Debut album by Indians. Will be released on Jan. 28/29th. Indians are only the second Danish band to have an album released with 4AD,
Efterklang was the first Danish band released by 4AD so anyone acquainted with their musical universe may have an interest in this release!
This is the sound of Scandinavian melancholy, the feel of the winter darkness that embraces/haunts the sound landscape that Soren Lykke Juul extremely well manages to present on his first album.
Indians are actually "just" a one man band, although it certainly doesn't sound this way, but Soren Juul manages through his unique musical talent and song writing skills to capture me and present a fuller and indeed a very vivid picture.
Genre wise, for those who may be interested and have no clue what I talking about. I will briefly say it is a mixture of dream pop/electronica/acoustic music and most likely a few more sub-genres that I forgot about.
So far this album is within it's mixture of genre's the best album I have heard this year. I know we're only in mid Jan, but this one will stick around and follow me through the next many months of winter darkness because I know it will keep growing in my heart and mind every time I hear it, until the warm sun associated with spring/summer finally will be back..
Here's a few pre reviews/introduction of Indians and one song was also presented as the song of the day/week, whatever, on the Rolling Stones website in the beginning of December.
