As the band describes, their very first album ‘Khoj’, is about search for identity, a quest to understand our very own nature. It is in moments of disconnect, that the journey inward begins – Khoj is an intense and passionately crafted musical journey that captures these moments through hard, edgy Hindi rock music.
Here’s how the album cover looks like.
