"India has quickly become one of the best indie-rock bands to emerge out of the Inland Empire. The combination of singer Brad Zurcher's honest, soulful voice and whispy reverberated guitar riffs set over the backdrop of very present bass lines gives one the impression that he has encountered the individuals in India and felt their thoughts after them. Breaking away from modern-pop's tendency to write either opaque or meaningless lyrics, India sets itself in a small class of young bands that seem intent on not only creating good music but also on having a conversation with culture." - Vince Pileggi, CEO of Music Inc


"Just one year removed from its formation in 2011, India has already made a name for itself as one of the premier indie rock bands in the Inland Empire. Hailing from Redlands, California, the quartet of 23 year-olds (Brad Zurcher– vocals, guitar; Dominic Mendoza – guitar; Skully – drums; and Travis Kaenel – bass) have kept busy with a slate of live shows in 2012 , performing as far west as Hollywood and east as Riverside.
It’s not hard to see why India is in high demand. Take “Marlborough County,” a catchy and melodic track in which Brad’s achy, soulful vocals recall of The Fray’s Isaac Slade. Or the religiously-themed “Gethsemani” and “Empty Promise,” where they show off their songwriting skills and signature sound. All combined, this is a band that sounds much more advanced than its years together would indicate.
With several live recordings already released, India has been hard at work on its first EP, set to come out by the end of 2012."-Aaron Ellis, published author for huffington post and wire music venue - Aaron Ellis, Publisher for the Wire Music and Art Venue

Bio

India is a 4 piece modern indie rock band hailing from the city of Redlands in Southern California. Formed in the Winter of 2011, shortly after India released several live recordings in early and mid 2012. In Mid October of 2012 India headed into the studio to record their first EP due to be released early 2013. Even though being together for just shy of a year, India has quickly found a chemistry that has aided their way through the sea of Metal bands that is the inland empire. India's live sets have been described as intimate, sincere, and full of an energetic atmosphere that is refreshingly different. Influences range from artist such as; David Bazan, Mewithoutyou, Coldplay, Thrice, and Radiohead.
