa their Bright Like Neon Light days. Seemingly sprinkled on top, the male vocals perfectly complement and balance the instrumentals instead of monopolizing the listener's attention. Add a little synth line on top, and I am sold. Every note and progression seem to be so intriguingly organic, and I've found myself listening to this song on repeat. Can't wait to hear more. For now, you can listen to some other tracks here.
