It was back in 2013 that the English electro-indie band alphabet backwards last featured and having been initially introduced in 2011 is seems appropriate to carry on the biennial tradition.

Indian Summer

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.
