This is an album for a person who likes a variety of music. Indira, hailing from Yale University, had songs that were constantly a work in progress before they finally landed at '1454.' As a result, there is quite the palette of colors and textures to choose from on the album. The sound shifts from folky pop on 'The Game' to funk on 'Mr. Supernatural' to a general airy feel on 'Walking' and 'Blue Ceiling' to straightforward pop on 'Stay the Same' and 'All the Way.' The eclecticism of the songwriting can be attributed to the variety of music to which the band listens. Perhaps the most unique characteristic of Indira would be it's consistent use of an alto saxophone in it's rock instrumentation. It plays many of the melodies in the songs, similar to jazz heads, but in a rock style. And no, it doesn't sound like Kenny G. See for yourself!
