indi. is the solo project of New Zealander Indira Force who also releases music with trip-hop occultists Doprah and ambient/new age duo New Dawn, as well as working on various soundtrack/soundscape projects. After spending much of her musical career collaborating with others, Precipice is the first single from her debut solo album which is due out later this year.
There’s a very Nordic vibe to the track, with nods to the obvious electronic bands from the far north, and their pulsating synth sounds; but Precipice is also layered and textured throughout with some lovely yet unsettling motifs that put me in mind of psych-folk. It’s a hard sound to put a handle on, but it’s certainly an impressive debut! By the way, if you’re not squeamish, why not check out the (probably not safe for work) video.
