Durand Jones & The Indications are back with their third studio album and some modern soul. The group will release Private Space on July 30 on Dead Oceans in association with Colemine Records.
Lead single “Witchoo” showcases the band’s new lean towards synthy modern soul and disco beats. The combined vocals of Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer’s falsetto help the five-piece -- filled out by Blake Rhein (guitar), Steve Okonski (keys) and Mike Montgomery (bass) -- blend classic sounds with a modern twist.
"Private Space is the most complete picture yet of who we are as a band -- where we've been and where we're going,” Frazer tells Billboard in a statement. “We spent a lot of the last year separated from each other, stuck in our separate boxes. It was tough in so many ways, but it also shook us out of our rhythm and allowed us to look inward and experiment with different sounds and new approaches to our songwriting. When we finally met back up in Bloomington to write as a unit, it was a great reminder that together we're able to create music that can defy era or genre. This is not a revival; it's new, it's alive and we can't wait to show you.”
