'Atma Bomb', our first full length studio album was written and recorded between 2014 - 2020. Most of the material is from a lot of writing and composing sessions Ravishankar started in 2012, so yes, its been a long album in the making ! The attempt was and always remains to write honest, joyful and meaningful music which we enjoy performing as musicians with all our diverse influences and backgrounds.
'Atma Bomb' is a multi - genre journey through the various stages of life, ranging from topics as diverse as the universe and existentialism to the innocence and simplicity of childhood. It is an attempt to sonically capture life's myriad experiences through music !
