Check Out: Indians - "Magic Kids"


Indians are a group, surprisingly, from Copenhagen, who deal with a kind of classic new-wave melancholia that blends chillwavey drones and chimes with a jittery post-punk vibe in a way that sounds much better than it looks on paper. If you don’t believe me you can check out “Magic Kids,” the band’s first single ever, which’ll send the best kind of chills up your spine. It’s not your customary Nordic electronica; the closest reference point we have is Deerhunter’s more ambient moments (anyone else reminded of the last bit of “Calvary Scars II”?), and those lyrics – “your eyes do not see anymore…” – fit perfectly over a soundscape that feels like a long winter spent indoors. We can’t wait to hear more from this band. Check out “Magic Kids.”
