They are still confused about their sound and perhaps that’s why they still call themselves a confused pop outfit. Yet, for the Delhi-based band, Faridkot, which has gone through several lineup changes, (except the founding members I P Singh and Rajarshi Sanyal), their sound has evolved a lot since they first burst onto the scene. Sanyal admits that although the band went through several changes, the idea behind their music remains the same. “I am still involved with the arrangement of music, while I P is still writing lyrics. So the basic pattern remains the same. Just that there are different musicians with whom we jam, which is very interesting. We are really excited to play with different musicians, because there is so much to explore and learn from them,” he says. Sanyal further adds, “I think the break-ups happened, because at the end of the day everyone is in this industry to make money. So, some either got better offers or something similar. And we don’t want to pressurise anyone to stay with us, because that will spoil everything and make the band a formal arrangement.” Sanyal says that the Laila hitmakers soon will be releasing a new single and argues it won’t be a love song. “It won’t be about the boyfriend/girlfriend love. It will be more about falling in love with life. It will be different from our previous albums,” he signs off.
