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
The track, as the name suggests, talk about nature. Yeh Aatishein is a song which talks about our responsibility towards nature to create a balance using it’s resources & preserving it. The track was penned down by this friend of mine called Saras with whom I had also collaborated on my previous single ‘Bhor Taaraa’. Since I can’t write in Hindi, it makes these collaborations really special. Saxophone was played by Anurag Kamble, Bass was done by my friend Harry Mathew, while vocals & guitars were done by yours truly, piano, mix & master was done at Beyond Myth Studios, Dehradun.
Tell us your inspiration behind this track
The inspiration behind the track was one of my experiences of rock bottoms that I’ve faced in life. I had alienated myself completely from society and that’s when nature helped me heal from the inside & I understood its healing power.
How long did it take to record the track album EP ?
I had recorded the entire song in December, 2022 & January, 2023. But then I took a break from everything for a couple of months to focus on my health. Upon reconvening, I heard the song again and was not satisfied with my the vocals. So I hit the studio again & re-recorded the vocals in the first week of December & the song was released on the 30th.
What is the meaning behind the lyrics?
A summary of the lyrics is a realisation of how we as humans are failing to bring a balance between exploiting nature & preserving it. It is because of us that nature is losing its, for lack of a better word, authority on this planet. The bridge talks about how even after being exploited, mother nature herself is living a joyful life, how the rain, the rivers, the birds, the forest, all are living in harmony & joy. The song ends with a message to society conveying that nature is ours and preserving it today will bring about a change tomorrow.
What brings next after this release?
I have been working on my first album for a while now which I plan to release by April or latest by May. It might also contain an element of surprise.
