Grooveyard’s self-titled album impresses

While 'genre-free' bands have existed for quite a while, it is Grooveyard-- a project by Ashifur Rahman Chowdhury, Zunayed Sabbir Ahmed and Dewan Anamul Hasan – that truly solidified its merit in the context of this country. The band put out their self-titled album recently, with adoration from band music fans. The seven tracks exhibit seven different flavours, which is a rare feat for an album made by just three people. "We love to mesh different genres", says Ashifur, who was the vocalist of rock band Black at one point, "If you listen to Losing Control, it starts off with a reggae vibe and transitions into more traditional rock. All our musical inspirations growing up has an effect in our sound." Songs like Raining Sun, Edge of the World, Lifeline and Reach out are all proof of just how far the indie music industry has progressed. "Our songs are in English because as lofty as it sounds, we want international reach. We want to travel the world and play music together," says the vocalist. Ashifur emphasised the need to support local acts, for them to grow out of their moulds and reach their true potential. "Bands like Dads in the Park, Eida and Attic are doing exceptionally well, and I am all but sure that this entire scene will be elevated and reach the international audience," he adds. The songs are available in all the major streaming sites, including Spotify and GAAN app. They can also be listened to on Grooveyard's official YouTube channel.
