Urr Jaoon – Strings

8903245268599

In saving the best content for the last arrives a song from a band that is single-handedly responsible for the resurgence of Coke Studio, Strings. “Urr Jaoon” is the second song from their album named ‘30’ and opens with a soft, lilting piano and expectedly moves into guitar mellowness featuring lyricist-singer Bilal Maqsood’s mellifluous vocals combined with the quintessential Strings pop-rock sound. There is no denying that the lyrics of “Urr Jaoon” is personal and emotional for String as it sheds light on issues that plague societies, a message that could not be conveyed better than through their musical excellence.

Amateur Love – Vipul Kapoor featuring Kanika Malhotra

Amateur Love

In continuing with the theme of dance sounds, from the Indian capital arrive the talents of Vipul Kapoor and Kanika Malhotra who combine on the sounds of EDM with a blend of Hindi and English on “Amateur Love”. While the lyrics of Dhruv Yogi and Vipul can best be described by part of the song name itself, amateur, it really is the vocals of Kanika that starts the song off on a crescendo but, as soon as her vocals exit, so does the song despite Vipul Kapoor’s best efforts which fall into a loop of keyboard monotony.

Bulleya – DJ Shaan featuring Jasbir Jassi

Bulleya

Unity appears to be the flavor of the fortnight as DJ Shaan, in conjunction with Punjab da Munda Jasbir Singh Bains, better known as Jasbir Jassi, combine to provide a social message through their single, “Bulleya”, which speaks of [quote] “we are all one” [unquote]. A timely message too when you consider the number of messages of disharmony being spread across various channels. Nevertheless “Bulleya”, which has obvious influences of drum and bass, clearly caters to the dance sounds currently being favored by the youth and is both listenable and danceable and, naturally for fans of that genre, has a lot of fun to boot.
