DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS
Durand Jones & the Indications aren’t looking backwards. Helmed by foil vocalists in Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer, the Indications conjure the dynamism of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, and The Impressions. Though their aesthetic is steeped in the golden dreaminess of early ‘70s soul, the Indications are planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time.
Their most recent album, American Love Call, is a sprawling and limitless equation. Fleshed out by the elegance of strings, a chorus of backing vocals, and an ambition to prove and push themselves, the split leads between Jones’ husky howl and Frazer’s dulcet falsetto lend a dynamic punch to the group’s timeless sound.
