About East India Youth

Connecting the dots between Krautrock, ambient, Berlin-era Bowie, and dance culture via London's Docklands, producer and artist East India Youth (aka William Doyle) first came to prominence in 2012. Hailing from Bournemouth, U.K., Doyle's musical past was based in an indie band called Doyle & the Fourfathers. Self-described as a "tweedy" group, Doyle became unmoved by guitar music and found inspiration from electronic and dance culture. He subsequently quit the group and started work on his own sketches and demos. In 2013, he released the Hostel EP. It was followed by 2014's Total Strife Forever, which was nominated for a Mercury Prize. His equally impressive, more electro-pop sophomore full-length, Culture of Volume, arrived in 2015. ~ Aneet Nijjar
