Published Feb 07, 2018It's been a few years since we heard from Alan Palomo's Neon Indian project, but that's all about to change. It's been revealed that Palomo is contributing music to a new film called Relaxer.
The flick is being directed by Joel Potrykus, and it's set to premiere at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, which runs from March 9 to 18 down in Austin.
It's unclear at this point if Neon Indian has contributed a full-on score for Relaxer or contributing fleshed-out songs.
The film's bio, though, reads as follows:
Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can't be stopped. Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: stay on the couch until he beats the infamous Billy Mitchell record on Pac-Man by getting past level 256. No getting up, no matter what. No quitting. Abbie must survive inside a rotten living room with no food or water, and numb nut friends and toxic gas getting in his face. Luckily, Abbie's secret 3D glasses begin to give him new abilities, controlling the powers of his tiny universe.
The film stars Joshua Burge, David Dastmalchian, Andre Hyland, Adina Howard and Amari Cheatom, and it's arriving via Oscilloscope Laboratories.
While we wait on more details surrounding Neon Indian's musical involvement with Relaxer and a possible soundtrack, you can learn more about the film and its premiere over here.
Neon Indian's last album was 2015's VEGA INTL. Night School.
