The band members – Raxit (Vocals/Samples), Rahul (Guitar/Samples), Siddharth (Bass) and Harsh (Drums) – have worked on this album over the last one year, with co-producer Ashish Manchanda of FLYING CARPET PRODUCTIONS, who is a renowned sound mixing and recording engineer for various Bollywood and Hollywood films including The Chronicles of Narnia (2005), Dev D (2009) and the currently popular music TV show, MTV Unplugged.
The 9-track album is a set of tightly constructed tracks that blend synthetic textures with more organic instrumentation, creating a sound that is bold, experimental and ultimately captivating and addictive.
“Sometimes it starts from a loop, sometimes it starts from a single riff of an acoustic guitar. And then everything around it falls into place. A lot of electronic samples have been used in parts where we wanted to fill the space and create good flow,” says Raxit, on the songwriting process on the album.
