It was the time when Trishna had just graduated and was hunting for a job. While she was at it, it kept hitting her that a typical 9 to 5 job was not her cup of tea. At that time, she was a little apprehensive, because she knew that her parents had invested a lot into the course she studied. She did get a job but then she felt she didn’t belong there. The first at work haunted her for being somebody else but her. She let go of the job and decided to focus solely on music.

There was a time when we were casually jamming, and they came up with some groovy tunes, which they couldn’t categorise solidly into a particular genre. That was when they thought “Why not use individual strengths and create something unique?” So, they met at my place to discuss and see if they were actually going to go ahead with the idea. They concluded that as an integrated unit, they needed to put forth the ideas and give the audience something new.
“Independent music or indie music as we often call it, we feel, has been very debatable in India. Unlike earlier, artists like us now have the option of creating a very strong online presence and database to reach out to listeners worldwide, and with the advent of digitalism, more indie artists and bands are emerging by the day”, say Trishna.
