Haunted air

The image used on the cover of the E.P is taken from a book called 'Haunted air' by Ossain Brown.

                                           Here are a couple of more shots from the book. 

The Mountain

Recently spent a day in the lakes soaking in inspiration from the Autumn air. 
Here are a few photos i took on the day. 

Change of name.

By Paul Burgess.

''Here I am with yet another outstanding new artist, Indian Summer. Indian Summer is the new project of the former No More Wolves front man Richard Smith.
The first gift Indian Summer have given to us is ‘Wishing Well’.Starting with placid guitar strums and going onto heart beating rhythm percussions  placed alongside a evocative sounding Viola, all controlled by the resonant voice of Richard Smith. Each line is sung with such genuine emotion it makes you believe every word being said.''

Tipping point

''After Sunderland's Chased By Wolves sadly called it a day earlier this year, we've been eagerly anticipating material fromIndian Summerthe new project from their frontman Richard Smith, and his first offering Wishing Well certainly doesn't disappoint. This gorgeous, spellbinding track swells with heartbreak, its delicate instrumentation used to perfect effect: a guitar is plucked gently and forlornly, the percussion pounds like heartbeats and a viola swoons with melancholy. 
Smith's earthy vocal is incredibly heartfelt, each line brimming with sincerity,leaving us hanging on his every word. Towards it's end the track takes a dive into the ethereal with whispered, repeated vocal closing on a haunting note. Smith releases his first EP, Autumn is here, and I guess I'm still in Love with You, on Halloween, and if Wishing Well is anything to go by, it'll be the perfect soundtrack to get us through the harsh winter months.''

 ''the first offering is the sublime ‘Wishing Well’. Its delicate guitar and haunting viola sit beneath tribal percussion and drums, whilst the vocal breezes over the mix''
Drowned in sound.

 ''we’ve got the first release by Indian Summer and it’s absolutely beautiful. There’ll be an EP released digitally on October 31st, and if the rest of it is as lush as Wishing Well, then the future looks pretty sweet for Smith.''
