Indian Queens, hailing from Hackney Wick, make music for people of the night. For those who live in a dream like state or those who use the dark to carry out their nefarious habits.
Indian Queens thrive when they are on stage. A delightful nod to In Rainbows-era Radiohead. Their dark, dreamy and hypnotic sounds echo Portishead and Massive Attack mixed with the modern edge and swagger of Warpaint.
"A band with massive potential" - Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins
"Indian Queens dazzle, blasting a shade of gold to the otherwise grey backdrop of Hackney, this is about as mesmerising as it gets. There’s darkness, there’s serenity, and the capability to bite someone’s head off" - Bittersweet Symphonies
The only light in Indian Queens world comes from a flickering street lamp or the dull glow of a mobile phone. It’s the music of Dickens East End before the gentrification. Since Formation in late 2016, the band have been picking up high profile fans such as Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins, Bella Union) Theresa Wayman (Warpaint) and Robert Smith (The Cure), who invited the band to play the prestigious Meltdown Festival this year along side artists such as My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails and The Libertines.
This year they were hand picked to support artists such as Theresa Wayman, (Warpaint), Amber Arcades, We are Scientists, Ash and Broncho. Indian Queens were also invited to play a special showcase at House of Vans which lead to them playing their own stage at this year's Bestival. They also included their current tracks on their in-store playlists across Europe. Other Festival Appearances include Camp Bestival, Boardmasters, Meltdown, EVOL and others.
