Bio

In a music scene that has an over-saturation of carbon copy artists, Grim Indiana seek to roam outside the boundaries of a typical hardcore band.
In their Debut EP ‘Rest Easy’ recorded at STL Studios with producer, Sonny Truelove (Polaris, Before Their Eyes (USA), Young Lions) the Central Coast band deliver their aggressive and melancholic brand of Post-Hardcore in a variety of different flavours. The tracklist flows from tracks such as “Youth On Repeat” that race along at the pace of hardcore-punk to the anthem-like chorus’ and Jazzy outro of “Defeatist”.
Live performances carry an air of passion and frustration as vocalist Elijah Smith gradually destroys himself to a set of uncompromisingly dark lyrics whilst the band thunder along behind him.
With recent national radio play on Triple J’s Short.Fast.Loud and a Music Video feature on international streaming service Dreambound, Grim Indiana have already begun to make listeners turn their heads and pay attention.
Grim Indiana are currently outlining plans to bring ‘Rest Easy’ to NSW and the East Coast of Australia in a string of dates beginning in February 2016

Incredible music coming from the Central Coast. Great to finally see something fresh coming out of Australia, well done boys!

This is the kind of brutal I can listen to every day. I really like the breakdown around the 2 minute mark, that made me sit up. Every element you pull out of this song is really well polished and performed. Killer stuff!
