Indian School

Indian School

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA (USA)


The average person will get into one major car accident in their lifetime. In the case of Singer/Songwriter Arturo Barrios he got into two(all within an 8 month period)." I hadn't written music for years before my accidents. After the second car crash I was bedridden for months...my back and neck were completely wrecked. I just laid there watching Netflix content to do nothing really when I thought, hey... why not start writing songs again".

The result was reuniting former members of the now defunct Los Angeles based punk band Audio Karate, who had toured relentlessly for 4 years and released two records through Kung Fu Records." We strongly considered keeping the moniker of Audio Karate, but with AK in the past and new members... this felt like and is a new start". Now Based out of Rosemead, CA. Indian School blends influences such as The Replacements, Guided By Voices, Descendents and My Morning Jacket to create Indian School.

In 2012 Indian School are set to release their debut EP titled " The Cruelest Kind". Mixed by Shawn Sullivan(Mars Volta, Saosin, Reel Big Fish) the EP will be released digitally and physically in the UK by Walnut Tree Records(Cuba Cuba, The Wonder Years)
