If you are wondering what the name means, keep wondering. We simply like the name and we love our music; put those together and you get PushingTin. PushingTin came into existence on the 26th of January 2006. SOUND: Our music is a blend of funk, alternative, jazz, and blues. We term our genre as METRO ROCK - mix of Modern & Retro. In short PushingTin has its own sound that's originated from different influences, and provides neutral, lovable sound. IDEALS: PushingTin believes in technical but listener friendly music, we aim at delivering a new sound that must appeal to all music lovers. We like to push our music making skills to its logical limit, stressing on harmony since all of us can sing. PLANS: The same as any sane band - “to make good music”. We are working towards making a tight professional set of about 14 originals, in the coming 10 months. Song writing skills is what actually gives any band its substance and it shouldn’t be rushed.
