about

We (read: Abhishek, Kshitij and Vaibhav) were always a rock band that enjoyed playing a lot of other things. After all, our world is rich with a lot of music, and its always nice to go out there and discover something that we are unfamiliar with. That's how our rock band discovered Indian semi-classical music (read: Anumeha Bhasker) (well, we are from India, so it wasn't a surprise!)

"Paper Smiles" was our first experiment that fused alternative rock music with classical vocals and percussion. We made this song a few years back, and we never imagined that an album fully-loaded with such mergers was on its way! Perhaps the inspiration that came with one song remained with us as we studied abroad, and being 'A Long Way From Home' was just another reason to explore our musical roots.

"November burst" is a love song. It is about allowing yourself to fall in love with something that is beautiful, but unknown.

"Ud Le" is about seizing the opportunity you are given, to create something that is truly spectacular and memorable. A lot of this song was inspired from our memories of organising and performing at PECFEST.

"Song For A Sunny Day" is for those who has fallen in and out of love, come close and then found themselves pushed further apart.

Now we have decided to take you along our journey through the years, one song at a time. The first three songs are now available for download, and more are on their way!

Track Name: November Burst
Kaun yaha aaya tha, kaun diya jala gya.
Soone mere aangan mei kirane yu phela gya

Dil ki dehleez paar kar
Baahon ke darwaze khol kar
Mishri ka tukda ghol kar
Mujkho yu pighla gya

Kaun yaha aaya tha, kaun sama mehka gya.
Dil ke daaman ko thame, mera woh.mera ho gya.

English Translation

Who was it that came my way?
Who was it that made the darkness fade away?
dispelling the loneliness in my life with light and love

He took his place in my heart
and his memories are there to this day
My life was filled with immeasurable sweetness
and a joy that still melts my heart away

Who was it that came my way?
Made the seasons nicer, and better each day
My heart became his, and he became mine forever

He took his place in my heart
and his memories are there to this day
My life was filled with immeasurable sweetness
and a joy that still melts my heart away
Track Name: Ud Le
Ud le, Aise mauke roz aate nahi
Ud le, Bin Khoye hum kuch paate nahi
Ud le, Ud le

Ud le, Aasmaano mein ud le
Choole, Chaand Taaron ko choo le
Hansle, Khul ke aaj tu hansle

Kyuki,
Uncha Ye Aasmaan
Bhoole Saara Jahan
Aaj hum tum yahan
Ashaon bhara sama

Uncha Ye Aasmaan
Bhoole Saara Jahan
Aaj hum tum yahan
Ashaon bhara sama

Kal ho na ho sath
Par aaj hai yeh raat
Toh Chal mere sath mere yara

Ek hi ye manzil
Hai Armaan-e-dil
To Chal mere sath mere yara

Kya Aayega ye pal?
Aisa kya hoga kal?
Chal mere sath mere yara

Raatein Ye Haseen hain
Yaadein Rehti Hain
Baatein Kehti Hain

Oh Yara,
Uncha Ye Aasmaan
Bhoole Saara Jahan
Aaj hum tum yahan
Ashaon bhara sama
Track Name: Song For A Sunny Day
Lyrics (by Nandita Bhasker and Vaibhav Nangia) :

Aatey agar tum yahan par, mere, sune saaz saj jaate
Tanhayi mein jo, sur thamey hain, sari fizaa mehkaate
Ataey agar tum yahan par, mere, sune saaz saj jaate

Little drops of sunshine in my way,
come hurtling down from above, each day
Up above, from the misty sky
These drops remind me that I’m still alive

In a musical bag, so fine
In a musical bag, all mine
Such an ironic sunny day

Mehki-mehki saason se bhara, yeh sama hai
Jaanti hain yeh wadiyan, tu yahin kahin hai
Tu yahin kahin hai

Dream another dream
As the night passes you by
Under the sun, you will fight
Fight, just to keep them alive
Little flecks of gold floating around
Flying faster than the speed of sound
