No aspect of the latest release from British India is precious, other than the title. F-bombs litter the lyrics. The vocals have an attitude that doesn’t seem suitable for someone judging what is precious. The guitars are distorted and aggressive.
An appropriate term to describe “Precious” is multi-dimensional. The classically trained voice of Ali Barter provides backing vocals for frontman Declan Melia. British India added a piano during a bridge toward the end of the track. The piano is played robustly, as are the other instruments, but its presence constructs another dimension for “Precious.”
British India is based in Melbourne, Australia. The members are Declan Melia (vocals, guitar), Matt O’Gorman (drums), Will Drummond (bass), and Nic Wilson (guitar).
