Featuring silken vocals and melodic riffs, the musical duo’s debut pop-rock single is the ultimate sonic medium of closure
Mumbai, 19th October 2020: Mumbai-based singer-songwriter Nikhil Shetty and pianist/producer Rishabh Ravi have released the music video for their debut single, “Aadat Buri Hai.” The track marks the genesis of the musical duo who go by the name Nikhil and Rishabh. Featuring silken vocals and melodic riffs, “Aadat Buri Hai” is not your typical song about breakups. Delving into healing and reminiscence, Nikhil and Rishabh’s debut offering is a sonic medium of closure and “Aadat Buri Hai” is already striking a chord with listeners.
Penned by creator, Nikhil and produced by Rishabh, the song charts the endless loop of separation and reconciliation between lovers. The four-minute-long music video features Nikhil as he types and discards letters at the typewriter, frustrated and encouraged by the memories of love. Conceived and filmed before the global COVID-19 lockdown, the music video for “Aadat Buri Hai” arrives as a much-needed salve of hope in a mending world. Nikhil bleeds ink on paper as he dreams of his lover and muse, a mesmerizing ribbon dancer who renders graceful choreography to the romantic track. Rishabh and guitarist Abhishek Dasgupta, too, feature in the music video, delivering emotive visuals as they create magic on their instruments.
Say Nikhil and Rishabh,
“ ‘Aadat Buri Hai’ is our debut single as a duo and it’s, hence, very close to our hearts.
A song about love, it was written to experience closure and healing.We hope this song sparks hope among listeners. We would also like to thank Qyuki for all the support they have lent in making this release happen.”
Important Announcement – EasyShiksha has now started Online Internship Program “Ab India Sikhega Ghar Se” during this lockdown.
