3 – Sifar

3-aa

From a project initiated by songwriter/producer Amit Yadav, Sifar is a band that commenced musical operations in 2008, going live from 2010 onward with a line-up consisting of Anshul Bansal [Amit’s partner in musical crime], Deepak Singh, and Yapang Lemtur, along with Nikhil Auluck, who becomes part of the band while performing live. In honing their craft of metal, Sifar reached a crescendo of sorts with “Roko Na Mujhe”, which got the band nominated in the “Best Rock Song” category at the annual ArtistAloud Awards.

On ‘3’, simplification and streamlining are the keywords for their sound. While the assessment makes sense from a musical standpoint, it also presents an opportunity to commercialize their music, and Sifar accomplishes both goals. The best songs are more melodic and immediate, from the opening of the crushing, manic grooves of “Kambakht” to the closing, crisp, remix production by Naren on “Dil Ki Sada”, which adds accessibility to ’3’ and to Sifar’s marvellous metallic sounds. Seeing Sifar live is certainly on my bucket list!
