HMV’s first ever unsigned artist, India Arkin is most definitely one to watch in 2022. Launching her debut album “Home Truths” in October 2022, has found the rising-star as a National Album Day ambassador alongside the likes of Sam Ryder, Franz Ferdinand, KSI and locked her down as a BBC Introducing Tips artist for 2023. India is an indie singer-song-writer based in Newcastle. Having always had artistic drive at the forefront, India originally moved to the city to study Fine Art, and began recording music for her solo project through the lockdowns in 2020. Launching her debut single “Dashboard Dancing” in August of 2021; she quickly caught the attention of the BBC, finding a heavy rotation on BBC Introducing North East and BBC Introducing Tees. Her debut EP “No Innocent Bystander” later featuring on Tom Robinsons Radio 6 Mixtape, and earning her a residency at The Sage Gateshead. India continues to tow the line between her music and fine art creative practice further as she develops herself a musician: defined by her idiosyncratic soundscapes and confessional lyricism.

Chintzy Stetson sees passing faces in collaborators. They do a take and leave. It’s a dirty motel. The ashtray should have been emptied weeks ago. But the music won’t stop playing. Even if you beg it too.

There was a woman who wore a juicy couture tracksuit, with the rhinestones on the back. She paid for the suite every Friday night. She sold drugs in bin liners and sat on the floor by the bar. She disappeared 2 years ago. I call the hotel every now and then but they say they’ve never seen her before.
