Aswekeepsearching has been turning heads and perking up ears over the country for a while now,spreading a message of positivity and good times in away only they can, while keeping their feet planted firmly on the ground. Hailing from sunny Ahmedabad,Gujarat, the outfit comprises of vocalist/guitarist Uddipan Sarmah, guitarist/keyboardist Shubham Gurung, bassist Bob Alex and drummer Gautam Deb.

Imagine a bard, sweating blood in an isolated roomand pounding a pen against the table in preparation for his next opus. Now imagine your boys next door,perched on a stage as they take their audience on anemotional journey whilst strumming away. Slam thosetwo images together, and that unlikely combination gives you some idea of what to expect from this band.

The wealth of superlatives in the accompanying PR tosingles ‘Aakorxon’ and ‘Tattva’ is both embarrassingand impressive, but a listen to AWKS’s first publicrelease suggests that most of them are at least grounded in fact. Their guitar playing will not revolutionize the instrument, but their style  is comfortable, never redundant or overelaborate, and there is a soothing rhythm to the notes which bring asmile to the face. It’s simple, straightforward, and it works.

Make no mistake about it tough: as we keep searching are having the time of their lives. Hard working and quite plainly loving every single second, the band are now set to shake up charts with a feverishly anticipated debut album, a euphoric wide screen classic of epic-post rock proportions.

When they take the stage they cast the samem on ochrome image that characterizes their music videos and press shots. It’s a stark image and has a startling visual impact. But that’s what the band does best, make an impact. The thing about as we keep searching is they’re an incredible well thought out complete package. From their image, totheir music, to their lyrics, everything slots together with deft precision.They should be on your ‘one to see’ list.
