INDEA are a four piece band from North London with a unique indie rock sound, strongly influenced by the band member’s multicultural backgrounds. India are composed of native-born Londoners, a Swedish drummer and a Venezuelan bassist, their music can be described as Bloc Party, The Clash, Oasis, Blur, and James Brown in the same room.
It all started in 2013 when guitarist Mike Brewin put out an ad for a singer—singer Kelvin Anipa answered. Swedish drumer Philip Schnell joined the band soon after, with Venezuelan bassist Jesus Torres joining in 2015. Now an up-and-coming four-piece on the local circuit, INDEA has since played venues all over London (Scala, Cargo, 93 Feet East, Proud Camden, Camden Assembly, etc.) and the UK (Guilford, Liverpool, Brighton, Manchester).
The band’s debut single, “Far Away”, with it’s blaring guitar and large presence, speaks to the band’s ambitious, hard-rocking nature and the space that they encapsulate: fearless, mixed, and inspired to move forward. With a debut album in the works, “Far Away” is a powerful taste of what listeners can expect from these rising rockers.
“North London lads Indea will be bringing their brand of indie rock to the stage. Their unique sound, full of jangly guitars and soulful vocals, has gained seen them share the stage with huge names like alt-J.” – Absent Kelly
