INDIA ELECTRIC CO.
Indie Pop/Folk duo.
“Two of the most extraordinary musicians, a phenomenal duo”
BBC Radio 2
**** “Busy as rush hour but full of light, describing a life alive with motion” The Independent
“A full musical odyssey” - BBC Radio 1
India Electric Company are perhaps best described as “a veritable musical magpie’s nest”, BBC Radio 3. Blending traditional instruments, folk melodies and subtle electronic influences, they’ve extensively toured throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Their UK shows have included appearances at The London Palladium and Hammersmith Apollo.
After live sessions with BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, Glastonbury Festival appearances and with BBC Introducing’s backing, they released "The Gap" in 2020 with FRUK declaring them “one of the truly pioneering acts in folk music”.
“India Electric Company present their second album, The Gap, following on from their trilogy of EPs focusing on using traditional instruments in contemporary ways and made in association with English Folk Dance and Song Society.
Recorded in a lively wood panelled room, The Gap is inspired by a broad section of their recent explorations including Bembe rhythms, Irish folk melodies and Sarojini Naidu's words.
The Gap is built around the premise that folk songs have evolved from the blending of different cultural traditions. With a truly global outlook, it is a record that began life in England and travelled through seven different countries until being completed in New Zealand in 2020”.
Released May 1, 2020
**** “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.” - The Telegraph
**** “Classy pop” - The Scotsman
Their latest release (from April 2021), is a reworking of Chris Isaak’s iconic hit "Wicked Game" (1989), from the soundtrack of David Lynch’s film "Wild at Heart". They’ve taken a beautiful song and put their on stamp on it. It’s an outstanding cover.
