The lucky folk of New York will be well aware that this year's CMJ Music Marathon kicked off yesterday, with many top alternative music groups making multiple appearances. Among them are Australians British India who play their first date tomorrow (15th October). Already highly acclaimed, the quartet could well be on the verge of a major breakthrough, having already become known for their live shows (they shared a stage with The Rolling Stones last year) and with four top 10 albums under their belt in their homeland, most recently with this year's 'Nothing Touches Me'.
To mark their US debut shows though, the band have chosen to release the track 'Threshold American' as their new single, a song that was originally recorded for 2013 album 'Controller'. It's a fine choice, and not just because of its title. In fact, like much of their material, this song is influenced by US alt-rock and indie, and will likely be a hit with fans of groups such as The War On Drugs and many modern garage bands, taking a little of each to whip up a powerful, mildly psychedelic and dreamy tune that's fluid and atmospheric, as well as being angry at times. They've got the tunes, now it's time for the wider world to take notice.
Catch them live:
