On The Rise: Mandy, Indiana

Recorded in caves, crypts, and shopping centers, Mandy, Indiana’s debut album i’ve seen a way is everywhere at once.

Theirs is music made from their place within the world, and is a sound that arrived fully-realized from their very first singles: “We have no agenda,” says band member Scott Fair. “The music is chaotic and we draw from every genre we can think of. By our nature we are amorphous – this is often used pejoratively, but we consider it to be a wholly positive quality.”  Though painstakingly crafted, where Mandy, Indiana thrives is the unexpected – and the resulting album sounds like nothing that has come before it.
