Mac Demarco & Alan Palomo (Neon Indian) sing “a duet about two guys going to a nude beach together in Ibiza”

Alan Palomo, of chillwave project Neon Indian is back with a solo release under his own name and he’s tapped Mac Demarco for the first song – “a duet about two guys going to a nude beach together in Ibiza.”

‘Nudista Mundial ‘89’ is a fine boppy slice of electronic pop that isn’t a million miles away from the chillwave haze of Palomo’s other project.

A sunny pop number, the song was recorded at Mac Demarco’s studio, where some gear Palomo was interested in using was in place.

While working on a few tunes, I was trying to get a hold of this certain piano,” Palomo say. “My keyboard player told me Mac had one at his studio so I hit him up. And on one breezy day in May, we sang a duet about two guys going to a nude beach together in Ibiza.”

The video was written and directed by Palomo, and was animated by Johnny Woods in the style of the 80’s adult computer game Leisure Suit Larry.

It sees Palomo and Demarco arrive in Ibiza and engage in a quest to locate a nude beach party, with no shortage of uncanny distractions along the way, including a mushroom cloud comedian bombing at a nightclub and a drug lord’s blood-hungry panther staked out in their hotel room.
