Shine

Shine is the sixth studio album by Indica and the second in English. It was released along with Akvaario. It has been 4 years since the last Indica album, A Way Away. Shine was actually complete long before its release, but tough contract negotiations created many delays. According to Jonsu, shine "...has been one of the most difficult things that we have faced so far on our journey with the girls." According to the release article from Nuclear Blast, "The result is a conjuring essential Symphonic-Pop creation, with sparkling character, beautiful catchy melodies and lots of soul." The album was released by Nuclear Blast on January 24th, 2014.


„Melancholic Fairy Pop, that touches all senses with witty sex appeal and still knows how to rock. A really versatile creation of the Finnish ladies full of hit potential – tasty!”
SONIC SEDUCER (D), Jasmin Froghy

“Rocking, sweet as sugar and glazed with Finnish melancholy. This is the INDICA sound!”
METAL HAMMER (D), Enrico Ahlig

"Those who thought that INDICA would fade like a shooting star on the music sky were wrong. With »Shine« the ladies present some persistently glowing melodies, whose softness will also seduce any seasoned Rocker.“
PIRANHA (D), Christoph Kutzer

"Like a paper boat on the Finnish lakes, light, melancholic and driven by the winds.“
AMUSIO.COM (D), Anne C. Swallow

„INDICA seduce on their new pop rock jewel with straight, enchanting tracks full of melancholy and beguiling beauty. Every song will get right into your mind.”
EMP (D), Adam Weishaupt
