INDIA: Post the success of their October 2020 release Jee Le Zara, which was both conceived and received as a youth anthem, Antariksh has just put out their next video single titled Raahiya. While Jee Le Zara aims at encouraging young folks to break free from the shackles of illogical customs and baggage that society / conventional wisdom thrust on us, Raahiya touches upon the fragility of life as a subject with message to follow our inner compass and refrain from falling prey to the stimulus around.
This pop / rock ballad with Antariksh’s signature introspective lyrics, hummable melody and a catchy chorus, urges the listener to seek and follow what’s truly important to them. It won’t be a stretch to say that the video of Raahiya, perfectly complements the lyrics and possibly, the fervent wish of the band members to be on the tour, playing music, live again. It features a combination of previous unreleased tour footage of the band, behind the scenes glimpses and shots of their live performances and recording sessions.
Standing at the crossroad of some tasty melodies and spicy grooves, Antariksh creates a very fresh, and progressive sound borrowing nuances from Rock, Pop, Reggae, Carnatic, and Funk music presented in a cohesive, thematic and powerful manner. The band members have collaborated and shared the stage with some eminent personalities including Farhan Akhtar, Ehsaan Noorani, Lucky Ali, Sachin Tendulkar, Rekha Bhardwaj, Noori, etc.
