The trio of psych pop act Indianapolis Jones are something of an indie rock All Star band as Tim Smith has played with Jellyfish, Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds, Umajets and The Producers; Nicholas Niespozdani has played with Y-O-U, Limozeen, Yacht Rock Revue, and Please PleaseRock Me; and Jason Nackers has played with Second Shift and Constellations.
Their recently released self-titled debut EP employs the use of layers upon layers of synths, earnestly sung vocals, and room shaking drums in a way that sounds extremely familiar – you’d likely compare their sound to Ishi, Cut Copy, and countless others, as it’s slickly produced without losing it’s heartfelt sensibility. (Interestingly, their lead vocalist’s voice has an uncanny resemblance to Incubus’ Brandon Boyd.)
“Loss Is The Law Of The World,” is one of the first singles from the new album, and it’s hook is something that has just stuck in my head since the first time I’ve played it. Indeed, loss is the law of the world.
