Independent Country is a 6-piece band from Birmingham, UK, who play Country versions of classic Indie tunes. Their debut LP, ‘TrailerParkLife’, was released in December 2016 and features new versions of songs by Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, New Order, Teenage Fanclub, and others. Jim Reid from The Jesus and Mary Chain recently described their version of ‘Blues From A Gun’ as “the best thing I have EVER heard”.
Their 2nd album, ‘The True Adventures of Independent Country’ will be released in summer 2018. It will feature songs by Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, The Smiths, Inspiral Carpets, Spiritualized, and more.
Since their debut live show in the summer of 2016 they’ve played festivals all over the UK and have supported artists such as Karl Blau, Cale Tyson, and The Surfing Magazines. With a repertoire of over 40 songs – and counting – they play either full-band sets that’ll tear the house down on a drunken Friday night, or else a laid-back acoustic show that provides the ideal soundtrack to a regretful, hungover Sunday.
