East India Youth - FUV Live - 2015

by Kara Manning

Nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2014 for his ambitious debut album Total Strife Forever, East India Youth's William Doyle didn't initially set out to be a solo artist. Back in 2010 his band, Doyle and the Forefathers, was getting a fair bit of attention in Britain. But the young singer felt himself drifting from guitar-driven indie rock. On the side, Doyle was composing electronic music, inspired by Brian Eno and Steve Reich. That ancillary project received Doyle's full-time focus when his band broke up in 2012.
