Parekh & Singh

Parekh and Singh are a music duo from Kolkata, India. They are an alternative rock band who mostly create dream pop music. In terms of lyrics and melody, Parekh and Singh are one of my favorite bands. The vocals are crisp and dreamy with lyrics that ponder over life and existence. The band is also at the forefront of the rising indie music scene in India and have done a tremendous job of introducing the genre to people in the region while producing music that is loved globally. They also have created beautiful music videos with very lovely aesthetics.

Included below is their debut album, Ocean.  

Beirut

Beirut has to be one of the most interesting and unique bands I have listened to. The American based, six-membered band led by Zach Condon combine genres of indie rock and world to create powerful music with vocals that echo with passion. The incorporation of world music is what I find most interesting as Beirut has been able to combine elements of mariachi, arias, Balkan music and chanson without it sounding odd or out of place. Rather it creates for beautiful music that I have not heard replicated by any other band. Check out this playlist of my favourite songs by Beirut.
