Evolving as better musicians
One of the first few rock bands to have emerged in the country, ‘Indus Creed’ managed to create magic yet again and the music-lovers were left asking for more at their recent performance at Landmark in the City.
The band performed a couple of numbers from their new album ‘Evolve’. Uday Benegal, the lead singer, kept the audience in splits as he cracked his string of one-liners. “Before I begin the show, I would like to thank all those who turned up on this queer day. I can see that many have come to hear us despite the bandh,” he said.
The band started the show with a song called ‘Fireflies’ from ‘Evolve’ which had a nostalgic element to it. The melodious strumming by Uday and Mahesh and the strong use of bass guitar by Jayesh coupled with the drums by Jairam and Zukin on the keyboard made the song an instant hit with the crowd.
“The video of this song will be out soon and we are wearing some very interesting clothes in the music video as the director thought we don’t dress well,” joked Uday.
The second number ‘Come Around’ was an old one.
“‘Indus Creed’ was one of my favourite bands when I was in college and I have attended many of their shows in Delhi and other places. It’s great that they are coming up with another album. The lyrics are great and you can easily relate to them,” said Angad Arora, who had come for the show.
‘Take It Harder’ was another song from ‘Evolve’. The audience was left asking for more and the band ended the performance with one of their most popular songs, ‘Dirty’. “I hope we get a good response for our new album from Bangalore.
We will be back in the City in the end of June on a rock tour and perform some more of our old and new songs,” Uday signed off.
