Mercury Music Prize nominee William Doyle, better known by his stage name East India Youth, is an electronic music songwriter displaying an artistry and craftsmanship that is beyond his years.
We recently had the chance to sit down with the Bournemouth native and talk at length about the music industry, the struggles that accompany his equipment laden live shows and the right and wrong ways on using social media for getting your music out to the masses.
Doyle seems to be using East India Youth as a unique vehicle to push the boundaries of songwriting within electronic music. “I don’t consider myself part of any scene or something like that,” he reflects.
“For me, it’s interesting, I’m incorporating elements of indie rock and electronic music, or songwriting or instrumental stuff. That is what keeps me going, incorporating and blending all those influences in one.” he told us at March’s SXSW Festival.
