By Wild City
As we celebrate the best in alternative alongside fellow Delhi curators Little Black Book, one artist that we’d like to shine some light on is Curtain Blue, the solo project of Abhishek Bhatia – vocalist of New Delhi based band, The Circus.
Since the launch of his project in late 2013, he’s been consistently fusing haunting vocal melodies with downtempo and bass sensibilities, aiming to create a textural blend, which can uniquely be called his own. And within these formative months, drawing inspiration from artists such as Radiohead, Moderat and Jon Hopkins, he’s slowly carved a niche all for himself.
“I really liked this guy called Curtain Blue, who’s somewhere between Apparat and Jon Hopkins, a bit sound track-y, melancholic but really detailed production.” Robot Koch, Berlin/Los Angeles at Magnetic Fields Festival.
Always keeping an eye on artists cropping up from various pockets of the country, he’s one we here at Wild City have got a close eye on. Already signed to our booking agency; Vital Agency, we’d recommend you prepare to witness the perfect example of how the underground melds with the masses.
