Every pop-rock music lover in this country has swayed to Faridkot’s hits such as ‘Laila’, Haal e Dil’ and ‘Madho’ at one point. And with his latest song ‘Baithe Baithe’, he is resonating with all of us who’re at home. From Mrunal Datt’s acting to the oh-so relatable lyrics, Faridkot’s latest has been playing on loop for us. It shows how we’re coping and learning to live in this suspended reality which is almost an endless loop of never ending chores and zoom calls. It’s a much-needed, refreshing break we’ve been looking for.
Spreading positive vibes all around, ‘Baithe Baithe’ beautifully captures the essence of all our emotions of handling what is the new normal. And even though we can't meet in these times, this song is letting people know that we’re thinking about them. This is a song for everyone locked in by themselves, a song for everyone who is away from loved ones, a song about just taking things one day at a time.
In case you haven’t heard of this amazing musical duo, Raj and IP, they’re a decade-old band who have performed in over 500 shows alongside all the biggest names in the country. Their band, Faridkot, recently composed the title track for movies like “The Expendables 3” and “Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene”, clearly showing that their fans aren’t limited to any geographical boundaries. If that wasn’t enough, their album “Phir Se?” was nominated for the GIMA awards in the Best Rock Album Category. Isn’t that cool!
