The roots of Delhi-based Tantra are five like-minded neighbourhood friends, consisting of Goodwin [vocals], Anurag [keyboards], Gaurav [drums], Anshul [bass], and Jickson George [guitars], who has also composed “Saaya”. In what initially appears as a weird mishmash of power metal and stoner rock combined with eclectic sounds, “Saaya” works well following several listenings and, eventually, becomes an addiction. Jickson’s memorable riffs and his talent for playing guitar, Anurag’s creativity in providing sounds of multiple instruments through keyboards and, paradoxically, the perfectly disjointed drumming by Gaurav really drive the band’s performance on “Saaya” above most Indian rock standards.
