north Delhi Musicians to Catch Live - Part Deux

A five-piece band that identifies itself most as an alternative rock band {with splashes of blues and soul thrown in}, Jordan Johnson {lead vocals}, Akshay Deokuliar {drummer}, Shobith John {electric guitarist}, Sean and Zoe Tuckey {band bass, piano and vocals} make up NORTH. Their songs are best reserved for introspective days, with lyrics that are both poetic and relatable. We love the way their words strike a chord, akin to a lost memory that comes to your mind, catching you by surprise.

october Delhi Musicians to Catch Live - Part Deux

Although this five-member band has been on the scene since 2007, they’re back after a hiatus, with a three-song EP and plenty of new music to look forward to. To give you a rough idea, they fall under the umbrella of alternative and progressive rock, but they experiment with all sorts of genres and would rather not be labelled. Best enjoyed with a pint of beer in hand, their music balances melodies and riffs for a sound that’ll have you groovin’, without a doubt. Sherry Matthews {vocals}, Suyash {drums}, Akshay Dwivedi {bass}, Rohan Panjiar and Shashvat Pandit {guitars} make up October.
