...and step two!
You remember them for Laila and the Channel V Launchpad and then well frankly you would not have heard too much about them except a few concerts here and there. But then these guys are all set to change that!
The band is about to launch their next studio album Phir Se. Armed with their signature hooklines and brand of ‘confused pop’, these guys are raring to go with a six-city tour that includes Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune and of course - Delhi.
Phir se is an Electronic album produced through Rock N Roll sounds with as the band members say, ‘nostalgic ideas of the future’. With this album, Faridkot for the first time features five guest artists namely, 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 album was mixed in LA, California and mastered at the coveted Mastering Palace in New York, USA.
The album features ten tracks that sway between the many emotions: From introspection in Aaina, realisation of the energy source that makes us who we are in- Bijli, to love for the natural and cosmic beauty around us captured in Gul and Suno, Phir Se encapsulates many shades of wonder.
The basic idea behind the second album is to evoke a variable take on trance - in musicality. Faridkot seeks to create a sort of repeating and evolving musical trance with their songs, similar to electronic music.
Except that the album is made of organic elements such as vocal harmonies, guitars and drums. ‘All of these elements and ideas were combined to make songs with inherent pop structures which we love. We love pop-music because it doesn’t reflect a type of music or a particular sound. It reflects the timeline of the society we live in. Everything is verse/chorus/bridge like all pop-music, except we wanted to make it a little interesting this time around’, says IP Singh, vocalist Faridkot.
