Following its premiere on triple j, British India’s new single I Thought We Knew Each Other, kicked off a national tour and the band’s dropping into Canberra next Friday, November 18.
Taking stage at ANU Bar, British India is excited to play to a crowd of fans the latest track. Layered in a film of shimmering strings and guitars, and with an unrelenting break-beat to match, the hushed intensity of the song’s verses make way for the dizzying rush of a mile-high chorus. I Thought We Knew Each Other sees the band’s effortless intensity honed razor sharp.
Since the release of their last album, Nothing Touches Me – which landed neatly in the ARIA Albums Chart at an impressive #5 – the Melbourne based four-piece has been somewhat quiet, bunkered down in the studio. I Thought We Knew Each Other smashes that silence; the song harnesses the stylistic innovations of Nothing Touches Me and synthesises them with the wide-eyed fury of the band’s earliest offerings.
In support of the new single, and following last year’s hugely successful album tour, which included multiple sold-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney, and rave reviews for performances at this year’s Groovin The Moo, British India have returned to the road for an epic 20+ date jaunt.
As part of the tour, the band will take their high-octane live show to 12 regional centres along with six capital cities.
Now with a whopping four Top 10 ARIA albums under their belt, seven entries into the coveted Hottest 100 countdown, and over 10 years in the biz, there is no stopping this indie-rock group.
