Originally from Durban, South Africa, Conan crossed paths with Andrew and Dallyn soon after his arrival in Canada. After attending their final years of school together, they all seemed to be leading different paths until Conan decided to initiate play. He called Andrew, the only bassist he knew in town, and Dallyn, a drummer who he had played with in past summers.
The three friends had come together in Dallyn’s basement for a fun musical release, nothing serious. They soon realized there was more musical chemistry than initially thought.
Officially formed in late November of 2012, Little India has accomplished quite a bit in their lifespan thus far. Their first show was in January 2013 as an opening act. Before their set had even finished, the event promoter and venue had booked them for two headlining shows in the months to come. They have since headlined many venues around local Vancouver and have shared stages that have belonged to acts such as Atlas Genius, The 1975, The Drums, Jets Overhead, and many more.
Their debut EP, “Up All Night”, released November 19th 2013, was mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Rolling Stones, Atlas Genius, The Vaccines, and many more). The 1st single “Sleep” has over 880,000 streams on Spotify to date. “Oola” will be the next single and the official video will be released in Spring 2015 and will be directed by Matt Leaf (Hedley, Bear Mountain, The Pack A.D.). The song already has over 23,000 streams to date on Soundcloud and remixes of the song have over 1000,000 streams
In August the band also won CFOX Vancouver’s Fox Seeds contest. Previous winners include Nickelback, Daniel Wesley, Matthew Good, Faber Drive and more. The band also won The Shore FMs Best Of BC Contest earlier this year.
With a Spring Canadian Tour & UK Tour on the horizon and a full length album to be released later this year 2015 is shaping up to be the band’s biggest year yet.
