Unhurried and poetic, the track called Yeh Pal waltzes with a steady rhythm. Lucid and oh-so-light on the ears, it moves with grace, wondering about the things one wonders about — about moments that melt away, and ephemeral emotions. Joining Yeh Pal in singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad’s second EP is Raat Raazi another number you can swing to. And to give those with a mushy spot for acoustic and folksy numbers, Kuhad (above pic) will be belting out a few songs from his upcoming album tonight.
“Nothing is concrete yet, but the album will probably have about 10 songs. We are looking at a October-November launch,” says Kuhad. A music video for a track called Oh Love, which is slotted to be a part of the English album, is currently doing the rounds on social networking sites. When Raat Raazi first came out late last year, iTunes gave a thumb’s up to Kuhad as they tracked over 24,000 downloads for his song which retained its place as a top single for a good few weeks.
For those of you who haven’t checked out Kuhad’s mellow sound yet, think springtime, and think Eliott Smith. No heated guitar strumming, no loud imagery or vocals; it is the simplicity of what Kuhad offers that makes you press “replay”, and wins his brand of music new enthusiasts.
The Prateek Kuhad Collective will play at Hard Rock Cafe today, 8 pm onwards.
