A New Confusion In Pop: Faridkot

by Team FUCCHA

They call themselves as “A New Confusion In Pop”. Most famous face from Channel V’s  “Launch Pad”. A popular name amongst YOUth for their famous tracks like Haal –e- Dil, Laila and many more. Yes, we are talking about Faridkot, a Hindi rock band based out of New Delhi. Sometimes they makes you laugh, sometimes they make you feel romantic with their amazing tracks. We caught up IP Singh, lead vocalist of Faridkot.   Here is a candid conversation between Inderpreeet Singh and Tarun Bhardwaj.       Tell us something unknown about Faridkot?   Faridkot is a musical experiment, an avenue for three of us, Sahil, Raj and I. Here we are trying to push the limits, trying to bring out fresh music to people. We started 4 years ago, have gone through changes and the purpose of this project is to serve our fans with the music.   How has been your journey from Engineer to Musician?   I was never really an engineer, yes I have a degree but well, I found my calling in music. I have never worked as an engineer, so technically, i've been a musician professionally all along.   Any memorable moment during live concerts? Lots of them, but I particularly like playing in Music Festivals and Colleges. People are open to new stuff at such avenues.  One concert which is very close to my heart when we played in Arunachal Pradesh. I was so much fun, and one person from the audience came up on stage and handed me a hundred rupee note. It was very funny. Have you found your LAILA? Yes, now I am looking for Shiela and Munni too.   Which is your favorite Indian band? Hard to name one. I am really fond of Indian Ocean, Avial, Hypnotribe, Soulmate, TAQ, Indigo Children.     How do you leverage social media to reach out to your fans?   Well, it’s the only place we leverage actually and also that’s the only place independent scene can be promoted. TV doesn’t show music beyond films and so is true with the Radio. Hence, accounts on facebook, twitter, soundcloud are great tools to get connected to your fans and make them feel personally connected to the band and the music. Oh! that reminds me, we are coming up with a new website too, www.faridkotmusic.com What, if you were to live without music for a month?   I'll start worrying about useless stuff and start seeing less colors. I guess.   Is IP Singh Single (Ahem)? Depends on who is asking ( haha)   What are your plans? Plans are to release second Faridkot album before winter this year. We already are ready with 9 tracks to put in it.  Beside that to make a studio someday, and keep making music, collaborating with artistes and also to rule the world :) Would you like to talk about “Why Faridkot has been disbanded”? It is nothing but a rumor, someone is trying dent the band's image. The band is on FULL POWER! And we have new songs, new vibes, new members and freshness to offer to our fans. ------------- Interviewed by Tarun Bhardwaj. He is something at FUCCHA, fancy title is CEO. He is Indiepop lover and a start up enthusiast. A Wanna be cook and traveler. If you know someone who has done something remarkable in his/her field then please write to us on info@fuccha.in. We would love to feature.
