"Overhauls can be powerful. And more so when they happen in your own garage. Spook is a band that’s a manifestation of pure, unbridled, raw energy. A collective of five band expats barely-into-their-twenties minds; Spook sounds fresh off the laundromat – spiffy.
Akshay Deodhar on vocals and rhythm guitar is the songwriting talent, crafting the incendiary musicianship of Anis Gandhi on piano, Zain Calcuttawala on percussion and drums, Clavell Santiago on violin and Sonam Lama on bass into scattered sound-packets stitched in melodies and harmonies. Grunge based, heavy, reverberating sounds echo in a spiral of constant whirlpool of musical emoting – Spook represent everything a young band should be. Passionate.
That’s the least you can expect out of an outfit represented by a gawking Owl called Pedro as the mascot, considering their influences range from Pearl jam, Chris Cornell, Coldplay, RHCP, GooGoo Dolls, Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, The Calling and Kings of Leon to name a few. Progressively new age, yet rebelliously old-skool; Spook songs bridge the gaps between instrumental solos and melodic riffs enchantingly.
Diverse logic may be easy to define each band mate’s musical heritage Post their one gig at Café Goa where they played a 3 song solo set, where a call for resurrection from a threatening damper called power failure only displayed their eclectic performance skills. This be true grunge and just made you raise your fingers in a \m/. ‘Spook’ have the potential to spook the daylights out of you. Hang around and lend an ear!"
