'Confused pop' band Faridkot spice up 'Phir Se' with electronic music

MUMBAI: Electronic music has become quite a rage in India over the last few years, which has resulted in more bands and musicians using that trance effect in their music. That same trance feeling can now be felt in 'confused pop' band- Faridkot's second album 'Phir Se'.

Lead guitarist Rajarshi Sanyal told Radioandmusic.com, "We listen to a lot of rock and roll music and Indian music that is not just limited to Bollywood. We have heard a lot of electronic music, so through the album we have tried to create an electronic trance feel by using organic sounds from the guitar, drums and so on. It still got pop music structure."

The album features 10 tracks- 'Bijli', 'Gul' and 'Suno' are a few tracks that can be named. The five member band is made up of IP Singh (vocals), Rajarshi Sanyal (guitars), Shardul Mehta (drums), Nikhil Rufus Raj (Bass), and Akshat Taneja (Keyboards). But the band is keen on adding a few more members on board. "We would love to get someone to sing harmony and some one for percussion, as it would add more spice to live shows. We would love to get more musicians on board," said Sanyal.

The album is a collaboration with artistes like Aditi Singh Sharma (Vocal Duet on 'Gulz'), Suhail Yusuf Khan (Saarangi solo on 'Aaina'), Gyan Singh (Tabla on 'Jats'), Subadhra Kamath and Sonam Gaychen Wangdi (Background vocals).

The music video for 'Bijli' will feature on Vh1 and MTV Indies soon, after which another video will be launched. "There will be gap in between the videos, but there will few videos that will be out," added Sanyal. He further stated that he liked the track 'Bilji', as according to him the song is exploring a lot of aspects of music.

As part of the promotion for the track, the Delhi-based band will launch the album with a six-city tour -Delhi (Blue Frog), Mumbai (The Little Door), Mumbai (Blue Frog), Pune (Euriska), Bangalore (Counter Culture), Hyderabad (Hard Rock Cafe) and Kolkata (Someplace Else).

The band has a lot more to offer then just ten tracks, which is why they decided to keep the others for the future which will be part of the third album. "We will try not to call it 'Ek Aur'," laughs Sanyal.

The album was mixed in LA, California and mastered at
