After two years of hiatus, Awrr, a Dhakuakhana-based musical band released its third single HP on November 11. During the gloomy pandemic days, the song HP tries to inculcate positivity and happiness in the hearts of its listeners. HP here is the happy pill that the band wants people to take. Awrr that released its first song Xopunor Baat in 2016 followed by Heruwa Xubaax in 2018. This time came up with another beautiful rendition and its creative audio-visual presentation. After HP‘s release, VibesMojo in conversation with one of its members, Prankrishna Borgohain tried to know the intent of the creators behind the single.
“HP came about in jamming sessions during the COVID-19 lockdown period. We had the basic beat of the song or at least the idea of it for a very long time. But, writing and composition were done this year. 2020 has been a weird year for all of us; terrible things have happened; even the mental spaces have been affected. But we have to remember not to lose hope and to go live our life. HP is about that. Often, we will be surrounded by some tough and hard moments, but we have to look for the small chances, faint glimmers and hope that things will be alright. So, all in all, HP is not only about 2020 but life in general, telling us that we can still hope”, said, Prankrishna Borgohain.
Formed in July 2015, Awrr’s objective as a team is not merely the creation of some unique and insanely great music, but also spreading love and inspiration through their music. The song that got released over the official YouTube channel of Awrr is a result of a collaborative effort by Diptanshu Gogoi (Vocals), Avijeet Bora (Guitar), Tonmoy Gogoi (Bass), and Prankrishna Borgohain at drums. Rodali Sharma has looked after the English Translation of this Assamese single whereas the animation and production have been completed by Jyotirmoy Devnath and Hirak J Sharma respectively.
While explaining the third step in the journey of the band, Prankrishna added, “I think all the three songs are different in characters as well as the structures. This time for HP, we tried to make it musically different. We are getting feedback from our listeners that the music this time sounds different, which makes us smile. Also, this time the lyrics dances on the borders of fiction and reality. So, that was a bit of a tough job. We also have a few songs lined up after this, which would be again different from these three.”
With its first two songs getting higher viewership and love, it will be noteworthy to see how the audience reacts to the composition. The band hopes more and more people to listen to it and consume the ‘happy pill’, it intends to serve. Prankrishna tells VibesMojo that the songs had a feel-good aspect from the very beginning. “We all need some Happy Pills at one point or another in life. This one is for our listeners from us”, he adds on behalf of the entire team of Awrr.
Carrying an old school touch with the fusion of modernism, HP is a beautiful composition to have on your must-listen list.
