Review: You are not alone E.P – Alien Sky Cult

Mar 13, 2013

One of the most exciting things about youthful Delhi-ites quintet Alien Sky Cult is that if they can hold it together, they’ve got plenty of time to develop as musicians. Given the quality of their debut E.P You Are Not Alone released on 23|02|2013, they have the potential to be one hell of a band. Led by Akkshit on vocals, this bunch delivers some...

Their moniker isn’t a reliable one indicator. Yeah! We did ask Adnan Ahmed , the guitarist and he said it’s just a random name.  He further admits that one of the guys came up with the name “CREEP” and I said why not add the word “VIRGIN” to it.

Unashamedly produced by the earliest member of the band (Zorran Mendonsa), Split’s debut effort “Counting Perfume” looks as though it’s apparently intended to shock, those who thought they were gone for good; owing to the fact that they were on a hiatus for a year long.

Album cover          Didn’t hear this one in 2011 but nonetheless, it’s placed in the starting- year list as no.1 in our shelves,here’s formally reviewing it. In case the name doesn’t ring a bell, the album is a must listen, this is a testament that would bring a definite end to the “seriously what’s in a name?” Also, a definite...
