New Post-Rock Band From Ahmedbad - As We Keep Searching

  • Published in Latest News

AWKS1

Post rock is a relatively unexplored territory in India yet. Being largely instrumental with minimal to no vocals, it is easy to sound pleasant with post rock but tough to sustain it for some minutes and not become monotonous. One such band is Ahmedabad based As We Keep Searching, a three member outfit formed in 2013. With influences such as God is an Astronaut, Karnivool, Tool and Mutemath, the music is largely post rock. As for the theme, the band keeps it open and tries to express the emotions and life experiences of the band members, are a bunch of old friends.

 

Their debut single that was released in early December, ‘The Tattva’, is a mix of delicate and riffed guitar portions and spaced out vocals in Hindi. The instrumentation is intense, and the track slightly lengthy, but has enough diverse parts to keep the ears interested. The band was also quick to come out with an experimental music video in the next two weeks, which only betters the experience of an ambient track.

 

It’s a different sound coming from Gujarat, and members of AWKS feel 2014 is going to be an important year for this experiment of theirs. As of now, we can await the release of their second single ‘Aakorxon’ on Jan. 10th and follow the guys here:

Goddess Gagged-Resurfaces

GODDESS GAGGED. A name I’ve been particularly keeping a watch out for. I don’t want to compartmentalise their music but I see a plethora of sounds in their music- PORCUPINE TREE, KARNIVOOL, TEXTURES, OCEANSIZE and a good amount of Post-Hardcore influences, each an elite from its respective genre of music. It is pretty cool how the GODDESS GAGGED sound has been shaped from a variety of these influences. I have mentioned the names of artists along with a review of each track to give a flavour of the album.

IMR: Hello, Akshat Vaze! Okay, so before starting with the interview, it would be great if you could give a brief run-down about the bands origin since younger days?
Akshat Vaze(WGCF): WGCF started off as a onetime thing for me and the drummer, Aashish, back last year when it wasn’t a band. We were called to be a part of the instrumentation of a German theatre group known as "Bunte Buehne" which was a part of "Max Mueller Bhavan" here in Pune. So we, I don’t know why, stuck around for a couple of months and we played around. We actually started off as a German cover band. We officially started off in July/ August of 2010.

Rosemary-A Legacy Of Ruined Days(E.P)

Alternative Rock is a nascent little creature in our culture. It’s hard to define what exactly it sounds like since the term is usually employed as an umbrella to describe a wide spectrum of musical styles. Mumbai band ROSEMARY has been a target of observation ever since they won Strawberry Fields and showed promise of becoming interesting practitioners of their own unique style of Alt Rock/ Alt Grunge. The trio have finally arrived with their first EP called THE LEGACY OF RUINED DAYS and a disappointment it certainly is not!
