Out Of The Box
The Shakey Rays are a four piece independent Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Chennai, India.
Songwriting duo Dhruva Gautham and Vikram Kannan disbanded seminal Chennai rock band, Easy Street, and got together with drummer Niranjan Swaminathan to write songs rooted in Rhythm 'n' Blues, exploring various arrangements and musical patterns - with an approach that is fresh and contemporary.
They released a critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Tunes From The Big Belly’ and toured the country with guest bassist Tiburtius Rubin in July 2012. The band is currently in the process of recording singles for immediate release, and have begun work on their second album.
Their songwriting sensibilities draw from the ancient traditions of Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and Swing, and are presented with the aggressive energy and attitude of garage rock and punk.
