Juman The Band – Breath of freshness in Indie Rock

Juman The Band is an indie soft rock duo composed of two brothers – Sagar and Sahil Chopra. An entrepreneur and a sound engineer respectively, the both of them claim to have a strong soul for music. They look to make simple yet meaningful music to connect with their listeners. Sagar and Sahil pursue music as a passion parallel to their businesses and admittedly dedicate their music as a tribute to their late mother.

With Sagar taking the lead on writing and melodies and Sahil with his music arrangement and production skills, Juman has already gained quite a following on their videos on youtube, and a strong fanbase. Both of them, with their vocal prowess have been able to delight their audience with emotional and heart tugging music that undoubtedly leaves them wanting more.

They aim to fuse indie rock with strong Indian roots and melodies to bring a new dimension for the listeners of Juman. They also look forward to more releases in the coming year.

Their debut release ‘Jee Le’  released last year in June has already managed to garner over 750k views on Youtube. This track is one full of positivity and speaks about listening to one’s heart. A lyrically sound track, Sagar and Sahil sing about forgetting the pain of the past and looking towards a brighter future.

The easy listening track is built over beautiful vocal harmonies and melodies. The duo successfully incorporates traditional Indian sounds and folk elements in their music, keeping an authentic touch and also aligning in line with what they wish to achieve with their sound.  The track is also accompanied with an endearing music video shot in snow-clad mountains.

Another track by the duo – Maa – is an ode to their late mother. It was released in December last year and also accompanied by a black-and-white music video featuring the artists. It is an acoustic track that tugs at the heartstrings of the listeners with its heartfelt lyrics.

Composed and produced by the brothers, this sentimental track conveys their emotions perfectly. Vocally, it features alternating verses by the brothers. The track starts with a melancholic piano melody which builds continuously through as it progresses. The bridge of the song features a sort of dramatic crescendo and a change.

In our opinion, Juman the band has a lot of potential to grow and deliver a fresher and newer sonic in the soundscape in the indie rock scene.

With each passing second one grows and learns. One matures. Once you fall down on your knees, burnt and broken, you choose - either you keep low and go out, or you rise. And I promise all of you, I shall rise each and every time, over and over again.
