Indian Summer an alt-rock quartet from Coventry in England is Nathan Wood (Guitar / Vocals), Benjamin Scott (Guitar / Vocals / Synth), Tim Hegan (Bass) and Sam White (Drums).
Shimmers of shoegaze feed through the guitars as Indian Summer deliver music which lives up to the band name, somewhat mournful, yet with that lightness of late autumn sunshine. Formed mid 2013 the quartet recorded an eponymous five track EP in December that they have released as a pay as you like download on bandcamp in which they explore some of the different influences of the players.
The quiet backdrop of electronics adds a warmth to their sound which would otherwise sound quite sharp to the ears as they tighten the strings and voices to the higher registers. As you know, being a fan of stretched bass, it sits at the opposite end of the fret to my personal taste, nonetheless no less the engaging for it.
Indian Summer have made a fine start and have the ability to write tunes with catching melodies, whilst having a depth of emotional context and I would anticipate that with more experience and confidence they will be releasing material which snares a broad international appeal.
My choice of track for the introduction to Indian Summer is unsurprisingly one in which they allow the bass and percussion to rumble a little.

Sound Bullet an alt-rock band from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil comprises Guilherme (Vocal / Guitar), Ton (Guitar / Vocals), Fred (Bass / Vocal) and Pedro (Drums).
If you suffer from tinnitus you will appreciate why Sound Bullet makes so much sense. The high pitched notes are like stabbing a toothpick into the eardrums to scratch away the constant irritation, only this time it is with music, no less painful to the timpani, but far more excoriating and satisfying. Is that the way to judge music I wonder…
Never mind my broken ears – Sound Bullet expose nerve jangling mewls that test the upper registers of the speakers as they deliver music which harks of isolation and for the very fact of the chords selected gives it a powerful ice hewn statuesque prominence. The audience is reminded of the world supposedly connected, yet distanced by copper wires and fibre, reaching out, but never quite meeting hands in a landscape of stacked silos.
The sparkling shards of ice are tinctured with rainbows of colouration as Sound Bullet combine as a unit do deliver sounds which refract endlessly. I look forward to hearing more.
