🌍After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. ‘Forgetting The Future’ is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it.

For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.”

Lead single Precious is currently spinning on rotation at triple j.

Throughout a remarkable 10 year career, British India have attained four Top 10 ARIA albums, seven entries into the Hottest 100 and their single I Can Make You Love Me is also accredited Gold in Australia. The band’s previous LP, ‘Nothing Touches Me’ featured popular singles, Suddenly and Wrong Direction which have collectively accumulated over 3 million Spotify streams.
