Introducing Faridkot- a 'Confused Pop' band from Delhi. Why “Confused”? They think that the confusion mostly comes in once you hear a mix of pop vocals, bluesy guitar playing, funk bass lines, melodic (and sometimes pompous) electronic layers flavored with a pinch of jazz-based drums all combined together in a heap of musical endeavours that they like to call their own. Sometimes in love, sometimes trying to be funny and a little more loving; they just like to play some good music which might transcend the individual inspirations that each musician brings forth. 

 

 

FARIDKOT is:


 

Inderpreet Singh:IP used to sing lead vocals for an esteemeed musical convergence by the name of Artistes Unlimited based in Delhi for over two years. He was also featured in their debut album, En Route, and has performed live in various locations all across India with the same group.
