INDIGO’s guitar-driven and melancholic indie rock grabs you and doesn’t let you go. It’s no coincidence that the color of the band represents magic and mystery. With their characteristic dreamy guitar sounds and frontman Mart Megens’ low voice, the band has captured a sound that feels like a warm bath. The quartet proves this again on their second EP Meet Me At Dusk, which will be released in Spring 2022.
Born out of shared passion for the band Radiohead, INDIGO suddenly appeared on the radar in 2018. Due to their energetic live performances, the band quickly gained popularity in their hometown Nijmegen, The Netherlands. This live reputation was rewarded with the Audience Award of band contest De Roos van Nijmegen (“The Rose of Nijmegen”) in 2019.
The debut EP A View From Above and a sold out release show followed, just before the pandemic started. During lockdown the band decided to write new music in a tiny cottage in nature, to eventually return in better shape. A handful of songs was recorded in NautaMix Recording Studio in Nijmegen. Expect that dreamlike atmosphere of alternative acts like Ben Howard and The War On Drugs, combined with the immersiveness of Editors and The National. Armed with their new music, INDIGO are ready to take the general public along their dream.
