#IndieFind: FuzzCulture

Posted at April 8th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Drummer Srijan Mahajan and guitarist/vocalist Arsh Sharma got together in 2012 to create FuzzCulture. They don’t ‘genre-lize’ their music, rather they consider it a melting pot of styles, “If we were to describe our music to the uninitiated, it would probably be rock inspired electronic music with a mixed bag of influences ranging from punk, glitch hop, hip hop and metal.

They released their 6-track EP Indulge.Divulge in late 2013 and it shows these two rock musicians producing electronic tracks which are aggressive and jumpy. It’s a great example of rockers experimenting with electronic and doing it well without sounding generic. Using guitars and drums over glitched-out sequences, they’ve made a debut record that sounds like live and energetic electro music and shows that they’re great producers as well. Check out the Indulge.Divulge tracks below and follow FuzzCulture on SoundCloud for more.

They released their debut album ‘No‘ mid 2015 and had an action packed year where they played gigs all across the country for their album launch tour. The music video of their track ‘With Eyes Open’ made quite a few ripples in the indie circuit as it shows an elderly man celebrating a night of debauchery before returning to a medical facility to die. “The video was conceptualised by the team at Vh1 in Bombay and they sent us the script which sounded quite interesting to us. After a few back and forths, we managed to zero in on a concept that worked for us.” Check out this unusual and creative video below.

Both members play on and off separately for other bands in the circuit like Half Step Down, Parikrama, Cyanide, and The Circus, but they’ve managed a good balance between their work and it’s easier to coordinate since it’s just the two of them. They often argue vehemently over musical decisions but it’s just their creative process. “We tend to agree after a point and the songs come out for the better, so all is good! We had a blast writing the last song on the album, ‘Raw eggs’ since we wrote it in the jam room and it was different from the rest.”

In the 4 years since their conception, they’ve done a lot of things that young artists aspire for. They’ve been touring abroad, released quite a few tracks, and have remarkable stage presence. With so much going for them, there are few things they are worried about, “We sometimes fear an unresponsive crowd and the odd stalker!” Check out this interview they gave in Malaysia describing how they got their name and much more.
