Indians is all the work of one man, Copenhagen resident Søren Løkke Juul, who brought his band in to being when he felt the need to challenge himself and do ... Read more in Amazon's Indians Store

Product Description

BBC Review

Indians makes sense at this time of year. The works of Danish artist Søren Løkke Juul, these songs belong to days where gazing onto a frozen scene from the comfort of a heated home is a fine way to pass time. February in Denmark is the country’s coldest month, with a mean temperature of zero degrees Celsius. But with Somewhere Else on the stereo, the listener should easily chase away any chills.

This debut isn’t the most immediately transcendental, take-one-elsewhere collection; but its 10 tracks do cast a gentle spell on their audience, Søren’s slight, treated-into-ethereality vocals woven around arrangements that politely meander around elements both acoustic and electronic. At times it’s akin to Grizzly Bear at their more sedate; others, like Young Magic with the tripping tendencies dialled right down. Comparisons to Bon Iver have been made previously, and it’s easy to hear why.

Frequent evocations of predecessors takes nothing away from the obvious strengths of Søren’s songwriting – with such a stripped-back sound presented, parallels are always likely to come quickly on a cursory listen. But revisit Somewhere Else and its own qualities become more evident: Melt, coincidentally also the title of the aforementioned Young Magic’s debut LP, is a hypnotic meditation on finding strength in sorrowful situations, capped by a beautiful piano coda.

Elsewhere, Magic Kids’ slow-pulsing synths back plaintive lyrics locked in lamentation – “I like to see your eyes / But your eyes do not see any longer” – and New bubbles with warm electronics perfectly complementing a double-tracked vocal. It’d recall MGMT, if the psychedelic duo were in the business of wearing hearts on tatty sleeves rather than gleaming space helmets.

Somewhere Else certainly reveals itself slowly, but persist and there’s real beauty to be found here. Understated and unhurried, it showcases an artist whose star isn’t rapidly ascending towards the stratosphere of indie’s most celebrated. But track Søren’s continuing course starting now, as there’s potential in these quietly confident compositions, enough at least to soundtrack a handful of escapist dreams while snow drifts block one’s return to icy reality.

4.0 out of 5 stars melancholic Danish electronica 23 Feb 2013
By JasonB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this after hearing a track on the radio and I wasn't dissapointed. Full of haunting melodies and ethereal lyrics, without being over the top. Bird and Lips, Lips, Lips are the stand-outs for me but this is one of the few discs I've bought recently where I'd be happy to listen to it all the way through.

All I can say is, really cool original music.
Very melodic, interesting harmonies, textures.I can highly recommend this to people looking for an alternative to much of the mundane, mindless pop out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere Else is something else! 18 Oct 2013
By Sean T. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll keep this brief. This is a great debut album from Indians that has a very big, but soothing sound.
Think of it as a soundtrack to stargaze to. Check out the track "New". If you like that, the rest of the
album should please your ears. I'm gonna go back to listening now.

For fans of: Beach House, Sigur Ros, Lower Dens
