'Submarine in Space' is a band to watch out for, led by Abhishek Mittal the Vocalist / Guitarist and the face of the band. He is on stage with a Bow or Tie making him stand out among the other band members Vaibhav Ahuja (Drums), Raaed Ehsan Azim (Keys), Madhur Chaudhary (Bass), Sayan Sinha (Violin/Cello/Flute), but so is their Music which is distinctly different. They are embarking on an India tour to launch their debut album “Wavelengths”. They have also worked a lot on their artwork which is artistic and very apt for their Music. Its like they really made a big effort with their artistic expression and with an eye on Merchandising.
R2R spoke to him about his album and to describe his Music and how the band came about, Abhishek responded saying, “Wavelengths” is a creative endeavor to bring out fresh music from seemingly incongruent sources. Inspired by genres ranging from old school Jazz to Hindustani Classical, he believes that describing his music would involve a series of epithets, simply identifying it as an expression of honesty. Transcribing deep seated emotions to the fret board and thankful to be flanked by musicians who stay true to this spirit.
Wavelengths is a five track Instrumental album which speaks about how people from different time eras are connected with each other. Also we’re a five piece band too, so… Every track captures a different element. For instance 83.83 talks about detachment and love and Meraki talks about doing something you love and giving it your 100%. We also want to keep the tracks open to every person’s perspective because our tracks are instrumental and every person’s imagination is limitless which makes it all the more fun. Wavelengths has the following tracks: Prince Of Rumada, 83.83, Jamilahn , Meraki & Incense.
The five of us have known each other since college. Vaibhav, Madhur and Abhishek Mittal from Hansraj College while Raaed and Sayan studied at Ramjas. We used to meet each other frequently in college competitions and it was my goal to have a band where there is true friendship because whenever you associate a feeling to your music, the audience also feels it and it is the best reward for a musician. We started writing the tunes way back in 2015, in December and instantly connected. For every tune there was only one idea involved - keeping music above everything else and giving each other a lot of space in our tunes. Wanted to see how the instrumental music scene in our country was so we recorded and released our first single Take Off in November 2016 which people accepted with a lot of love.
In September 2017, we decided to initially go with a Four Track EP by the name of Wavelengths but then we composed Incense in January 2018 and felt that instead of an EP we should have an album. Incense is also a special track on the album because it has been recorded live. The whole idea behind doing this was to go back in time where everything was recorded live and get over the fear of making mistakes. Three years have passed since we first met and finally we are here with the launch of our album Wavelengths on 28.09.2018 in New Delhi at Piano Man and are really pumped up about to do this.
