Tell us about your track

I wrote this song about a year ago when I was going through a tough break up, I picked up the ukulele at 1 am in the night and this song came along, it talks about the promises in a relationship that are broken and the thoughts that come after it. “Kaise the vaadein woh, tere mere, kaisi kasmein thi jo, ab nah rahi” At the time I kept wondering if the break up was my fault and how a long lasting relationship (Vaasta) could end, the lyrics express my emotion and how difficult it was to move on.

Tell us your inspiration behind this track

There was no set inspiration for the track, everything just fell in place the day i wrote it, one thing that people might not know is that I wrote the whole song in one go but I ended up scrapping the second verse as a whole and rewrote it a few days after finishing the song, the electric guitar, ukulele and bass combination was inspired by countless indie songs during post production

How long did it take to record the track album EP ?

It was really quick, I was always ready with the song, my producer Larry Lobo and I spent 6 hours in the studio and it was finished. The mix was done by Somanshu within a week as well.

What is the meaning behind the lyrics?

The lyrics are honest, they express vulnerability and exactly how I felt at the moment I wrote them. I believe honest music always connects with people and that’s what i’ve tried to achieve with this song.

What brings next after this release?

I want to keep releasing music, being in the studio made me realise how fun it is to create something out of nothing, listening to the final track after months of dreaming it is an unparalleled feeling.
