Listen: Disco Puppet Releases Weekend Sounds
24 November 2015
Shoumik Biswas is a musician and bedroom producer based in Delhi and previously Bangalore, who makes music with Monkey In Me, Space Behind The Yellow Room and as Disco Puppet – his solo, electronic project that saw the release of his weird but very promising debut EP ‘Astronot’.
Disco Puppet has been on a SoundCloud rampage recently. He’s been releasing a new single every week for the past five weeks, and there’s more coming, as far as we can tell.
It’s really worth listening to the entire series. Biswas’ music is pretty rough around the edges, but there’s something in there that makes us want to go back. It’s organic, brimming with emotion and yet still playful, almost cheeky; Biswas makes it clear that he doesn’t take himself too seriously.
Our favourite song on the series so far has to be Weekend Sound #4 ‘Chora’, which caught our attention immediately with its swollen melodies, emotional vocals and beautiful mix of unconventional samples and more traditional Indian flavours.
