“We joke about being old, but what’s old when it comes to music,” asks Saliers. “We’re still a bar band at heart. Our passion for music is the same as when we were 25.”
Produced by John Reynolds (Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey) and recorded in the countryside outside Bath, England at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, Look Long’s eleven songs have tender, revealing movement, like if they were feeding into a Super 8 film projector, illuminating a dark living room.
“When We Were Writers” recounts the flying sparks and passion Saliers felt as a young student when the duo began performing together. “s Kickin'” is a nuanced love letter to Ray’s Southern heritage. “I’m a little left of the ‘salt of the earth’ / It’s okay, I’m gonna prove my worth,” she sings.

Crowd chants that often overpower the band itself are a hallmark of Indigo Girls concerts. With the duo back on the road, amphitheaters across the country will once again fill with the sound of these collective voices raised in song. The phenomenon embodies the sense of community that defines Indigo Girls music.
As a bar band once said, “We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains…we go to the Bible, we go all the way.” For millions they go to Indigo Girls. On Look Long, they will find a creative partnership certain of its bearings, forging a path forward.
