Indianizer was born in 2013, sprung from the minds of some psychonauts drawing their inspirations from Animal Collective's wild frenzies and Django Django's tropical rhytms. Following two self-financed EPs (Pandas - 2013 and Jungle Beatnik – 2014), their Neon Hawaii full-length album (Edison Box/PBP – 2015) was released in 2015 – thanks to this debut album the band toured in Italy and Europe (one of the best 50 albums of 2015 according to Noisey). The new single Mazel Tov II is being released in January 2018 via Musica Altra, with the support of remixes by Don’t Dj, Passenger and Las Hermanas. The new Zenith album is being released in spring 2018, via Musica Altra again.
Zenith marks the entrance of a far more personal and self-aware sound that still enshrines a different approach in composition and arrangement rather then Neon Hawaii: the tracks, being sung in English, Spanish and an invented language, result from free and wild jam sessions, with the vocals being addedd later, so to outline unpredictable structures. Organic, acid, synthetic and space sounds wrapping around a perpetual and obsessive rhythmic pulse, in the quest for an unreachable catharsis - the emotional intensity peaks up, reaching its Zenith, and then blows up and flows out in the universe. As if Meridian Brothers met King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard in the middle of the desert and stared at the parabolic curve that the sun draws in the sky. Zenith is the search for a perhaps non-existing cosmic Father, providing love and life just like the Sun does, dispersing shadows and doubts, but that may destroy everything he has just created, thus becoming dangerous and mortal, right at the peak of his path.
