About the project
They are a relatively new band in the Independent music scene and started their journey as a band in 2015 and since then they have been quite active in the performance circuit. They have been writing a lot of music together in this short period of time and been performing them live. ‘Before the Plunge’ is an attempt to compile 5 of their most loved compositions into an E.P and reach to people who have been asking them ‘Where can we find your music?’. The E.P consists of 5 tracks: – Close to my heart: A Pop-rock love ballad – Bombay– A bluesy track about a girl who reminds you of Good o’l, Bombay. This track is written by Gaurav Parab (the author of Rustom and The last storyteller of Almora ) – Let the phase – A pop-rock song about moving ahead – No fear only Love – A reggae country song about ‘Who knows what’s ahead in future, Live the present with love’ – I can’t have enough of you – Another song about madly being in love with a person.
About the Team:
Their Band consists of Kaushik, who is a vocalist and a producer with experience of more than 15 years in live performance, Rahul who is the bassist and a co-writer in the band been playing the bass for the last 7 years or so, Deepanjan our lead guitarist who has been playing for the last 10 years and Pruthvi a seasoned drummer who has been in the live scene for the most of his adulthood.
Most of them are full-time musicians and so to pump in all the money they earn from shows into the E.P wasn’t really a feasible thing to do. That’s where they thought of crowdfunding in Wishberry not just as a way to fund their project but also a way to reach to as many people as possible and make them aware of what they are doing.
