Indigo Children has been a part of the indie music circuit since 2004, so it’s surprising that it kept its fans waiting almost eight years for a debut album. "Yes, we took our time because our lineup wasn’t stable. It was only in 2008 that we got comfortable with the members and the sound of the band. Also, we’re trying to make good music to please ourselves and there’s never been pressure to come out with an album," explains lead vocalist Sanchal Malhar, who also writes and produces music for the rock ‘n’ roll outfit.

GuitarApart from him, the band also features RN Jaidev Rishiyoor (guitars), Nikhil Rufus Raj (bassist) and Sahil Mendiratta (drummer). Before they offer their debut album, which is currently being recorded, the band is releasing two songs, ‘Why don’t you follow me down’ and ‘Jesus was a mushroom’. "Since we haven’t released any tracks for a long time, we decided to put out these new songs, which we worked on a couple of months ago," says Malhar.

To promote the songs, the band is also embarking on a four-city tour. They’ll hit the stage tonight at Blue Frog before traveling to Pune and Hyderabad, besides performing in their home city too. "We are trying to hook up gigs at Bengaluru and Kolkata also," says Malhar.

The singles will be available for online download on and Indigo Children’s pages on Facebook and Reverbnation. In the past, the band has also opened for international artistes such as Bryan Adams, Your Code Name is Milo, Freak Kitchen, Intronaut and Benea Reach.

Sanchal promises that their debut album should be out before the year ends. "We wrote most of these songs in 2008 and since then, have been mulling over them. Now we’re trying to realise these ideas. The album should be out in a couple of months."
