I've heard 3 new Indica songs. A Way Away was just remakes, but it was still awesome. Especially Children of Frost. I was a little pessimistic about the new album, it's taken so long. After hearing the new songs, I was awe struck. I can honestly say I think any song is good if it's sung by Jonsu, but Indica really outdid themselves with these new songs. Usually the songs were good for for the Lyrics, and singing/playing, but now they seem to pack a melodic punch! The melody is the most powerful part of music in my opinion; it takes the most talent to write a good one. Even from the horribly garbled recordings, I can already tell this might be their best Album.

Thanks to Justyna Szumiec for showing me the links.

Yesterday evening I was listening "Missing" and "Mountain made of stone" first time and in my opinion, "Missing" sounds a little bit like american pop, especially the refrain. But I think, when I'll hear it in good quality, it would be better.
"Mountain made of stone" is wonderful. And the third one too :)

I love Mountain Made of Stone. Not too sure how I feel about the other two right now though. Really really want to hear the album now... hope there's news soon.

I like the unnamed song the most. I'd just so upbeat.

Missing feels like a 90s song. I know Jonsu likes the The Cranberries, so it makes sense to do something similar. I like it.

Mountain Made of Stone...I feel it could have been so much better. I think the melody should have built more before she goes into "I am what I am." It kinda cuts off. I still really like it though.

I have to admit, I was very sceptical about the new songs, but after hearing even the less-then-stellar quality YouTube version, I feel a bit more relaxed about the new album. I still do hope they record a Finnish version of the album as well, though, as unlikely as it is.
My thoughts on the new songs:

I'm not sure how I feel about Missing. It's so-so, and I'm not gonna judge until I hear the studio version, or at least a better recording from the gig, if one exists.

The unnamed song (well, the name is unknown, so I'll just call it Unknown for now) seems pretty upbeat and catchy. I'm actually surprised I like it, but I like it.

Mountain Made Of Stone... I honestly hope this is what the studio recording sounds like, minus the crowd noises and whatnot. It seems to me Jonsu's English singing has improved, and it really shows in this song, and not just because the video is in good quality (kudos to the uploader for the video, btw).

I feel like both Unknown and Mountain Made Of Stone (hah, that rhymed) have potential to be released as singles. I guess time will tell.

To be honest, it seems like Jonsu has tried to force her accent away when she records. Her voice seems to have more and more power every year. I like her frail sounding voice she uses in some songs, it makes the song sound mysterious and innocent. I would actually like her to show more of her beautiful accent in her singing.

I don't think I heard the word "Berlin" in the words. That complicates my song game thread. At least we know the name of it now, thanks.

Yeah, it makes more sense.
I don't want to judge the songs too much based on YouTube vids with bad sound, but I've got to say that I somehow like this more pop-ish sound in Goodbye to Berlin, as well as well as the more movie-like Mountain Made of Stone. As for Missing, I'm still indifferent.

*still waiting for 720p videos to pop up out of nowhere*

I just don't want to judge the new songs by these bad recordings... right now all I can say about the songs is that I dislike the guitar in the chorus of "Mountain made of stone" and that it feels weirder than I expected to listen to new english songs.

Guitar in chorus is perfect. So simple, yet so effective. Intro on the other hand sounds too generic, but that's probably because it's live and hopefully will be better on the album.

In general I agree with SBN. Mountain(s) Made of Stone is the best among the three. It is epic and sublime. I also wish that they will change nothing in it. Intro is especially beautiful in this song. It is one of the best Indica songs ever, too. 2nd place - Good Bye to Berlin, so coool despite the fact that it is poppy. 3rd place - Missing. And I like all 3 songs. Jonsu's singing is better than on AWA (I mean from lingustic point of view - her English is natural now, at AWA (which is great album) it was "English sung by foreigner")

Maybe I'm biased because I think Mountains Made of Stone had more potential coming from Jonsu. Like someone mentioned before, the intro was generic, so maybe the album version will be better. I like Indica's poppy side. I know Indica's theme is sad/mystic/dreamy since A Way Away, but in the past they have pulled off "children's music", pop, jazz, rock, etc. Indica is able to be good at any sub genre, and I think they can keep their most powerful sad/mystic/dreamy feel and still try a new happier poppier style. I like it, as I saw with Goodbye to Berlin, they can come up with some extremely catchy pop stuff.

I was somehow... a bit afraid to listen to the new songs. But when I did, I was positively surprised.

I had not followed Indica very much lately (the band not having that much public activity near me and new releases was a contributing factor), but when I heard the songs and thought they sounded cool, it kind of started a fever in me. Suddenly I feel like I'm starving for more Indica stuff, and when I found out about their upcoming gig in Helsinki, I immediately bought a ticket.

I was so nervous. My heart was pounding...and...THEY DID IT! It sounded amazing!

We know titles from two new songs from "Shine":
-Behind the Walls
-Hush Now Baby

The second one sounds like lullaby to me.

Well, it says the songs address problems with good friends, so it could be something of a comfort song, or a "let's stop fighting" song.

Looking back, it seems I liked the live performance of Goodbye To Berlin. I wish the final studio recording will be better, different, or whatever than the leaked version that was on Soundcloud, which I really didn't like.

Somehow, I don't have a very good feeling about the new album, I don't know why. Hopefully it'll change my mind once it's actually out.

At First I was quite shocked about their new direction. Now I just think, it's simply something different, and at least the less melancholic more popish style is probably gonna gain them more listeners among the mainstream-fans. Or maybe the rest of the songs on album are different, and these just happen to be the "single-material" type of songs, that they wanted to release first. And if their new direction doesn't work, they can always switch back to their usual style.

A Definite Maybe - I was hooked from the 1st listen. It's popish and has great simple lyrics. Melody and vocals are top notch.

Goodbye to Berlin - This song is very so-so. Just not the kind of song i like that much. Not bad though.

Missing - The 1st time i heard the live version i thought this is going to be a single. The chorus is stunning. Hit potential.

Mountain made of Stone - At least the live version sounds that it will be one of the best Indica songs ever.

Ashanee's text for "A Definite Maybe"

Indica - A Definite Maybe


Maybe I’m looking for a muse
Someone who’s too good to be true
No fun in being satisfied

A new fixation everyday
Someone to waste the hours away
And then you fell out of the sky

I love you, I love you not
I love you, I love you
Not today and not tomorrow
Nothing blue and nothing borrowed
Call me sometime or call me crazy
No no yes yes
Take a good guess
All I got is a definite maybe
I know, I know, I know, I know
No, no, no, no
I know, I know, I know, I know

A kiss is like a sugar high
And I’ve been jonesing all my life
Why would I ever wanna choose
Love’s like my favorite candy store
Keeps me coming back for more
I never give my heart too soon


I love you, I love you not
I love you, I love you
Not today and not tomorrow
Nothing blue and nothing borrowed
Call me sometime or call me crazy
No no yes yes
Take a good guess
All I got is a definite maybe
I know, I know, I know, I know
No, no, no, no
I know, I know, I know, I know

I must confess that after a short break and a few listenings a really liked ,,Ala kanna pelkoa" it has a mysterious power in the chorus. :lol: Definite Maybe has a nice melody and I think it'll sound better live, just like Goodbye to Berlin. What is making me angry is fans' reaction. Some of them have been writing really disgusting comments on Indica's facebook page. I think we should support the ladies, critize them, but being honest not rude. Especially in such a hard times for the band.

I haven't been listening the new songs very often, because I want to be surprised when the album is released, but now I did, and I finally found out, that Missing is an english version of Älä Kanna Pelkoa. Yeah, I'm such a genious, I know :D

Has it already been a month since this was posted? Damn.

Still, it beats the previous "on indefinite hiatus" status. Wonder if they'll get Emppu as a full-time guitarist if/when the next album rolls around.
