IndiEarth at The Park will present two bands — indie pop act The Colour Compound from Mumbai, and electronica act Nuphlo from the United Kingdom. Following its philosophy of providing a stage for a vibrant live independent music scene in Chennai, the monthly gig series will take place on August 1, Saturday.
The Colour Compound from Mumbai is a four-piece act with a sound that’s jarringly simple while simultaneously rich in vocal harmonies and guitar lines. It comprises Rohan Mazumdar and Bradley Tellis on guitar and vocals, Adil Kurwa on bass and Aditya Ashok on drums. Fresh from the release of their debut album From Where We Stand this summer, the band has spent a considerable time experimenting with different inspirations.
The group is now honed in on a sound that is uniquely theirs. You can catch them live on the Lobby Stage at 9pm. UK based Indian electronic producer Nuphlo presents his multicultural influences on one electronic space. This eclectic artiste started his DJ career at a local pirate radio station in Leeds, England, and also co-founded a record label called Hundred Colours Music dedicated to producing and releasing nu skool Eastern electronic music.
According to Bobby Friction of BBC Radio 1, “Nuphlo’s palette is as wide as his brain is skewed and after watching his career for the best part of ten years I’m convinced he leans towards the box marked ‘genius’.” He will be playing at the Leather Bar 10:30pm onwards.
