Very refreshing alternative rock band. These guys are awesome not only are they very talented indeed but they are very uplifting to listen to. With an array of modern pop/rock sounds accompanied by some fantastic vocals, you’d be a fool not to like them. Reminds me a lot of Snow Patrol or Keane long time favs of mine. Vocally superb, Lyrically supreme and the music is just brilliant.
The Bangalore/Cochin based Alternative Rock band was formed in 2011 when they jammed with a couple of friends in their hometown. Their debut album ‘Shapes On The Wall’ is one of the best sounding modern rock records in the Indian music scene. Inspired by bands like Washed Out, Band Of Horses, Braids, Tycho, Tame Impala, Toro Y Moi, Atoms For Peace, Baths, Wild Beasts, Jon Hopkins, Deerhunter, their music is intense, soulful and transcendent.
Considered as ‘An artist to watch out for’ by The Rolling Stone Magazine in 2012 and nominated for ‘The Best Upcoming Artist’ category for Jack Daniels Rock Awards in 2013, Black Letters is now known to be one of the most creative and appreciated bands in the country. The band has toured all over the country and has played the biggest festivals including the NH7 Weekender and the Go Mad festival. Black Letters’ track ‘You Say’ was nominated as ‘Best Rock Song of 2013’ by VIMA Global Music Awards.
They have taken a turn from their previous Arena Rock style to an Electronic and Dream Pop influenced sound with their highly anticipated forthcoming record ‘Petrichor’, which is scheduled to be out by December 2015. The first single from the new record titled ‘Phila’ was out on August 21, and its music video gathered praise from fellow musicians and fans from across the country.
