Delhi-based singer/songwriter Shantanu Pandit will be releasing his first EP titled ‘Skunk In The Cellar’ on 18th June 2014. The EP is a collection of five love songs and is a result of three years of songwriting. Shantanu describes his sound as ’quiet, organic, folk music.’ and says, ”It was only natural for me to find myself making folk music, since the only things really working for me are the words that I write, and the way they sound when they’re sung.”
Known for his soulful voice, poetic lyrics and captivating performances, Shantanu has made a distinct presence in the independent music scene over the last few years and has performed on several stages such as The NH7 Weekender, THINK! Conference, Live From The Console (LFTC), Ragasthan, Windsong and The Great Indian Octoberfest.
When asked about the apparent delay in the release of his debut EP, Shantanu explains “ The delay in this release is probably because of my uncanny ability to shoot down every song I write after a couple of months of playing them. However, for the first time since the start, I find myself in a position where I have five songs that I truly believe are worthy of being released.”
Skunk In The Cellar will be available 18th June 2014 onwards on ITunes, OK Listen and other digital platforms. For more details visit www.shantanupandit.com .
To celebrate the release, a free download of ‘ Wickets For Walls,’ a single from the upcoming EP, has been made available on www.soundcloud.com/shantanupandit
