Drowning Melancholy are a goth/progressive metal band from Jaipur. are a goth/progressive metal band from Jaipur. I met singer Komal and drummer Alvin at the Battle of the bands at IIT Jodhpur in 2013 where they were performing with their sister band Fragile Silence. They put a good show and came 2nd.

Komal and Alvin have been working on new material for Drowning Melancholy and have released a video for their track “Defenceless”.
I spoke to frontwoman Komal about the video, being a metal band in Jaipur and also their plans for the coming year for Transcending Obscurity. Read the interview here
