Ye Ankhen – Rust Rewired

8903244117874

From Patna, arrives a trio of musicians – DjShak, Samrat Singh aka S King, and Roshan Gulrez – known as Rust Rewired. Their effort, “Ye Ankhen”, commences with a wonderful, dreamy set of piano sounds, creating a sonic dreamscape that is engaging until the vocals of hip-hop are introduced. Turning to unconventional chill out material thereafter, “Ye Ankhen” succeeds in its simplicity till the song takes another tangent, introducing a radical change with a heavy metal guitar based interlude towards the song’s finish. That, in reality, is the true highlight, leading to an unprecedented mixture of disparate sounds that makes “Ye Ankhen” a gorgeous, dreamy, unconventional, and unprecedented song amalgamating multiple genres which, apparently, is a Rust Rewired trademark, for which they deserve to be applauded.

Closure – The Tankbund Blues Band

8903244117867

 

From the Toronto-based The Tankbund Blues Band that had its roots in Hyderabad, “Closure” absolutely marks a distinguishing direction for the sounds of rock, one that commences with what sounds like chants which immediately places you in a trance, as the slow starting rocker builds layers to culminate into a crescendo. The guitar lines are melancholic and sad, yet simple but, when the drum arrives to support the vocals and the instrumentation, “Closure” perks up to another level. Enjoyed the distinctive voice too, which blends well with the rhythm section. While simplification and streamlining of the sound appears intentional, “Closure” is yet melodic and immediate. While I could not capture the sound of “blues” that appears as part of the band’s name, “Closure” is definitely a worthy listen for those about to rock.
