about

Mirrors of the Mind is the band’s debut studio album. Their concept album is an introspective journey on the various conflicts we face as part of our modern day lives. It is based on the premise that we all are a cabinet inside a cabinet. The inner cabinet is all our thoughts that we hide away & that’s as real as you get & as close to getting to know your real self.

The album simply puts up a mirror, allowing listeners to vicariously reflect on the protagonist's emotional psychedelia as the story unfolds.

Mirrors of the Mind is India’s first cinematic psychedelia based concept album that lends listeners the experience of an introspective musical journey about the various conflicts we face in our modern day lives. The band’s sound blends psycho-acoustic samples with atmospheric musical passages & metaphoric lyrics that instantly create an immersive experience. It’s literally like a soundtrack to a movie that unfolds in your head.

The album is a collaborative effort with eminent international czars such as their Austin based, Grammy nominated mixing engineer Tim Palmer, Justin Shturtz who mastered the album at Sterling Sound and artwork from multi-disciplinary artist Jonathan Key who is based out of Sydney.

Mirrors of the Mind consists of 10 songs, each successive song leading the listener deeper into the protagonists emotional journey, immersing him further into a mesmerizing & unique space

Track Name: Deadweight
Hello, I need to talk to you. Can we meet?
Track Name: Monochrome Night
Roz roz raaton mein,
Uth key dekhoon chanda rey,
Tu na aaya,
Kaali raat ka saaya
Kaali raat ka saaya

Kaise sapne hain,
Jinme na dikhte apne hain,
Kaisi maaya,
Kaali raat ka saaya
Kaali raat ka saaya

Kya zillat hai jo mujhko khati hai,
Kya qillat hai jo jee ko aati hai,
Maine to apna hi bija jo paya.

Roz roz raaton mein,
Uth key dekhoon chanda rey,
Tu na aaya,
Kaali raat ka saaya
Kaali raat ka saaya

Kaise sapne hain,
Jinme na dikhte apne hain,
Kaisi maaya,
Kaali raat ka saaya
Kaali raat ka saaya

Raakh udti hai sapnon key shehron mein,
Daag dikhte hain kismat key chehron mein,
Raahon mein chalta hai thodi door pe saaya
Track Name: F*k O*f
Yun mita dena mera naam kahani sey,
Jaise koi likhta ho koi naam paani sey.
Saarey vaadey they aur kya zubaani sey,
Saarey lamhey they aur kya,
naadani sey.

Udti hai zyada, kati, jab hoti hai, patang,
magar yeh, kisi ki nahin hoti hai,

Kaash koi lele yeh kaash, mere seeney sey,
Saans phir jodey meri laash jeeney sey,
Khaak sab kar do saarey khwab, kareeney sey,
Iskey pehley hon jazbaat kaminay sey
Track Name: The Gatekeeper's Speech Part 1
Jabi maut hoti hai, woh time pey nahi rona chahiye.
Kyun? kyun, woh toh sab dukh sey door ho gaya.
Mar gaya, sab takleef sey door.
Track Name: The Gatekeeper's Speech Part 2
Jab bachcha paida hota hai, woh time pey rona chahiye.
Jab woh paida hua hai, woh jab tak jiyega,
Kaun kaun sa takleef sey guzrega.
Us key upar kitni museebatein ayengi
Track Name: Analog Code
Woh chhupa khada rehta hai
Woh jhankta rehta hai
Woh simta sa rehta hai
Woh sarakta rehta hai
Woh kisiko nahin dikhta, par mehsoos hota hai

Woh khaata rehta hai
Woh bhooka rehta hai
Woh aata hai, jaata hai
Woh ruka rehta hai
Woh mera saathi nahin hai, par saath zaroor hota hai

Kaaley sey tehkhaney hain
Jinke moonh khul jaane hain
Jo tera hai, jo tere hain
Sab nigal jaane hain
Track Name: State of Flux
Haath chhodey ehsaas key (dil mein mehsoos sab)
Lafz ney (par adhoora bayaan hai)
Saath chhodey saath key (rishtey mazboot sab)
Sabr ney (adhoora par itminan hai)

Door bhi, paas bhi, kyun lagey na zindagi khaas si

Toofanon mein kashti girney ko raazi hai
Barbadi ko apni mehmaannawazi hai
Doobein ya ubhrein ab lehreinhi maajhi hain
Bhavron ki gehrai manzil ki kaazi hai

Haath chhodey yaad key (naam chehrein hain wahi)
Vaqt ney (khasiyat faraar hai)
Saath chodey ghaav key (zakhm gehrey hain wahi)
Dard ney (ahmiyat khaaksaar hai)

Door bhi paas bhi, kyun lagey na zindagi khaas si
Thak gaye, bejaan sey, aarzoo hai ab kisi sailaab ki
Track Name: Map of Hope
Aaainon pey jo bhaap lagi hai,
Tere daagon ko dhaank legi,
Kisney kaha hai teri maafi,
Tere karmon ko saaf karegi?

Khidkiyon ki daraarein,
Kahan baarishein bhar degi,
Aankhon se behti dhaarein,
Kahan kismat ko mod degi?

Teri chausar pey yun haar key aye
Zindagi ko baalon sey kheench key laye
Kismat key haath bhi kaam na aaye
Darbaron mein yun, yun lut key aaye

Kagazon pey kheenchey nakshey,
Kahan manzil ko paa lengey,
Kisney kaha hai tere sajdey,
Tujhey jannat mein laa dengey?
Track Name: Dancing on the Leaves of Silence
Kaise paththar daale ye paani mein,
Jo ek leher nahin banate hain,
Jaa baithe zehen ki teh mein,
Aur ab aansu chalkate hain.

Thode se yeh parde to hilte they,
Ab yun hi thame reh jaate hain,
Saason key jhonkey to chalte hain,
Par dil mein ab kuch nahi udate hain.

Bhar do na taarey jitne,
Aasma yeh kaala rahega,
Kaantey bhi phir na chubhenge,
Dil mein jo chaala rahega

Aankhon ki chaar diwari mein,
Kaale panchi ab aate hain,
Lakhon sapnon ki laashein hain,
Sannatey noch key khaate hain.
Track Name: Weightless
Aaja chalein us or,
Jis raste pey na mod,
Bas badhta ek or,
Jahan raatein ghanghor.

Raaton mein aisa zor,
Nazron pe pardey odh,
Ab mita dey saare shor,
Sannatey charon or.

Gum hain galliyan, gum hain raste, gum mukaam hain,
Gum hain lamhe, gum hain ghadiyan, gum tamaam hain.
Aaj tak ki kashmakash sey ab araam hai,
Yeh woh manzar hai jo khud ka khud anjaam hai

Aaja Chalein is or,
Yahan thehrey saari daud,
Na khwahishon ki hod,
Na mayusiyon key daur.

Yeh Jahan hain koi aur
Na dishayein, na hi chhor
Har rasta ek khoj,
Ley jaye sach ki or.

Gum hai mehfil, gum hain apne, gum anjaan hain,
Gum hain chehre, gum hain saaye, sab gumnaam hai.
Aaj tak ki kashmakash sey ab araam hai,
Yeh woh manzar hai jo khud ka khud anjaam hai
