Indigo describe themselves as ‘four nondescript, and yet indefinably irritating young men from London’. They’ve been together since the end of 2017, and have released their debut EP, ‘Please Sign Us To Your Label’. We caught up with the band to find out more.

It’s a gamelan opera about the mundanity of modern existence.

First up, tell us about yourselves - what led you teaming up as Indigo?
After we met at the summit of Everest in 2017, the drummer accidentally poured his tea flask on the bassist, so we had a massive fight, fell off the stupid mountain and landed in London.

Who do your take inspiration from?
Everything and everyone.

Why the name ‘Indigo’?
Because we couldn’t think of anything better.

How would you describe your musical style?
Happy and sad. Striving for better.

If you could collaborate with any living artist or band, who would you choose?
Elvis, ‘cos we’d get half the royalties and just be super rich.

Tell us about your self-produced EP ‘Please Sign Us To Your Label’, what’s it about?
It’s a gamelan opera about the mundanity of modern existence.

When did you write ‘Please Sign Us To Your Label’, and where did you record it?
Written in bits and pieces over the years. We recorded it in Perry Vale Studios with Pat Collier in August 2018.

How does ‘Please Sign Us To Your Label’ represent your style?
It’s the first attempt at making a cohesive project.

Can you talk us through each song?
* ‘Afterthought’ - Slow and reflective. * ‘Distant Lullaby’ - Upbeat but sad. * ‘Will It Ever Come To Me’ - Alone in room, wondering why it’s cloudy again. * ‘Bypass’ - Missed opportunity.

What are your hopes for ‘Please Sign Us To Your Label’?
Come on now, let’s not be silly.

What other plans do you have for the year?
We’re going to release at least two more singles before the end of the year. They’re better than the EP. Good stuff!

Finally, if you could go back in time and give yourselves one piece of advice, when would it be and what would you say?
Don’t worry quite as much as you did. But still worry quite a bit, ‘cos it drives you to do something better with your life.
