I fell upon this gem of a band when I decided to watch Hemlock Grove. Their song “Breathe” haunted my mind for days and that’s when I fell victim to their EP, Dark Rituals. Each and every time I hear this EP I catch myself swaying my body, losing sight of what I am doing. Their tunes are hypotonic and leave me catatonic. Sometimes I daydream about kissing anyone in pouring rain as Allie Sheldan, lead singer, hums her haunting tunes in my ear. I am absolutely obsessed with this band and I am not afraid to call them Plug it In’s band of the year.

It seems as if I can’t get enough of the Bollywood genre, which has been mostly due to the mind-boggling music I have come across. I stumbled upon Pritam when I was searching videos of Shahrukh Khan on YouTube. When I heard “Marjani Marjani” pour out of my speakers I found myself shimmying my shoulders left to right. While I did not understand a word that was being sung, I, without hesitation, began to sing “Marjani Marjani”. Pritam is a composer and is widely versde in creating scores for Bollywood movies. His most recent, R….Rajkumar which features contagious songs such as, “Gandi Baat” and “Saree Ke Fall Sa”.
