We have a new format on the Horns Up Podcast where the music takes center stage. Presenting Breakdown, a deep dive into a piece of music, and an attempt to appreciate and understand the musicians behind it.

The first track under the scanner is Drop Dead Gorgeous by Mumbai metal act Devoid. The song is a “A skewering look at our social reality, in this case, virtuality.” Vocalist/guitarist Arun Iyer joins us to break down the track and talks about Devoid’s comeback.

Music knows no boundaries. A statement that can very well help the lay listener understand why Sitar Metal works as well as it does. On this episode of Horns Up, the virtuoso behind Sitar Metal, Rishabh Seen talks to us about his journey so far, and the effort, learning and work it takes to marry the two worlds.
