Antariksh – Dil Se Rock Version Live at Music Mojo Season 4, Kappa TV

Varun Rajput - Founder and Guitar Player of Hindi Rock Band Antariksh Live on Music Mojo Kappa TV Season 4

Hey all you awesome folks! How’s it going? Hope you’re keeping your cool in the sultry summer, that’s still only warming up. Each year around this time I start to question how are we gonna get through the sweltering summer months? And each year, the answer that comes through very naturally is – ‘by staying indoors and writing a new album’.  😀 Other than the last live album we did on Season 4 of Music Mojo on Kappa TV in November 2015, we haven’t released a lot of new material. It’s not that we haven’t been writing new music – we actually have written material worth 2 albums, some of it complete, some of it half way there…

Antariksh - Dheere Dheere

Hi guys! Hope it’s going great. It’s been going absolutely crazy for us, and we’ve had a truly amazing time playing so many gigs and concerts across the country over the last 10 months. Finally, after a long time on road, we are back to composing and writing new material for our 2nd album and it’s already getting exciting. However, before we do that let’s re-visit some of the songs from the first album which we believe changed our lives, entirely. Some of you who’ve known us right from the start might remember this very first song and video release back in January 2013 – the song that literally kick-started the band,…

Dil Chahta Hai Rock Version Live at IIM Rohtak

2014, so far has certainly been a fantastic year for us. Of all the gigs we played in January, the ones at TEDx SGGSCC, IIM Rohtak, and IIIT Delhi have been the most amazing ones. And one song that undoubtedly makes the audience go crazy at every concert is our version of Dil Chahta Hai (Title Track). A groovy song with a really wide chorus, nice chords, groovy bass lines, and an edgy, bluesy solo, if we were to define the genre, ‘Hindi Rock’ in one song, Dil Chahta Hai would be that song. Here’s a live video of our version of Dil Chahta Hai from one of our gigs…

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…

Saari Raat Noori Cover by Antariksh at Blue Frog

Antariksh Live at Blue Frog

Noori’s coke studio version of Saari Raat undoubtedly has to be our favourite song from Season 2 of Coke Studio, Pakistan. When we formed the band last year and thought of picking up a song to cover, Saari Raat was indeed our very first choice. It’s a song that suits Antariksh’s edgy, progressive Hindi Rock style very well. We’ve been covering Saari Raat for almost a year now, and every single time it gets everyone grooving and an absolutely crazy response from the audience. Here’s a video of us playing our rendition of Saari Raat at our album launch gig at Blue Frog, Delhi. Saari Raat (Noori Cover) Live at…

Picture6

“The super band of sorts releases musical roller coaster, featuring music prodigies including Baiju Dharmajan.” Those are some really flattering opening lines for an album review – if you’re a band member who has worked really hard over years to produce an album, you’d be reading such a review with a wide smile on your face. Post the release of our album, ‘Khoj’ we sent out a few copies to some music magazines, senior musicians and other media people and Popsplat, happened to be the first one to review it, rating it 4 on 5. Here’s where you can read the review: http://popsplat.in/2013/10/24/music-review-khoj-antariksh/ It’s so interesting that every person who hears…

Antariksh’s second single, ‘Tum’ featuring Baiju Dharmajan crosses 100 downloads on SoundCloud

Hindi Rock Song, Aisa Hi Hota Hai - Free Download

There’s no better feeling for a band than to know that their music is being appreciated and enjoyed by the people. Our elation is multiple folds for we believe we’re successfully managing to popularize a completely new genre of music, Progressive Hindi Rock. We are one of the first progressive Hindi rock band in India – by that statement, what we essentially mean is that we’re one of the first bands who has dared to bring western prog-rock music (the likes of Rush, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation) to Hindi songs. All of us in the band have been huge fans and have played progressive rock music with various…
