FOR FANS OF: Issues, Dance Gavin Dance, Volumes, Holding Absence, Woe Is Me.
Have you ever thought, ‘gee, I love post-hardcore! but it just isn’t sad enough.’ Let’s introduce you to Indighxst, New Jersey’s rising three-piece bringing you the eccentric upbeat instrumentals with heart smashing lyrics akin to Paramore’s ‘After Laughter.’
Comprised of vocalist Wesley Ayala, guitarist and producer Denly Morisset, and bassist Bryan Quiroga, this trio crashed into the scene with their emotionally grappling ‘The Veil // The Crown’ ep in 2016. Since then they’ve been teasing fans with small but mighty singles, “Ride”, “Pyromance”, and “Vision.”
However, Indighxst aren’t as fresh-faced as you might think. Paying their dues as underground veterans of the scene since 2012, “Pyromance” is arguably what finally had people tuned in, racking up 300,000+ streams alone.
Their recent release brings us to the gut-wrenchingly sad “Limbo”, due for release on December 1st, the track is said to detail Ayala’s complicated relationship with drugs and his mental health that drove him to a very dark place.
We sat down with Indighxst so they could tell you exactly why YOU need to check them out asap.
