Catchy funk-rock trio release debut album
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of assisting with bringing Indi & The Vegas’ self-titled debut album to the public’s attention, when I co-promoted its launch gig, but I’ve only recently discovered that you can stream the entire album via Soundcloud, thus allowing me to spread the word further. If laidback funk-rock, inspired by the likes of Queen, Prince and The Jackson Five sounds like your kind of thing, then give this Bedford trio a listen!
I’ve been a fan of these guys for a few years now, and was so glad to hear that a full album was on the way, after hearing how good their previous release, the ‘Fair Fight’ EP, was. A few of those EP tracks can be found on this album, including live favourite ‘Pheromones’ and ‘California Sun’ – other highlights include ‘She’s On Fire’ and ‘Holiday’. Having built-up a huge following around the Home Counties, been championed by the likes of BBC Introducing and drawn massive crowds at the Balstock and Rhythms Of The World festivals, it’s surely only a matter of time before they get wider recognition.
For chilled-out, well-produced funky tunes with catchy riffs, Indi & The Vegas are essential listening, and in my opinion this album could easily sit alongside releases from bigger names released over the past year as one of the strongest albums.
For fans of: Living Colour, Prince, Daft Punk, UB40, Incubus, 311, 80s soul
