Artiste: Nadisha Thomas
Song: Right as Rain
Right as Rain is about faith, hope, love, truth, the mistakes we make and everything in between. We live in a world where we have a facade that covers up our true feelings and thoughts. We never really portray what’s happening on the inside. Sometimes we even block out our feelings so that we don’t have to deal with it. More often than not, we don’t realise that whatever mistakes we make, however big or small, everything will work out in the end. There will always be light at the end of a dark tunnel.
Artiste: Roshan George Thomas Trio
Song: You Could Have Fooled Anyone
The 6th single by the Roshan George Thomas Trio is a confessional about enduring toxicity in a relationship, as the alternative (of being without) seemed numbing, and one’s own questioning of unconditional fondness. It is a song from a time ago, that seems relevant now in this era of isolation and wistful longing.
A deranged journey taken by a wanderer, chasing lost love and bearing repeated visions of that person in distinct dimensions. An outcry chorus, haunting guitars, gloomy synths along with shakers chauffeured with an unbroken bass line portrays movement and sets the scene to Midnight.
Artiste: Shakthisree Gopalan
Song: Birds and The Bees
This song is the fruit of love of gifted musician Salwin Alfred. He has created something truly beautiful and magical. The music and lyrics reflect his honesty in expressing his love and the idea that love really is without boundaries.
Artiste: Sanjeev Thomas
Song: Not a Love Song (from the album Future)
The song presents a space clouded by conditioning yet discovering new truths towards an uncertain future. The song features ‘Native Indian,’ a spoken word artiste from Salem, Tamil Nadu, who I befriended while asking for collaborators on this track through social media. With Lo-fi chill hop vibes, the album promises a fresh sound and a reflection of these times.
