Last year,a friend told me about this new band with a classic soul sound....she said I would love them and she was right.I heard their debut album and liked it alot.Now they're back with their second album 'American Love Call' and I like it even more than the debut! smile This is retro-soul at its finest.

Harmonies Are Out of Styl...ling Stone

Harmonies Are Out of Style. This Soul Group Is Trying to Change That

Durand Jones & the Indications’ new album American Love Call channels the sound of Seventies vocal ensembles

When Durand Jones & the Indications released their self-titled debut album in 2016, it didn’t take long for them to notice that fans were gravitating to a particular track: “Is It Any Wonder,” a lolling, pretty soul ballad, with sharp rim-shots puncturing long lines of prepubescent falsetto from drummer Aaron Frazer. “When the album came out, within a few months there were CD bootlegs with our song on them on eBay,” remembers guitarist Blake Rhein.

These mix CDs serve as currency for fans of lowrider soul, a constituency of R&B fans with strong links to Chicano car culture. Their quick embrace of the Indications was surprising — the band were newcomers on a small, independent Midwestern label, and “Is It Any Wonder” was originally a demo that was supposed to be re-sung by Jones. But, “the lowrider community is so massive and so involved,” says Rhein, that the Indications suddenly “connected with a lot of Latinx fans from Texas all the way up to Northern California,” according to Frazer. “That has been a huge core of our fanbase,” the drummer adds.

Lowrider soul is notable for its emphasis on group singing, its connection to doo-wop harmony and its embrace of fragile, unabashedly pretty ballads. All of those approaches have largely disappeared from pop’s mainstream, and that’s part of their appeal for the Indications. “We realized really quickly that when we sing together, it’s something that you just don’t see now,” Frazer says. “There are no harmonies [in modern pop]; it’s front-person driven; it’s not diffused at all.”
