So, there’s this band called Indigo Earth. They met at University of Westminster. I used to live with guitarist/singer Ben, and know the rest of the band really well.
Indigo Earth are a folk-indie band, with beautiful harmonies and amazing musicians. Ben, Amy, Jess, Matt and Tom have been through a lot together, and their connection and chemistry on stage is there for all to see.
They’ve been together for over a couple of years, and release their debut EP tomorrow (Dec 12th), with a release show at The Luxe. It’s free to get in, so get down there to support them, I know they’d really appreciate it.
The BBC’s Sound of 2012 was released today. Rather than talk about any of the artists that are featured I thought I’d write a piece on one that wasn’t: 2.54
London band 2.54 is fronted by sisters, Hannah and Colette Thurlow – (sisters in bands seemed to be quite a quirky, original thing until every group of sisters joined bands, making it very much less and quirky) – and they really do make a great sound.
With a UK tour set for February 2012, they’re sure to be one of the artists that blows the ‘Sound of 2012′ classroom out of the water. I’m expecting and anticipating big things from these girls in the near future. With a strange epic-ness to their sound, the band would be equally comfortable in a dingy bedroom as they would be playing some of London’s biggest venues. A sort of indie/alternative band with a slight twist, and a dash of cranberry, they’re the sorta band you can’t help but tap your foot along to, or your head, or your finger. They’re really quite good.
