Love overcomes all barriers, is demonstrated by Shishir Bhanot’s latest single “Nazrein”. It talks about a love that is concealed in the eyes and yearns to be spoken but can’t find the perfect words to do it.

We did an interview with the artist over a cup of coffee about this latest release, here’s what they had to say!

Tell us about your track

Nazrein by Shishir Bhanot embodies how love transcends all. It talks about a love hidden in the eyes, yearning to be told, but not being able to find the right words to convey it. Much like how the ocean stops at the banks, the tears stop at eyelids, not revealing the true extent of the love.

Tell us your inspiration behind this track

I’m a romantic, in the truest sense. I also feel that love is a very personal feeling, and no one can dictate how one feels about a certain someone. Through this song I wanted to convey that feeling, about the helplessness of being hopelessly in love, the feeling of wanting to tell the person of your dreams how much you love them, but unable to do so. The feeling of not being able to love the person you want to love the most.

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

It took a lot of back and forth. It started off as an acoustic track, before a full blown production, so a better part of the year!

What is the meaning behind the lyrics?

Nazrein starts off by comparing the feeling of love with the vastness of the ocean, and how when the ocean meets the banks, it stops. The same way tears stop at the corner of the eye, not revealing the extent of sadness, the extent of the want in the guy’s eyes. The overwhleming urge to share his feelings, but not doing so.

What brings next after this release?

I’m working on a new track, finalising it in 2022 actually. Ironically also to do with eyes, it is titled “Ashqo Mein”. Watch this space!
