4AD Signs Indians

Watch 4AD Session

Breakthrough new artist Indians, the musical alter ego of singer/songwriter Søren Løkke Juul, has been revealed to be the newest signee to the 4AD line-up. Despite only a handful of singles (an expected full-length debut scheduled for release sometime in early 2013), the Copenhagen native has already garnered a rising amount of attention, playing shows with the likes of Beirut, Bear in Heaven, Lower Dens, and Weird Dreams.

To celebrate their signing to the reputable indie label, Indians took part in the 4AD Session video series, performing a number of songs over the course of a single day on Osea Island, a privately owned spot in the estuary of the Blackwater in Essex. In a press release the intention was to “capture the sense of air and atmosphere in the music, each track was recorded in a different location, moving the band and cameras in order to introduce a new element that reflected the change in song. This was further complimented by the shift in light: the session begins with ‘I Am Haunted’ filmed just after high tide in the early afternoon, is followed by ‘Magic Kids’ just as the sun had set, ending with ‘New’ filmed in the small hours of the morning.”

Below the video, you can view Indians’ upcoming tour dates, featuring dates alongside Perfume Genius, Dan Deacon, Glass Animals, and Other Lives.
