|Antariksh, a New Delhi-based Hindi Rock act is the first of its kind. Consisting of band members with backgrounds ranging from IIT to DCE to NSIT, McKinsey to CEB to Sapient, who have previously played for bands such Prestorika, Decibel, and Under Siege, the band brings together the perspectives from both corporate as well as creative spheres of life into their music.
Standing at the crossroad of some tasty melodies and spicy grooves, Antariksh creates a very fresh, and progressive sound borrowing nuances from Rock, Pop, Reggae, Carnatic, and Funk music presented in a cohesive and powerful manner. The band has dared to bring the progressive rock style to mainstream Hindi music while still retaining the essence and authenticity of the style and not giving in to the pressure to make overtly commercial sell-out music.
Their first single, ‘Dheere Dheere’ released in January 2013 was an instant hit which propelled the band further to record their first full-length concept album titled ‘Khoj’.
Antariksh has now released a brand new song of their debut album "Khoj". The song "Aashayein" is about living in the moment, living for the hopes and dreams that we have right now, as no-one knows what the future holds and what tomorrow will bring. All we know is that we are here, we are now and in this moment, we are complete.
"Khoj" was released this September and has been seeing great traction on iTunes. The album was a product of 8 months of blood sweat and tears - and focuses on the idea of understanding ourselves better. Each song focuses on different aspects of life that motivate, scare or awe us - and is put together in the characteristic edgy rock style that we love.
