Mandy, Indiana

+ Velocity Made Good

Fri 23 Feb
For fans of
Gilla Band, Scalping, Model/Actriz

Overwhelming mix of techno and post-punk with French vocals

The name Mandy, Indiana can be a bit misleading: the band doesn’t come from the United States but from Manchester and is led by a French lead singer. Their overwhelming sound sits at the intersection of post-punk and techno, combined with the powerful French vocals of Valentine Caulfield. Just listen to their breakthrough track ‘Alien 3,’ and you’ll immediately understand what we’re talking about. In the spring of 2023, everything came together on their debut album ‘i’ve seen a way,’ which received high praise from Pitchfork, OOR, and Dansende Beren. Live, they manage to double the intensity of their songs, making them a standout act at festivals like Motel Mozaique, Roadburn, and Freaky Dancing. Fans of Scalping, Working Men’s Club, and Gilla Band: you won’t want to miss this show.

Support: Velocity Made Good

Velocity Made Good is cutting, direct, and dangerous. Armed with synths, guitar, and live drums, the shows of this duo range from a calm stillness to a heavy storm, combining refined EBM and electronics with rock influences. In the summer of 2023, the two undertook a residency on the Wadden Sea, writing the material for their live show while sailing, with microphones in the mast and modulars in the forepeak. The music that has emerged from this is their personal interpretation of the place they come from, which they bring to the dance floor with intense energy.
