Band of the Day Revisited: Indya (and brand new video!)

We talked to Indya a while ago, and reported on her getting a pretty bad bash on the head at a gig! Hopefully our revisited questions will only be a mild headache in comparison…

Simple things first – where are you from?

I’m from Brighton (originally Italy) but I’ve spent most of my time in London and Essex.

How long have you been playing with the band?

I’ve been playing for 12 years but Indya has only been going for 4 years.

Before you get sick of being asked… where does the name come from?

My performance name Indya is my middle name which means gorgeous person.

What are your influences?

My influences are Bring Me The Horizon, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Joan Jett.

Describe your music. What makes you unique?

My music is one huge orgasm! Hooky porno guitar licks, haunting multi complex guitar riffs. It’s got a sleazy industrial sound and is pure glamour rock n roll. I’m unique because I give the fans what they want.

Do you have any particular lyrical themes?

My lyrics are all about my life. Real events! Every time I’m upset or angry I tend to write a record. It’s therapy, I guess.

What’s your live show like?

Our live shows are insanely mental lol! We have one big party on stage celebrating music. We all get on well and we love giving it to the audience.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?

The wildest thing I’ve ever done in a show is we had a lap dancer on at the Cart and Horses in Stratford and I got slung out my own gig… oops!

What kit does your band use / guitars do you they play / etc.?

My drummer uses a Pearl export drum kit / guitars are Les Paul mother of pearl and Gibson.

What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?

New single “Gimme Ya Luv” is out Friday 12th July. [The video for the single can be viewed below!]

What are your plans for 2019?

2019, we just plan to smash it.

If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you?

Marilyn Manson and Cyanide Sundae.
