Pakistani band Raeth returns with new album
Mumbai: Pakistan`s Hindi rock band Raeth, which created quite a stir four years back with their song "Bhula do", is back with a new album "Hum Yaadon Ke Sang".
"We have dedicated this album to love. Through our music we want to spread the message of unity, peace and brotherhood," Wajhi Farouqui said on phone from Karachi.
"In our second album, people will notice a significant improvement in lyrics and sound. In fact we have adopted live sound for our songs this time," he said.
"This is a usual practice by international artistes. They use live instruments for recording. We have done the same," he added.
The album has 11 tracks and has infused flavours of reggae and rock.
"The album is quite balanced with a lot of experimentation. The sound is matured than before. Our focus has been on the serenity of eastern melody and the energy of rock music," Farouqui revealed.
The young band, which comprises four members, is also looking forward to collaborations with the Hindi film industry.
"Bollywood is great and we are looking forward to get into it. We are hoping that with our new album we might get that opportunity," the vocalist said.
