Bulandi – Kalkii

8903244118819

Chandigarh-based Kalkii, although portraying their music as sufi folk, actually owe their greatest debt to classic rock. With its intricately arranged guitar textures and expansive harmonic vocabulary, “Bulandi” recalls those touchstones that might not have been immediately apparent, since – aside from Sameer Dhiman’s leads — most traces of obvious influences have been virtually stripped from the band’s sound. Though they rock hard, Kalkii tackles weighty topics – fearlessness, self-sufficiency, determination, passion – with an earnest zeal. Similarly, composer-vocalist-rhythmic guitarist Suneet Rawat’s lyrics often make their greatest impact through the passionate commitment of his delivery rather than only in meaning. His voice has a highly distinctive timbre that perfectly fits the song’s warm, rich sound, and that is part of the band’s appeal. Kalkii is in tightly focused form here, resulting in “Bulandi” having the potential of becoming a flawlessly crafted melodic masterpiece.
