Homegrown’s Fresh Picks From Music That Released Last Week: Hanumankind, Frizzell D’Souza & More

Homegrown loves bringing to you emerging artists and those who have established a niche in alternate genres hidden from the mainstream. Keeping things super fresh, we will be curating a weekly list of numbers we could not get enough of through the week and that we know will earworm themselves to your heart as well.

Scroll down for your weekly dose of latest releases.

Drum Ani Bass 1403’

Bass player Nathan Thomas and drummer Dhir Mody’s debut full-length album is gritty, experimental, and fresh. The collaborative album has come out of a series of live performances and studio jams and packs all the energy of a live electronic set with jazz, glitch, DnB, and jungle influences. With many other artists collaborating with them on this album, it is a sure one to get excited about.

Check out the release here.

Frizzell D’Souza ‘Drown Away’

Back with another single is singer-songwriter Frizzell D’Souza who released her debut single earlier this year. With her bluesy vocals and soothing sound, the single is sure to get you drowning away into a world of nostalgia. The lyric music video is minimal, clean and pastel (almost reminiscent of Prateek Kuhad’s with you/for you music aesthetic) which goes well with the sense of nostalgia and mood the song intends to create.

Hanumankind x Parimal Shais ‘Beer and Biryani’

Hanumankind and Parimal Shais’s collaborations have usually been ways for them to assert their identity as South Indian, multillingual individuals. Their latest collaboration that takes a fun and quirky take on Biryani and beers is no different and is all about that ‘Brown Boy Drip’. At the core of it, however, it’s an ode to embracing their identity and staying true to their roots. A banger that is not only fun to listen and watch, this is one to leave you thinking about more.

KR$NA Ft. Rashmeet Kaur ‘Living Legend’

New Delhi-based rapper KR$NA’s (formerly played under the moniker ‘Prozpekt’ and considered India’s first professional rapper) latest single from his upcoming album ‘Still Here’ is a true testament to his freestyle rap. With the vocals from Rashmeet Kaur adding a nice feel to the music, it is an addictive listen that will be stuck in your head for quite a while.

Manas Jha ‘Curtains’

Indie rock artist Manas Jha’s latest single is more personal and intimate in nature, and the intimacy does show in his voice. Autobiographical in nature, the song delves into an introverted love story. While releasing the song, on his social media post, he had talked about his story of meeting his wife 9 ago. The same honesty and vulnerability shows in the lyricism of the single.

Nikhil Pose ‘Flowers and Rainbows’

Mumbai-based singer-songwriter Nikhil Pose’s debut album introduces him to the indie music scene as a unique voice that isn’t all that common. His melancholic pop album has a poignant lyricism and sounds a lot like musician Michael David Rosenberg of Passenger fame. It makes for an easy listen and is perfect for the winter blues or for when you want to feel all the emotions while all alone in your room. Give Me Love from the album is my personal favourite.

Pranav Bhasin ‘Great But Not For Me’

Upcoming musician Pranav Bhasin’s six-track EP released this week and his second music release this year is a good example of his experimental sound that is edgy, scratchy, and new. With Florida-based musician Rohini Maiti lending vocals to two tracks on the EP, it makes for an interesting listen. The scratchy sound lending a lo-fi feel on the song Pyaar was perhaps my favourite on the EP.

Vinay Kaushal ft Shakthisree Gopalan ‘Is It Sunny?’

Composer and guitarist Vinay Kaushal’s latest collaboration with vocalist Shakthisree Gopalan is a contemporary pop and jazz single about love. The sultry vocals adding to the breezy tunes create a captivating mood that will have you hooked on. The guitar solo in the middle of the song is an interesting addition.
