Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], April 11: Thumping of drums, reverberating guitar strings and a keyboard to mesmerize- yes, rock music truly rocks! But the real magic happens when rock meets classic, and Western intermingles with Indian. That’s a fusion for the ages! Imagine yourself swaying on the beats of a drum combined with Indian Classical melodies- and a band that can give you this must be checked out.
The band was formerly known as the Motor Wade, but on realizing that there are many Indian Classical tones to their music, the group from Bengaluru have now changed their name to match the music they play. And the fans love it! In fact, they did a survey among their listeners to decide on the name that matches best with the music and what the fans relate to. Thus, The Himalayan Sky- is now their official name across platforms like Spotify, iTunes and YouTube.
The band members themselves are very excited about the new name also. Rakesh, the vocalist of the band, said, “According to a small survey among our fanbase, Himalayan was a keyword that came out strongly, and we went with it.” Their guitarist Santosh added, “We have been playing all kinds of music, but there is an Indian vibe to our music. That’s the main reason we changed our name.”
Along with the name change, the band also announced its next single, “Rakt Vinaash Kali”. The song is a special one that speaks about the mistakes we have made as humans. From growing crime to global warming and other topics, the song is an ode to Maa Kali. Their guitarist Bhavneet tells about the song “The song is a prayer to Maa Kali where we ask her to take an Avatar and destroy the universe filled with our mistakes.” The song showcases the reality of today, where we have come as the human race and are praying for redemption.
