Aswekeepsearching: The world's only Hindi post-rock band

Uddipan Sarmah, frontman of the world’s only Hindi post-rock band, talks about gig challenges

When Prog catches up with Uddipan Sarmah, singer-guitarist with aswekeepsearching, he’s busy spreading the word about the band’s new album, Zia. A hands-on marketing push has seen him travel to 16 cities across his native India, organising listening sessions for an increasingly devoted fanbase. As one of the very few bands operating at the post-rock edge of prog, aswekeepsearching are somewhat unique in their homeland. “Post-rock is still a very new genre for India,” he explains. “The same goes for prog. Skyharbor are the only prog band that’s doing good here. But being influenced by post-rock music has definitely helped us to connect with a niche genre. People have started accepting us because we’re different.”
