Indignu is a band from Barcelos, Portugal. They have been around for quite some time now with this album being the follow-up to their 2013 full-length 'Odyssea" and 'Fetus In Fetu' in 2010. Like many bands in their genre, they seem inspired by the great ones of shoegaze and post rock, including Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky and so on. And that is exactly what they produce as well: high quality post rock music which is pretty much always a pleasure to listen to. However, the one thing that elevates this band, is the use of violins and classical arrangements, giving the music that extra cinematic touch.
The six tracks on this album are vintage post rock anthems, equally immersive and epic as some of your all time favorite tracks in this genre. The bass and drums provide a solid grasp while the rest of the band guides you through elaborate musical landscapes. The songs are well thought-out and perfectly alternate between these gentle passages with classical or folkish arrangements and thick walls of guitars. Oh, let's just face it, this is a brilliant piece of post rock, even if you heard all the elements before. These people are damn good at what they do and I hope they'll be doing this for a long time to come, possibly including some stage performances in Belgium?
