The Thin Air

AAA: East India Youth @ Mercury Lounge, NYC


We head Stateside for this installment of AAA (Access All Areas) with William Doyle aka East India Youth as he kicked off his brief U.S tour in New York’s mercury lounge, before joining Welsh veteran of quirk, Gruff Rhys, over on the west coast for a string of support dates. Doyle, with his small crew, had just landed in from London as our photographer Joe Laverty caught up with them to capture proceedings. After taking in some of East Houston street’s immediate attractions such as Katz Diner (the diner where Harry met Sally!) the serious business of winning over (new) New York fans begins Doyle’s mix of energetic gloom, kraut and electronic soundscapes are right at home in the drenched New York surroundings tonight. Check out Joe’s photos in gallery below for an overview of the entire night.
