Today, we Get To Know Indi, a young songstress out of Melbourne who might have grown up on a diet of country, but who will this weekend drop her very pop new single.
It’s called ‘Should’ve Known Better’, it’s inspired by “edgy synthpop artists like Charli XCX and Tove Lo” and we’re pretty sure you’re going to like it.
So without further ado, let’s Get To Know Indi.
01. Name : INDI.
02. Where are you based? Melbourne, Australia.
03. How did you get your start in music? Music and performing is everything I’ve ever known as long as I can remember. I chose this path pretty much from the moment I could talk and I haven’t looked back since.
04. Give us five words to best describe you as an artist. Unique, bold, edgy, raw, dynamic.
05. Tell us a little bit about your sound and how it developed. My earliest influences were in fact country artists such as Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and the Dixie Chicks, whom I grew up listening to while living in rural Gippsland on a dairy farm. While I still hold the same appreciation for country music and have quite a distinct “twang” to my voice, my sound has definitely evolved since then.
06. Who have been your musical influences? My greatest musical influences would have to be Freddie Mercury and Alanis Morissette, for their unleashed, raw vocals and their captivating lyrics and emotion-fuelled performances.
07. What are your favourite songs of all time? ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ – Queen, ‘Flame Trees’ – Cold Chisel and the entire ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album (Alanis Morissette).
08. What was the first album you bought? ‘Come On Over’ – Shania Twain.
09. What would your chosen career be if music wasn’t an option? Music teaching or music therapy. Aside from performing, there is nothing more rewarding then imparting your knowledge and the joy of music on to others.
10. What’s the best advice you’ve been given in your career? UNIQUENESS IS POWER – Words by my incredible vocal coach and mentor, David Jaanz.
11. Tell us about your latest release. I love everything this track is about. The new single ‘Should’ve Known Better’ was written by the amazing songwriter/producer team at Damasta Recordings. It is daring and angsty, but also has an underlying vulnerability to it. It presents an important lesson in growing up and having your heart broken, in that it can only make you stronger and wiser.
12. What do your future plans involve? I am aiming to release an EP mid-next year, working alongside my amazing label, Damasta Recordings – which is so exciting. Long term however, I would love to see where music can take me abroad, I recently returned from travelling around the UK and I’ve never fallen in love with a place so much so quickly. It’s so different to Australia and the live music scene is huge there, so one day I’m hoping I can maybe relocate there and give music a crack over there.
13. Where can our audience catch you live? My next acoustic show will be held at Mosaic Bar, Altona on Sunday December 4 from 1pm. Stay tuned to my Facebook page for more gigs updates.
