By the time they return to Grayshott, this Indie Pop/Folk duo (Cole Stacey and Joseph O'Keefe), will have begun their own second headlining UK tour of 2022 and will be fresh back from a four week major European Tour with Midge Ure; both as members of his band and as his support act. I guess Midge is a big fan of theirs. Their Grayshott gig is part of a tour to promote their brand new, album. This time around, they will tour as a trio, having enlisted the services of Drummer/Percussionist, Russell.
Come and see for yourself, what all the fuss is about................................................

Bringing with them songs from their new album, they blend traditional instruments, Folk melodies and subtle electronic influences to present a unique sound that's: “bursting with invention and full of surprises” (The Telegraph) and “classy pop” (The Scotsman).
“Two of the most extraordinary musicians; a phenomenal duo”
BBC Radio 2 **** “Their reeling, spinning sound corroborates the content of their songs which appear to be describing a life alive with motion. They are altogether a good thing; busy as rush hour but full of light.”
The Independent
“A full musical odyssey” BBC Radio 1

Listen here to India Electric Co.'s latest single, which is their cover of "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak;

and their "Great Circles" here:

Sometimes Folk, sometimes not, India Electric Co. use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and modern urban alienation, to end up with something ............
“quirky and glittery - a veritable musical magpie’s nest.” - BBC Radio 3.

After live sessions on 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”.
**** “Exceptional talents.”- Songlines Magazine
“This is sublime! If your troubles don’t melt away when you hear IEC then nothing will shift them. Beautiful, magical.” - Jeremy Vine
“Fresh and gobsmacking!” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
