Live Gig Video: East India Youth performs four tracks live for Seattle radio station KEXP

In April and May of this year, London-based electronic musician / jack of all trades East India Youth, better known to his mum as Will Doyle, toured North America in support of his brand new second album ‘Culture of Volume’, the first on his new label, Beggars imprint XL Recordings. (Read my review of the brill LP here.) One of his stops was in Seattle, home to the storied and always supportive to indie artists radio station KEXP, who invited Doyle in for a live session and a brief interview with the ever present KEXP studio stars for a backdrop.

In this live video, ‘Culture of Volume’ tracks ‘Turn Away’, ‘Beaming White’ and ‘Hearts That Never’, along with tearjerker ‘Looking for Someone’ from the East India Youth 2014 Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Total Strife Forever’ are offered up in stellar performances by Doyle. Tonight at Brighton Haunt is his third to last gig on his current UK tour; he plays London Village Underground in Shoreditch Thursday and Ramsgate Music Hall on Friday.
