The bootleg. Raw and real.

This was a live recording direct to 2track in Kolkata, India at the Soho Mojo on Aug 17th 2011. No edits.

Originally planned as a more elaborate and official recording, Kolkatas traffic beat us and the concert started and finished without our camera-man or recording facilities, leaving us only with bootlegged material from the audience to work with.

Featuring recent Red Bull Music Academy graduate Jivraj Singh, and iconic Kolkata underground musicians Amyt Datta and Monojit 'Kochu' Datta.


released April 15, 2012

Track Name: 'You're A Reason'
You're A Reason'

I'm still trying to figure out
The things I keep doing wrong
Searching for my answers.
So easy and difficult
To stumble, trip and fall
Bump my head against the wall
And I'm still trying to find my way
Each night and everyday
Waiting for that moment.
I'm hoping you'll hang around
Long enough, to hear this song
Cos' all I'm trying to say.

(Is) You're a reasonI would put my pride at risk for all.
You make me want to dive into this deep and scary ocean.

And I'm still trying to do it right
Fighting my bravest fight
One with no conclusions.
No promises no guarantees no winner takes it all
No rules,
No warning signs.
I feel like we're running out of words which can help us out,
Words can be so empty.
I'm scared that we'll turn around,
Walk away before it's time and that
Just feels so wrong.

Cos' you're a Reason I would put my pride at risk for all
You make me want to dive into this deep and scary ocean.
You're a reason I would stand here naked and unarmed
Defenceless with the single hope my faith will keep me standing.

I'm falling..
I'm Falling..
Falling down.
