The Room Upstairs

Its hard to find a Shoegaze band in India…hell..till date I have seen none…never heard that layers of guitar resonating a feeling of warmth and escapism…

So I was taken by surprise when I came across “The Room Upstairs”…not only the band filed under Shoegaze…the band is actually a one man(..or a boy)’s army…

Aniruddha plays the guitar…predictably..he sings too… the rest is some willing-to-help gadgets..judging by the songs….that’s all he needs…

Songs like “The Atlantic”, “Under the sky” and the rest have one thing in common…melody…his voice is accent free and perfect for the genre. You wont be able to stop yourself appreciating Aniruddha when you hear the songs.

No solos….and Thank God for that… And he has only 3 friends in the list… It seems he is more interested in making music than promoting his guitar skills and songs..Bless him…

Finally..his songs are more closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine or Ride…They lack the noise rock aspect of Shoegaze…but…I am watching him…someday he might surprise us all….
