IndigoSun was born in the late summer of 2008, when a few good friends at Roosevelt University began to explore the possibilities of electronic music. We set up outside on a rare beautiful September night on the terrace of our building, and began to improvise around the skeleton of what would become "Welcome Home." After playing for about an hour and a half, we knew that we had found something that had to be pursued.

Thus a band was forged, whose mission is to make music which combines deep melody and lyrical simplicity with intense rhythmic complexity, but which first has the ultimate purpose of groovin. With this goal in mind, we've set to work on creating original music which showcases our instrumental skills, carries real meaning, and creates a strong connection between the audience and us as performers.

At times the music is reminiscent of (and is influenced by) groups like Lotus, STS9, and Big Gigantic, at others it brings the funk in a way The Meters and Medeski, Martin, and Wood could get down to. At the same time we are ultimately working to create an individual sound which inhabits its own world, apart from the above groups which have been influential to us.

In both our written and improvised work we use the whole spectrum of musical expression, emanating vibes that at times bring ecstatic joy and others contemplative darkness, taking the listener on a psychedelic voyage through our artistic universe. The music goes in many directions, and ideally we will fall into new ideas every time we play, but our ultimate goal is to never stop groovin, and make the audience feel everything we do.
