Kukubh’s “Pac- Man” is an irony inspired by the famous game with huge hard rock sounds mixed with the in-game sounds.

Tell us about your track

‘Pac-Man’ is my first release of the year. My friend Mayank played the bass on it. Everything else was performed or written by me. It was produced, mixed, and mastered in-house at Crazy Lemur Studios and was released on all platforms on June 20, 2022. This song is inspired by the gameplay of Pac-Man. We’ve made our lives to be quite like this game – running through the maze of life, trying to collect as much ‘gold’ as possible while trying to escape our ghosts. The collection of golden dots means nothing at the end. The game is so much fun. But doing the same thing in real life? Not so much. The song is a mix of hard rock and funk with some quirky guitar and synth sounds.

Tell us your inspiration behind this track

The music is inspired by my hard rock and classic rock influences. The lyrics are inspired by how we go about our lives, almost without any real purpose, at least I have struggled with a lot. So it’s a kind of a recurring theme in my music. ‘Nasamajh’ is kind of similar in that sense. I was just humming this tune one day and it instantly reminded me of the game, and how it felt so similar to the way we are conditioned to accumulate and level up with no end in sight. That tune had to be the intro to the song and I managed to make my guitar sound robotic and glitchy like an old video game sound, the rest of the song just flowed seamlessly.

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

I don’t remember. May be a couple of months from start to being release ready. But I must have worked 12-15 days in total. I keep doing other things in between songs.

What is the meaning behind the lyrics?

I sort of mentioned it when I talked about the song and the inspiration behind it. So, I will just put a part of the chorus here, and it captures the essence. ‘Living a life of a Pac-Man, running around going up and down when you’re not going anywhere’

What brings next after this release?

I am working on my next release ‘One’ and the production work is almost done. It’s similar in a lot of ways and yet not like any of my previous releases and it’s a rather long song. It might surprise a few.
