Currents: Tejas, Chabi, Kayan.a and more

This week’s currents features tracks by Tejas, Hanita Bhambri, Swarathma among others.

Tejas – Lead

‘Lead’ is the captivating offering from singer-songwriter Tejas’ upcoming album. Rushaki Ghosh writes, “It also reveals a much bigger soundscape from Tejas’ older works, filled with dramatic horns and pads, which perfectly exhibits his consistent ongoing evolution.”

Parekh & Singh – Panda 

Whimsical new visuals amp up the feel-good factor in this deep cut about breaking free. It’s the perfect time to throw it back to the duo’s debut album, Ocean.

Cha’bi – Shayad Ke Main Zinda Nahin 

Cha’bi’s second single is a melancholic track that hits hard as it gives a peek inside the mind of someone dealing with depression. 

Kayan.a – Please

Nothing Anonymous’ Ambika Nayak aka Kayan.a teams up with producer Nate08 for a moody, R&B-tinged meditation on temptation and reconciliation. 

Hanita Bhambri – Nazukh

The prolific singer-songwriter wrote this song for someone “who is letting fears, cynicism and inaction get in the way of their happiness”, a feeling many could relate to in this period. 

Swarathma – Mushkil Mein Jeena 

The Bangalore-based band released a single that they’re rightfully calling a “virtual hug”. “Aayenge phool bhi rango ke sang aayenge”, they croon as humanity collectively waits to see the light after what feels like a never-ending storm. 

Rohan Solomon – Victoria’s Secret 

Singer-songwriter and composer Rohan Solomon’s second track of 2020 is about self-reflection. Solomon takes us on a journey of self-introspection – to admit to who you really are, accept it and allow yourself to be just that, leaving aside the concepts of ideals dictated by the world at large.

Listen to all the songs mentioned on this list on ‘Currents’, a playlist you can find on A Humming Heart’s Apple Music and Spotify profiles.
