Neon Indian is an indie electronic act from Denton, Texas. The music is composed by Mexican-born Alan Palomo (born July 24, 1988).
The name Neon Indian was conceived by an ex-girlfriend of Palomo's, who was also the subject of their song "Should Have Taken Acid With You." The song was originally presented as a musical apology for a missed acid date. Her positive reaction to the song spurred Palomo to continue writing more songs as Neon Indian.
