Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rounak Maiti has been quietly releasing home-recorded acoustic experimentations, ambient ramblings and folk rock songs since 2011. What started as a bedroom-focused covers project like many other kindred spirits, evolved into sparse and confrontational ballads, characterized by Rounak's raw production and restrained, delicate voice. He joined forces with Pagal Haina Records (Run it's the Kid, Ditty, Peter Cat Recording Co.) shortly after high school, and has since performed live across India and the United States.
