British India are an Australian indie rock band from Melbourne. The band comprises lead vocalist, guitarist Declan Melia, guitarist Nic Wilson, bassist Will Drummond and drummer Matt O'Gorman. They have released six studio albums.
The members of British India met at high school in 2004 whilst attending St. Bede's College, in Melbourne, Victoria.  Reportedly social misfits throughout high school, the band would converge during school lunchtimes and study periods to rehearse and compose in the school music room. The band later relocated to drummer Matt O'Gorman's parents shed.
