"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. Even with an aesthetic steeped in the golden, strings-infused dreaminess of early 70s soul, the Indications’ sophomore album, ‘American Love Call’, is planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time. The Indications’ 2016 self-titled debut was the product of friends who met as students at Indiana University in Bloomington, In., recorded for $452.11, including a case of beer. ‘American Love Call’ is instead the record the Indications dreamed of making, fleshed out with strings, backing vocals and a newfound confidence in songwriting. Blending a slew of influences from years spent crate-digging, guitarist Blake Rhein says the Indications approach songs in the same way hip hop producers do - as likely to pull inspiration from 70s folk-rock or classic R&B as they are Nas’ ‘Illmatic’. “Did I expect to do this shit once I got out of college? Hell no,” Jones relays, laughing. “Totally not. But this is what God is telling me to do - move and groove. So I’m gonna stay in my lane.”"
