I am still in­volved with the ar­range­ment of mu­sic, while IP is still writ­ing the lyrics

Ra­jarshi Sanyal, gui­tars

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.
