BRITISH INDIA ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
Forgetting The Future is the 6th studio album from Melbourne rock royalty British India. Featuring current single ‘Precious’, it’s set for release on September 22 via the hyped team at Liberation. Today the band are also excited to reveal the visually arresting video for ‘Precious’.
After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. Forgetting The Future is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.”
Lead single ‘Precious’ is currently spinning on rotation at triple j. Its stylistic new video comes courtesy of the talented team at Oh Yeah Wow. Smoke, colour and flames surround the band, as visuals vividly portray the tragic beauty of momentary bliss. It’s incredibly executed and out now for your viewing pleasure.
