Newcastle Band 1929indian Launch Debut EP
Described as “a soundtrack for the last throes of our Indian Summer”, local Novocastrian talent 1929indian are set to release their highly-anticipated debut EP ‘The Dreaming’ this month. 1929indian will be rocking out their newest tunes from their CD at their EP Launch on Friday, 25th November, at The Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle.
1929indian is made up of five handsome and inspired young 20-somethings, who came together with a similar musical vision in mid-2010. The band consists of Tyler (vocals), Brendy (guitar) Patrick (drums), Ruth (keys) and Alex (bass).
Despite the anachronistic title, 1929indian’s unusual sound is more reminiscent of the 80’s. Their dreamy experimental pop/rock tunes have evolved into a captivating echo of a new-wave, synthesized lullabies and bright funk rock, taking cues from Depeche Mode and New Order. Innovative and unusual guitar effects paired with bright sharp drumming and cruisey, mellow synthesizers create a gorgeous allusion to retro Summer sun and good times with friends.
One of the tracks from the EP, ‘Six O’Clock Swill’, was released onto their Facebook account and has described as moving with “a purposeful swagger”, padded with a gorgeous, ethereal synth backdrop and led authoritatively by a sharp hard bassline and haunting solid vocals.
Be sure to dress in your best black leather and Indian scarves and go along to watch – 1929 are notorious for an energetic and crowd-pleasing performance. Tickets are $10 each on the night – which includes a free copy of the EP upon arrival.
