Baroda based singer-songwriter Rushikesh Nene has been making music for a while now. A quick visit to his SoundCloud page shows releases going 7 years back.
Last month he released a new solo track along with a well produced video available on Youtube called ‘Broken Dreams’. The song is written and composed by Rushikesh Nene himself. The easy-listening, feel good track brings a message for the listeners to let go of their fears and sadness, and believe in the power of manifestation of the good.
The song has an indie-pop-acoustic vibe with a heavy focus on guitar melodies and impeccable finger picking. Basic percussions add to the track beautifully accenting the sonic experience. The bridge introduces a melancholic string melody which circles back to the chorus. Nene’s vocals add another dimension to the track elevating it to the warm feeling it exhibhits.
Rushikesh is a part of a three piece blues band called Duneheart as well. The band formed in 2013, comprises of Srisamarth Inamdar as the drummer, Sankalp Vyas as the bassist and Nene as the lead vocalist and guitarist. After a short haitus from 2016-19, the band is working on new music for their debut EP titled “Stay With Me”. They look to release 5 originals, with blues and rock and roll elements, composed over the years. They plan to drop the album sometime in June.
Cup Of Tea is the third song from their upcoming EP whose release date isn’t announced yet. The song is littered with hints of social dissent tastefully sprinkled through the lyrics and samples used. Sonically, the song brings forth cheeky rock and roll guitar melodies and riffs along with classic blues inspired lyrics. The bass and drums are also perfectly incorporated into the the vibe of the song.
Its a fun listen. We look forward to the EP release for more content from the artists.
