Tryst Musicafe Presents Live - 'FIVE8' Band at Tryst MusiCafe.
Enjoy Every Friday.
After tantalizing the taste buds of the food connoisseurs of the city and mesmerizing the music lovers with their in-house band Illusion, Tryst MusiCafe adds another feature to its repertoire.
Taking forward its tradition of popularizing the MusiCafe culture, Tryst MusiCafe introduces FIVE8, a band that has been influenced from glam rock to soul; progressive music to pop. Its work resonates through a constantly evolving city life, running parallel and colliding with concrete construction, scorching temperatures, traffic jams, insatiable appetites, and just some plain wishful thinking.
About FIVE 8: Five8 was created in the summer of 2005 in New Delhi. Beginning as a college band at Delhi University, Five8 performed extensively within the Indian college circuit, playing many college shows and competitions. With this impetus, the members of the band Adhir, Aveleon, Robin, Shiv and Steve decided to take the band forward professionally in 2008, consciously writing and performing their own music.
With influences ranging from glam rock to soul, progressive music to pop, Five8's work resonates through a constantly evolving city life, running parallel and colliding with concrete construction, scorching temperatures, traffic jams, insatiable appetites, and just some plain wishful thinking.
Five8's music tells their story from within, and by stepping outside of the emerging Indian independent music milieu, using this apparent challenge to create Five8's unique sound. The band released its first self-titled EP in September 2010 featuring six original tracks, original band artwork and a range of merchandise. In the future, the band hopes to continue writing and performing in order to allow their music to lead them further.
As a part of the dynamic 'Indian Indie', Five8 believes that this is the time in India to let your music speak. 'Life gives you one shot, there are no retakes' (Believe, Five8, 2009).
