Spud in the Box and Parvaaz

Genre/Language Indie Rock

Spud In The Box
With considerable acclaim even before their first EP titled, ‘Attention, Please!’ in 2013, the six-piece outfit went swiftly from being a college sensation to the next big thing on the Indian independent rock circuit. Having honed their sound by playing gigs across the country at club venues as well as major music festivals like NH7 Weekender and Ragasthan they’ve created a name for themselves.

The music they make is a strange brew of a modern alternative rock sound that doesn’t betray it’s various genre influences but still sounds fresh, new and whole.
The band’s live performances are power packed and hard hitting; complete with dual harmonies, big choruses, massive guitar sounds and a super-tight rhythm section that take their audiences on a sonic journey. After spending late 2014 recording at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai and most of 2015 working on their debut album titled, ‘Lead Feet Paper Shoes’, released in 2016.

Parvaaz is a contemporary Indian music band whose four members have assimilated several international progressive/psychedelic rock influences but their own expression has a rootedness that makes their sound unique. They sing mostly in Kashmiri and Urdu and their own line-up reflects the diversity they come from. Khalid Ahamed (vocals), Mir Kashif Iqbal (guitars), Sachin Banandur (drums) and Fidel Dsouza (bass) constitute the Bangalore- based rock group.

The band has so far released an EP titled “Behosh” in 2012 and the full length critically acclaimed album titled “Baran” in 2014. The band also released a live DVD titled “Transitions” in 2016 and are currently working on their second LP.
