INDYA REVEALS NEW SINGLE & VIDEO.
INDYA releases her brand new single, Gimme Ya Luv, which arrived via all streaming sites on Friday 12th July. The track is a blistering slab of hard-hitting glamour rock complete with haunting guitars and engulfing vocal lines. The video for the single can be viewed now.
INDYA is the performance title of solo artist Natalie Indya West. Prior to INDYA, Natalie studied music and dance, performing in a series of musicals, as well as dancing at the Brit Awards. However, Natalie has always had rock ‘n’ roll flowing through her veins. As a child she was absorbed and engrossed by Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Janis Joplin,and Deep Purple, and then later went on to become heavily influenced by Marilyn Manson and Bring Me The Horizon. Natalie soon switched directions from dance and musicals to pursue the call for a heavy glamour rock ‘n ‘roll sound. In 2015, Natalie formed INDYA, assembling a band around her to lay a platform for her solo musical endeavours.
INDYA recorded her debut EP, Strip Me Down, soon after, and it proved a major success. The EP yielded over 28,000 downloads and picked up critical acclaim from Radio X’s Jon Holmes, who branded INDYA as “the new female Royal blood”. The record was also backed by Johnny Doom at Kerrang! Radio. Since then, INDYA has gone on to receive the support of Jools Holland, Powerplay Magazine, Devolution, Terrozier, and Kerrang Radio. INDYA has also widely toured and, to date, has supported everyone from Republica and The Darkness, through to Scarlet Riot and Black Orchard Empire, as well as gracing stages at a number of festivals such as Mammothfest, Glastonbudget, and Camden Rocks, to name just a few.
INDYA is currently working on her forthcoming new album, Rebel Music, with esteemed producer Dave Needham of Darkhorse Studio, and mixer James Lerock Loughrey. The first single from the album, Tha Final Line, actually features Johnny Doom (Kerrang Radio) and the album also includes her stunning new single, Gimme Ya Luv. 2019 is destined to be the year that INDYA shines brightly.
