About the project

We are a relatively new band in the Independent music scene and started our journey as a band in 2015 and since then we have been quite active in the performance circuit. We have been writing a lot of music together in this short period of time and been performing them live. 'Before the Plunge'  is an attempt to compile 5 of our most loved compositions into an E.P and reach to people who have been asking us 'Where can we find your music?' . The E.P consists of 5 tracks: - Close to my heart : A Pop-rock love ballad - Bombay- A bluesy track about a girl who reminds you of Good o'l Bombay. This track is written by Gaurav Parab (the author of Rustom and The last storyteller of Almora ) - Let the phase - A pop rock song about moving ahead - No fear only Love - A reggae country song about 'Who knows what's ahead in future, Live the present with love' - I can't have enough of you - Another song about madly being in love with a person.   Our Band consists of Kaushik, who is a vocalist and a producer with experience of more that 15 years in live performance, Rahul who is the bassist and a co-writer in the band been playing the bass for the last 7 years or so, Deepanjan our lead guitarist who has been playing for the last 10 years and Pruthvi a seasoned drummer who has been in the live scene for the most of his adulthood.

Below are some of our performance links:

Live Show-reel


Why crowdfunding?

Most of us are full time musicians and so to pump in all the money we earn from shows into the E.P wasn't really a feasible thing to do. That's where we thought of crowd funding not just as a way to fund our project but also a way to reach to as many people as possible and make them aware of what we are doing.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 10000 in Audio recording

Rs. 60000 in Music Video

Rs. 50000 in Audio Mixing and Mastering


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

To complete the project withing our target time of this year end and also be ready with the video.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

Independent Music industry in India lacks formidable number of backers or producers as compared the amount money being pumped into the more popular Bollywood music.It's a difficult journey for musicians who are trying to be creative while producing the music they believe in. And if you believe that we are creating something ,which tugs your heartstrings in some way then please support us and we wont disappoint you.
