We are absolutely thrilled to announce the first gig of the New Year! Featuring Delhi prog-rock maestros Kraken and Kochi/Chennai alternative rock act 'Fish In The Sink', both performing live in Chennai for the first time! Come down to Black Orchid on Friday, the 6th of January to witness these livewire bands in their element and ring in the new year with some great live music! Kraken are touring India, celebrating the launch of their brand new 7 track EP 'Club Namaste' which is currently taking indie music circles by storm. This event is a collaborative effort brought to you by TheChennaiScene and Bluetree.
Kraken is a Delhi based band known for using a traditional rock setup to create a genre bending fusion of dance music, pop, rap, rock and bhangra. Stylistically, Kraken has always been strongly rooted in rock while being very flexible in its appreciation of pop and dance music, not shying away from experimenting musically or visually to create an immersive experience for the audience. In 2020, Kraken successfully completed crowdfunding for their latest offering 'CLUB NAMASTE', a 7 track EP that has seen them delve into an aspect of introspection and talking about the experience of being in Delhi, from Delhi, the stories and anecdotes and looking outwards in to the world, chronicling experiences and sharing them - aurally, visually and thematically.
Fish In The Sink
Influenced from the grief-struck, howling guitars of grunge and fashioned from the dynamic complexity of progressive rock, Fish in the Sink was formed in 2015 by four musicians from Chennai with far too many hours spent in front of the computer. The band has evolved from “for-the-love-of-music' basement rockers to a coherent unit peddling a genuine and intelligent brand of rock music, as they blend sophistication with a carefree, neon- drenched, Saturday night drive aesthetic, traversing musical plateaus with virtuosic ease and precision. From groovy to moody to dark to light to tempestuous to calm, the quartet invites you to soak in a larger-than-life sound, contained by little, discombobulated ideas which shake, quiver, and sway before bursting through with fresh intensity. There's something new to hear, every time.
