5 Upcoming Indian Indie Albums to watch out for

Posted at November 26th, 2015 | by Shantanu | in

With a bunch of music festivals around the corner, and records releasing by the day, it’s a busy time of year for the independent music scene. Amidst all the noise, here’s a small selection of albums that you shouldn’t miss.

Parekh & Singh

Parekh and Singh are a duo based out of Calcutta known for their cutting edge sound and their highly acclaimed debut record “Ocean” which was released as Nischay Parekh in 2013. Their sophomore dream pop LP titled // (reads Forward Slash) is set to release before the year ends. If you’ve heard Ocean, then it goes without saying that // is going to be worth your excitement.

The F16s

If your in an Indie-rock band, or just a fan, and the F16s haven’t popped up in your radar over the last couple years then you’re obviously doing something wrong. With two slick EPs to their name : “Kaleidoscope” released in 2013 and “Nobody’s Gonna Wait” released in 2014 which they recorded in Brooklyn, NYC, the Chennai based 5 piece have almost finished work on their debut LP titled “Triggerpunkte” that’ll hopefully be good to go early next year.

If you’re a Bombay scenester in your late teens or twenties then you probably already knew that. Their debut EP “Attention Please” was released in 2013 to massive critical acclaim. They’re all set to release their debut LP titled “Lead Feet Paper Shoes” before the year ends.

MindFlew

Having been relatively quiet since their debut record “The Happy Sad EP” in 2012, MindFlew are back and finishing up work on their First full-length album set to release soon. The New Delhi based four piece have an eclectic sound ranging from Alternative, Experimental to borderline Psychedelic Rock. This LP, much like most of the work produced by Ritwik De, has DIY written all over it.

Set to release early next year, with over three years in the making, the album promises to be worth the wait.
