Scotland’s local music scene has never been so exciting; meet The Indos, a shining example of the excitement and enthusiasm gripping live audiences across the country. 

We spoke exclusively to the band about the 60s, their forthcoming EP and really bad dancing . . .

Who are The Indos?

The Indos are a 5 piece rock band from Edinburgh comprising of Michael Knowles (lead Vocals/guitar), Dando Myrillas (lead guitar), Jamie Gilchrist (rhythm guitar/vocals), Robbie Gilchrist  (bass) and Greg Atkinson (drums).

How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard it?

Our sound is a mix between the blues influenced British bands of the late sixties combined with a the riff driven sounds of more recent bands like Arctic Monkeys.

Who/what influences your sound?

We are all heavily influenced by 60s music especially The WhoThe Yardbirds and The Kinks. Individually, we have varying tastes from Neil Young to (funk legend) Nile Rogers.

What can we expect from a live set of yours?

You can expect to find yourself singing along even though you don’t know the words. Expect a lot of bad dancing (band and fans alike), some cracking tunes with a few squeals thrown in, and a lot of guitar!

You have an EP coming soon. Describe it in three words?

Worth A Listen!

What’s next for The Indos?

Hopefully a wee tour early next year. The Indos coming to a town near you!
