Furious. Quirky. Angsty. Bouncy. Funky. Groovy. Eclectic. Vicious. Happy. Mellow…

Think of a musical recipe which has a healthy dollop of all these ingredients and you’re thinking of The Circus. A band which has been making waves on the Indian Music Circuit since 2007. Combining the eldritch, beaming wails of Abhishek Bhatia, the twisted unconventional guitar attack of Arsh Sharma, the aural assault which is the bass work of Abhinav Chaudhary and the tireless groove machine of Anshul Lall. The Circus put together some of the most refreshing and original music to emerge out of the Indian subcontinent in years. Live; they are the essence of what rock and roll is all about. They bring the fun and decadence that has all but died out in a scene where bands sound increasingly manufactured in an attempt to be appreciated. The Circus are none of that. This is no-frills rock with a sonic assault which is at the same time exhilarating and psychedelic in nature. Since 2007, they have played over 200 shows in the country and abroad and have put out two Full length albums (Bats, From Space) and a Covers EP titled “Sheep.”
