Komorebi & Frame/Frame

Frame/Frame a.k.a Nikhil Kaul can best be described as an architect of moods and spaces. Difficult to pinhole, his sound is a kaleidoscopic arsenal of the smooth, crunchy, melodic, synthy, dirty and raw, channeling hip-hop, D&B and bass music sensibilities into a sonic imprint all his own. In the past couple years, Frame/Frame has come to be regarded as one of the innovative electronica acts in the country and has opened for Pretty Lights Music imprint artist and American glitch-hop heavyweight Michal Menert, performed his live set at NH7 Weekender and Magnetic Fields Festival.
Komorebi is an electronica outfit from New Delhi, spearheaded by Tarana Marwah who started this project independently in February 2015. Komorebi, immensely inspired by Japanese Anime Sountracks, is a Japanese word that translates to - "Sunlight that filters through Tree Leaves." A twisted test-tube offspring of Pink Floyd, St. Vincent and Alt-J morphed into a haunting folklore ensemble, the nostalgic sound of Komorebi demands your attentive ears as the accordion and ukelele guide you into an ocean of vocal harmonies and euphoric ambience.
