We pride ourselves in being a non-conventional choir both in our teaching methods and choice of repertoire. As our name suggests, we love Indie music but we’re also prone to belting out the odd pop/rock/folk/disco/funk/bluegrass/americana/traditional, etc song. Anything from Bowie to Bronski Beat and Neil Young to Orbital. Nothing is off the cards!More +
Everything is taught by ear using participatory methods and our repertoire is both nostalgic and current while also being a tad daring at times!! We are known for putting our own spin on some well-known and not so well known songs with our original arrangements.
We love performing live and recording. Since our humble beginnings back in October 2015 we have performed in many festivals around the country and also recorded videos with local and national artists and bands such as "In the Willows and Emma Langford.
In 2021 we were placed in the top 30 indie covers for our version of The Stone Roses - She Bangs the Drums.
