Big Fish for April - The Shakey Rays
This summer, we feature a band from the land of the blazing sun. We're talking about Chennai, and the trio who call themselves The Shakey Rays. So raise your glasses of some ice-cold-whatevers to some good Indie rock 'n roll!
The Shakey Rays are a D.I.Y Indie Rock n Roll unit that combine the ancient traditions of Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and swing with the aggressive energy and attitude of Garage Rock and Punk.
The Shakey Rays is the project of Dhruva Gautham (guitars, vocals), Vikram Kannan (guitars, vocals) and Niranjan Swaminathan (drums).
Songwriting duo Dhruva Gautham and Vikram Kannan disbanded their first band, Easy Street, and got together with drummer Niranjan Swaminathan to write songs raw and rooted in Rhythm 'n' Blues, exploring various arrangements and musical patterns - with an approach that is fresh and contemporary.
Their songwriting sensibilities draw from the ancient traditions of Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and Swing, and are presented with the aggressive energy and attitude of Garage Rock and Punk. The live act is explosive and impulsive, setting the band apart in the Indian Indie circuit.
They released their debut album 'Tunes From The Big Belly' in August 2011. They toured the country with guest bassist Tiburtius Rubin in July 2012. The band is currently in the process of recording
singles for immediate release, and have begun work on their second album.
