With each of the tracks – six over two EPs, The Yellow Diary, an Indian alt-rock band exclusively signed to Sony Music has showed off a smooth progression in sound and scale.
It’s only been eight months since the release of the debut EP, Marz and already, the sophomore effort, the three-track Izafa releases today. This time around, all three tracks of Izafa will have accompanying music videos, all directed by Vishal Handa, each releasing within days of each other.
“Izafa (Advancement in Urdu), is exactly what this EP represents for the band in terms of taking the next step in our musical journey,” says the Band.
The first track and video that released today is a mellifluous rendition of the legendary Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan saab’s Tera Jeya Hor Disda that breaks free of any preconceptions/misgivings you might have toward the re-creation of the classic. This one might even become a modern classic!
Dheere Se encapsulates the afterglow of an intimate moment and washes over you in mind-altering waves. While Buniyaad elaborates on the fact that moments and things do not last forever and that it’s important to be rooted to reality but just as important to dream and aspire.
The soundscape, this time is more large-room, anthemic and has a sing-along quality that will have you crooning to the lyrics as soon you hear them.
Profound as always, the words speak out to you. What we’d like to tell you is this. If you haven’t heard them yet, you’re missing out.
