British India are an Australian indie rock band who formed in Melbourne in 2004 and currently consists of Declan Melia, Nic Wilson, Will Drummond and Matt O’Gorman.

The band all originally met whilst attending high school in Melbourne, the same line up has remained unchanged to date. British India began as a cover band, performing renditions of classics by the likes of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Beatles and Blur. They toured tirelessly across Australia for a year until receiving their record deal with In-Fidelity Recordings in 2005. They released their debut EP ‘Counter Culture’ which featured their first single ‘Outside 109 / Automatic Blitzkrieg’.

On the back of the EP they received support from the likes of Triple J in Australia, yet the band spent a couple of years to perfect their debut rather than capitalising on early hype. They released a preceding single ‘Tie Up My Hands’ and their album ‘Guillotine’ in 2007 which went on to be nominated for Triple J’s J Award and scooped the Best New Independent Artist award at the AIR Awards. It also featured a hit single ‘Run The Red Light’ which peaked at #22 on the Australian chart.

The follow-up album ‘Thieves’ was released the following year and charted at #5 on the album charts. Since then they have released two more LPs, both of which charted with the top 10 of the ARIA chart. The 2012 single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’ has now been certified as gold selling.
