When Chennai-based quintet, the F16s stormed the gates of our collective musical consciousness back in 2013, it was a breath of fresh air.

The band comprises vocalist-guitarist Josh Fernandez, bassist Sashank Manohar, keyboardist/sampler Harshan Radhakrishnan, drummer Vikram Yesudas and guitarist Abhinav Krishnaswamy.
