Coming to the attention of 4AD after a clutch of demo tracks went online early this year, Indians are still a relatively new proposition. From Copenhagen, Indians is actually one man, Søren Løkke Juul, who brought his band in to being last winter when he felt the need to challenge himself and do something different. Not aiming for anything other than satisfying a creative urge, things have snowballed quickly since. Having performed his first show back in February and self-releasing his debut single a few months later, he then signed a worldwide record deal with 4AD, recorded an album and enjoyed a fruitful summer on the road with tours throughout Europe and North America (playing shows with the likes of Beirut, Bear In Heaven, Dan Deacon, Lower Dens, Perfume Genius, Retribution Gospel Choir, Savages, Weird Dreams and more).
Recorded in a countryside studio outside Copenhagen, Somewhere Else is a highly personal document that's equal parts melancholic lament and hopeful stargazing, with the album title itself an indication of the sense of otherness that runs throughout Søren's music. Heavily evocative of the natural world, the album's cavernous tones and Autumnal warmth just as much recall the vastness of the Scandinavia landscape that formed the backdrop of its conception as it does classic long players from likeminded avant-pop purveyors Flaming Lips and Radio Dept.
