LATEST RELEASE

The song is constructed around a loud overdriven moment of darkness, chaos and anguish. What precedes and follows it however, is beauty, hope, and serenity. Storm tells the story of the dichotomy between these two moods, the nature of our layered complexity and what makes us unique individuals.

PRESS

"Parts guitar-laden spy theme and swanky brass-led swagger, It Was You shows the impressive power and atmosphere Shubh produces in his songwriting, culminating in an excellent second-half where the brass and guitar work combine for a melodically riveting listen."

Shubh Saran - Lauren Desberg

"It’s the kind of sleek, thrilling progressive jazz with plenty of hooks and groove to it....Hmayra is a confident and striking full-length debut for the young guitarist, one that should put him on the radar for fans of proggy modern jazz."

"Saran is a first-rate composer and a tasteful guitarist who makes a very impressive showing on [his debut] album."

"[Hmayra] features rich climaxes as well as intermittent valleys and peaks, with Saran’s solos veering in and out like a pedestrian weaving through a packed sidewalk in Bangalore."

"There's a simple, straightforward goodness to these songs that are a pleasure to hear. His intermingling of his Indian heritage with modern jazz sounds show great skill without insisting upon itself."

Shubh Saran - Lauren Desberg

"[Saran's] exposure to Western music helped him come up with a unique style that is a mix of classical and contemporary Indian music, modern jazz, neo-soul, and rock."
