The Indications (Durand Jones – vocals, Aaron Frazer – drums/vocals, Blake Rhein – guitar, Steve Okonski – keys) are equally beloved for their energetic, joyous shows, dual lead singers and thoughtful songwriting. Between production work, solo efforts and major sold-out shows, Durand Jones & The Indications continue on an unstoppable upswing. With live music temporarily out of the equation, The Indications were able to dive deep into recording their third LP. They carved out their own private space for creation and are now sharing it with you.
Uptempo tracks like “Witchoo,” “The Way That I Do” and “Sea of Love” conjure the flicker of a disco ball, their pop-funk grooves recalling Idris Muhammad and Raphael Saadiq as well as Pete Rock and DJ Premier. After reconnecting and shaking off your gloom on the dancefloor, Private Space’s seductive nod to Philadelphia soul invites you to head back home and ease into a room with a lover. You’ll slow it down as the group evokes the likes of Teddy Pendergrass, the Isley Brothers and Sylvia on “Ride or Die” or “More Than Ever” (“I’ve never felt so sexy as when I was singing that track,” says Durand).
