Most Underrated Music Bands This Season

It’s crazy how music can connect souls and break all barriers. The value of Bollywood music industry in India is about Rs 1400 crore, as per report by consultancy KPMG.

However with the rise of independent artists and cafes supporting musical gigs, a brewing cult of offbeat music lovers is coming to the foray. Today being the unofficial International Music Day, BW Businessworld brings to you a string of five underrated bands this monsoon season.

  • Cigarettes After Sex - Cigarettes After Sex more of an emotion than a band name, CAS is an offbeat band that won’t sync in with a typical Arijit Singh fan. Soft, numb, soul touching, with the lyrics that will directly sync in with your unresolved emotions. An American ambient pop musical group led by Greg Gonzalez. The music with echoing guitars and softly tapped drums gently supported by washes of ambient synthesiser helps with you deal with your sleep anxiety. 

       Best Track- Nothing’s Gonna hurt you baby

  • Nocturnal Sunshine - Not your typical “band “per say Nocturnal Sunshine is music producer, and DJ   Maya Jane Coles ‘s baby. The tracks are off beat with the kind of odd videos that somehow support each and every word. Tappy beats, and a hypnotic music string is likely to get you obsessed with the tracks and entangle you. The music is creepily captivating, gives you what you want in your first listen but leaves you wanting for more.

      Best Track- Believe ft Chelou

  • Bilderbuch - An Austrian rock band formed in 2005, somehow has escaped the Indian Music lover’s playlist too long. Yes there is a language barrier, but the peppy guitar, foot tapping drums and slow building up of the music tempo, is definitely worth a listen.  Builderbuch((which means Picture Book in English) proves music has no language.

      Best Track- Spliff

  • Angus and Julius Stone - Angus & Julia Stone are an Australian  brother-sister folk and inde pop group started off in 2006. The brother sister duo entail you into a hypnotic trans, with their heart touching lyrics. After a long day at work come home to a dim lit bedroom, soft bass speakers , and a dose of the lyrical gaffe to set yourself for the perfect night trip.

       Best Track- Big Jet Plane

  • Hang Massive - A totally new concept for Indian music lover, hang massive has a unique hang based style of music. The sound of this magical instrument is central to the theme of the group. Hang Massive are a breakthrough act in the expanding world of hang based musicians. With almost 20 million views on YouTube, an amazing new live album and lots of exciting new projects on the go, Hang Massive had their first successful gig in India at Antisocial New Delhi, which received great appreciation from Delhiites. It sure has a way to go with the mellow hang drum and a soberly high trip on the music for a cult of offbeat music lovers in India.
