Antariksh – Tum Lyrics

Antariksh - Tum Lyrics

Tum is a song which can mean different things to different people. For some it may be a love ballad, for some – a song about almighty – it actually is a song about self-realization. A realization of the very fact that the all the answers that one may seek, lie within.¬†Tum was released on August 23, 2013 a couple of weeks before the release of their debut labum,¬†Khoj. The song also features an absolutely incredible face melting guitar solo by one of India’s finest guitar players and master of carnatic solos, Baiju Dharmajan. If you haven’t yet heard the song, you’ve got to check it out: Antariksh – Tum…

AAP effect and Tour Diaries: A surprisingly pleasant incident on our way to a show at IIM Rohtak

Let us tell you about a really funny and a surprisingly pleasant incident that happened a few days ago. Comfortably seated in a cab, on a pleasant winter afternoon, were headed to¬†IIM Rohtak¬†to play at gig their Pro Night event on January 19th. Somewhere near Bahadurgarh, a few cops dressed in Khakhis signalled our driver to stop the cab. We were a little surprised as the driver had committed no offense. We were not speeding, we had our seat belts – nothing was out of place. We asked the driver, “kya hua bhaiyya” and he was like “kuch nahi sir, 100-50 rupaye lene hain inko”. No surprises, the cops started…

Why Hindi Rock? The Nation Wants To Know :P

Antariksh - Khoj

We’ve been asked this question umpteen number of times by various friends and people who’ve heard our music (thankfully not by Arnab Goswami :P), attended our gigs, and those who’ve been following our music since our early years. Each time this question pops up, it takes us back a few years to the time when we¬†were belting out progressive, heavy western rock/metal tunes with our previous bands – Prestorika,¬†Feedback, Under Siege, and Decibel. The kind of bands we’d cover would include Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Skid Row, Van Halen and the likes.

Antariksh’s debut album, Khoj’s cover artwork explained!

Hindi Rock Song, Aisa Hi Hota Hai - Free Download

How important is an album cover? This was the first question we asked ourselves before we started thinking of ideas for our album cover. The obvious answer was “very”. Although it’s always recommended to not judge a book by its cover, we humans, do have a natural tendency to do so. Especially, when we do not have enough information/opinion on something, we do tend make our choices on the basis of what meets the eye. All of us in the band are firm believers of the fact that there has to be some concept, some logic, or some meaning behind every piece of music we create, lyrics we write, or…
