Parekh & Singh are a dream-pop duo from Kolkata, India. Nischay Parekh sings, plays guitar, keyboards and synths. Jivraj Singh plays drums, drum machines and effects. While Nischay has one foot in this world and the other in the realm of dreams, Jivraj is a student of math and logic and drawn to life’s darker recesses. Friends, enemies, neighbours and brothers – they wrestle, play table tennis, eat, think, argue, play chess and roam the streets. But, above all, they make music of whimsical, magical beauty and Ocean is their debut album.
These office dreamers have conjured nine glowing tracks of cosmic pop that shimmer like an Indian sunset. While undeniably sun-kissed, a darkness lurks within. Innocence is tempered by experience. The pill-popping oddity of ‘Hill’ plays like a ‘B’ movie trailer. With the latter stealing a line from Annie Hall, a shared love of Woody Allen, David Lynch and Wes Anderson comes as no surprise.
Parekh & Singh play Actress & Bishop Birmingham on Wed 24th May 2017. Tickets available here.
