Gouri and Aksha – “Hold on Tight”

On the back of releasing their debut four-track EP Sum of the Parts earlier this year, Mumbai-based singer-songwriter duo Gouri and Aksha are now back with a new single – the glitzy “Hold on Tight.” 

The track juxtaposes a melodic piano vamp, horn parts and snazzy grooves with the pair’s mellifluous vocal harmonies. Speaking about the song, the artists said, “We’re talking about some hard shit but the vibe of the song is super fun and easy.”

Kashmira – “Cut to the Chase”

After the release of her debut rock single “Break Through” earlier this year, Pune-based singer-songwriter Kashmira Khot – who goes by her first name – recently dropped her sophomore effort, the indie-rock number called “Cut to the Chase.” 

The song brings forth jangly acoustic guitar strumming, an airy groove, an electric guitar hook and Kashmira’s stunning and emotive vocals, and is reminiscent of the energy felt on Canadian singer Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. The artist said in a statement, “It [the song] reflects on a stale, monotonous life which keeps going around in loops, and how someone tires of it. How people keep saying things to you, and how, in such a phase, you disregard people’s words because you’re busy carrying the weight of just waking up.”

Megha Rao – Teething

Kerala-bred artist Megha Rao recently unveiled a four-track, spoken-word EP entitled Teething. The material on the record is set to be part of Rao’s forthcoming book and explores themes of growing up, healing from wounds and reconnecting with one’s lost innocence. The use of acoustic guitar, a string arrangement and delicate piano parts alongside Rao’s impeccable poetic delivery makes the EP worth a listen.
