Bio

Hailing from Melbourne, The Indigos are a new indie rock duo that are here to stay.Formed in 2020, The Indigos are singer and guitarist, Kieran Rule; guitarist, Arthur Xafis; drummer, Albert Rolfe; and bassist, Olivia Bolmat. The writing members, Xafis and Rule, met while studying Jazz at Monash University and bonded over a love of the great rock, blues, and folk songwriters of the past. They cemented their musical partnership whilst performing in a Janis Joplin tribute show, which won an award at The Adelaide Fringe Festival. The two collaborated as a duo for the first time during Melbourne’s 112 day lockdown, writing, recording and producing their debut single ‘By Your Side’ from separate sides of the isolated city. These two-of-a-kind musicians are putting a modern twist on the great songwriters of the past.

This was exactly what I wanted to hear today - something that would slow things down for the next few moments. The way you draw things out really adds to the overall longing you can feel from this track. Really pretty and a pleasure to be listening.
