Making a name for themselves at this year’s SXSW after building a hefty amount of early buzz at CMJ in 2009, Neon Indian took to the stage at a sold out Cargo a couple of weeks ago, triumphantly returning to the venue where they made their UK debut almost a year ago to the day.

Sounding something like a non-hippie MGMT, Alan Palamo’s band burnt non-stop through their debut album Psychic Chasms, not overwhelmed by the crowd at their biggest UK show to date.

Drawing particular applause for Sleep Paralysist, Terminally Chill and Deadbeat Summer, the Texan-turned-Brooklynite clearly revelled in their newfound UK fandom, so expect them to push on up from here and make sure to catch their electrifying performances on a scheduled US tour to see out the year and elsewhere in the UK this week.
