British India burst onto the Australian independent music scene in 2007 with their brilliant debut, Guillotine. The album included the singles ‘Black & White Radio’, ‘Tie Up My Hands’ and the #22 ARIA Single ‘Run The Red Light’. It took out the AIR Award for Best New Independent Artist and received a J Award Nomination for Album Of The Year.
Just one year on, the band returned with their new LP Thieves, which landed comfortably at #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and featured the hits ‘I Said I’m Sorry’, ‘God Is Dead (Meet The Kids)’ and ‘This Dance Is Loaded’. Thieves saw the band score an ARIA Award nomination for Best Independent Release and backed up the band’s growing reputation as a formidable force.
A little under two years on, in 2010, and British India were back with Avalanche. Loaded with their first commercial hit ‘Beneath The Satellites’ and indie-rock gems ‘Avalanche’ and ‘Vanilla’, it made its debut at #10 in the ARIA Albums Chart, successfully rounding out British India’s independent trilogy.
In 2012, British India turned a new corner in their career, signing to Liberation Music. In March of the following year, they released their highly anticipated fourth album, Controller. The album featured the band’s first ever gold-selling single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’, and earned British India their third consecutive ARIA Top 10 debut. Also including radio favourites ‘Summer Forgive Me’, ‘Plastic Souvenirs’ & ‘Blinded’, the 10 tracks on Controller saw British India at their finest and most assured form to date.
British India are currently writing new material for their fifth album.
