Colaba Point is the ambient-psychedelic quartet of Rukmini Roy, Ankur Chugh, Abhishek Denzil and Rohan Kadam from Mumbai in India.
Combining electronics with a range of instruments both modern and traditional Colaba Point take the listener on a gently rolling journey of sound. The band deliver measured paces of enrapturing compositions which subtly contain references to times of yore, that give the pieces a timeless elegance, whilst simultaneously using the latest technologies to expand the older themes and this enables them to develop tracks through slowly shifting sands of time.
The vocal, which sits aloof of the music, gives the audience a sense of sound-track commentary, adding a spacious feel to the tracks. This is not music in which to engage whilst chasing shots, rather to imbibe with a long drink to hand. Formed back in 2011 Colaba Point have established a live presence and a steady flow of recorded material has enables their wide ranging out-put to travel further afield.
Not an out-fit that seeks to travel anywhere near the mainstream, Colaba Point have created a distinctive style, that should be more widely heard as they add much to the weave of the world of music and it is pleasure to introduce them to you.
Future Flashbacks, which came out on the 6th is available on bandcamp.
