Prateek Kuhad – Shehron Ke Raaz EP

PRATEEK KUHAD UNVEILS OFFICIAL SHEHRON KE RAAZ VIDEO

WATCH HERE

NEW EP SHEHRON KE RAAZ

AVAILABLE NOW

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad has unveiled the official music video for Shehron Ke Raaz, the title track from his recently released Hindi EP. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Reema Sengupta, the slice-of-life music video pays a charming ode to old Bombay and captures a theme that is central to the four-track Shehron Ke Raaz EP, secret stories of love nestled in the big cities. The video is streaming now on the artist’s official YouTube channel.

Kuhad shared, I’m super excited about the ‘Shehron Ke Raaz’ music video – been waiting to share it for a while. I worked with Reema on ‘Tum Jab Paas’ last time around and we’ve known each other for many years. She’s a dear friend and a brilliant filmmaker. The music video has a lot of vibes – can’t wait for everyone to see it!

Shedding light on the vision behind the music video, director Reema Sengupta adds, Prateek and I have been working together for many years, and it was exciting to put together his first dance music video! ‘Shehron Ke Raaz’ felt so beautifully nostalgic to me, I knew I had to create a visual mood that feels the same. Every city has its stories of hidden love, that play out in fleeting glances, secret dates, and coded gestures. I wanted to explore what that romance would look like if the world wasn’t watching. I wanted to make this feel rooted and real, and have this couple’s little fantasy of romance play out within that reality. Something that feels, at once, old-worldly and contemporary. And hopefully, emotionally – timeless.

The Shehron Ke Raaz EP arrived earlier this month and has already amassed nearly ten million streams globally. Kuhad returns his Indian roots on the project, recording in Bombay and singing in Hindi as he explores the intimate, often hidden worlds that lovers create for themselves. There’s a sweetness to his delivery that transcends language and culture, resulting in a dreamy and profoundly moving body of work that speaks to the kind of fundamentally human desires that bind us all. The four-track collection includes an acoustic version of Kuhad’s 2020 breakout hit Kasoor, and was heralded by singles Tere Hi Hum and the EP’s title track. Shehron Ke Raaz is available now on all streaming platforms via Elektra Records.

Last fall, Prateek announced his signing to Elektra Records, making history as the first solo Indian act to join the storied label. The news was heralded by the re-release of his 2018 breakthrough EP cold / mess, lauded by Atwood Magazine as an utterly breathtaking, expansive piece of indie folk mastery. The collection has racked up critical praise from NPR, Vulture, Billboard, Uproxx, and former President Barack Obama, who featured cold / mess on his 2019 Songs of the Year playlist. In February, Kuhad shared cold / mess (on piano), a stripped-back take of the delicate ballad.

About Prateek Kuhad

Hailed by Rolling Stone India as one of the country’s leading singer-songwriters, Prateek Kuhad has taken the rest of the world by storm in recent years, writing and performing in both Hindi and English and garnering a slew of accolades and honors around the globe with his mesmerizing, cinematic songwriting.

Growing up in the small city of Jaipur, India, Kuhad’s childhood listening diet consisted primarily of the Indian pop and Bollywood soundtracks that filled the local radio dial, as well as his parents’ CD collection, which contained only limited Western music. A move to New York City for college opened Prateek’s eyes to a new world of music, discovering Elliott Smith and inspiring him to seriously pursue his musical ambitions. While Kuhad has long been a household name in his native country (he became one of Spotify India’s most-streamed artists when the service launched there and the cold/mess EP debuted at #1), 2019 proved to be his breakout year in North America, with a star-making turn at SXSW and a cross-country headline run that culminated with three sold out shows in New York City.

Prateek’s debut album In Tokens and Charms was an instant hit, earning the artist an MTV Europe Music Award, Indie Album of the Year honors from iTunes, and the title of Best Pop Artist at the Radio City Freedom Awards. The album’s opening track, Oh Love, captured first place in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, which previously helped launch artists like Gotye and Passenger to global audiences. Kuhad has sold out auditorium and amphitheater dates across India, landed arena support slots with the likes of Alt-J and Mike Posner, and traveled the world for headline and festival performances in the US, UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, and France.

There’s a sweetness to his delivery that transcends language and culture, resulting in a dreamy and profoundly moving body of work that speaks to the kind of fundamentally human desires that bind us all.

Big cities have countless stories of lovers lost in their own little worlds, and while their particular corner of the city may be small in the grand scheme of things, their emotional universe is large and all-encompassing,” Kuhad explains. “This EP explores love in a very gentle and personal manner. The stories are hidden, and they belong to those who wish to participate in them. The music attempts to represent hope, mystery, and wonder in the most beautiful way possible.”

BESTIVAL 2017 HEADS TO BALI

Bestival Bali, the award-winning UK festival to hit Indonesian shores on 30th September and 1stOctober, has revealed its next wave of acts.

Adding to an already jam-packed line-up, Bestival Bali has added the multi-platinum selling Pendulum, who will be playing an exclusive DJ set in their iconic, electronic rock style. Also, hailing from Australia, new artists to hit the bill include electro-duo, Bag Raiders, multi-instrumentalist, Kilter, and the tech-house powerhouse, Colour Castle.

The new announced acts follow Bestival Bali’s first artist announcement, featuring old friends and new from Alt-J to Purity Ring and De La Soul. Promising to make the inaugural edition one to remember, Bestival will bring its trademark unique, creative vision from the UK to the paradise island of Bali, Indonesia.

Rob da Bank, Bestival curator says “So here we are upping the ante with our first foray into Indonesia’s festival scene. We’ve got some old-school legends, hip hop wizardry and indie beauties, so we’re adding some serious antipodean vibes with the like of Pendulum, Bag Raiders and Kilter who are all smashing it down under. We’re only a (long) stone’s throw from Australia so you’ve no excuse. Book ya flight!”

 

First up, the mighty Pendulum! Taking to the hallowed Bestival decks, the festival is honoured to welcome the founding member of one of the most exciting musical forces of the last decade – Paul ‘El Hornet’ Harding of drum & bass and metal behemoths Pendulum. Landing in Bali as part of a busy summer, that includes a residency at legendary Ibiza super club Amnesia, expect some insane drum & bass action from one of the finest DJs in the game.

Australian duo Jack Glass and Chris Stacey are Bag Raiders, purveyors of spectacular electronic madness that has been setting the world alight since their debut EP was unleashed over a decade ago.  Chances are, if you’ve stumbled into a club, wobbled at a party, looked into the light at a festival or dawdled along the radio dial then you’ve been exposed to the majesty of Bag Raiders, who now bring their incredible live show to Bestival Bali.

One of Australia’s top 20 most streamed electronic artists, Kilter has quickly made the leap from burgeoning multi-instrumentalist to household name. Adored by listeners from all corners of the internet and festivalgoers alike for his euphoric, energised sound, Kilter is the moniker for 24-year-old Sydney rising star Ned East. Having amassed 40 million streams online, multiple visits to the top of Hype Machine charts and triumphed in the Triple J Like A Version studio, he has extensively toured Australia and played every major festival in the country. 2016 saw Kilter depart on his debut UK/EU tour and 2017 saw him touring across America.

Renowned for his melodic poolside grooves and slamming late night stompers, Colour Castle has been a driving force on the Aussie tech house scene for years now, gaining favour with the likes of Carl Cox, Doorly and Hannah Wants with one powerhouse release after another.

 

Bestival Bali will take place at the incredible Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK Cultural Park). With breath-taking vistas across the tropical landscape of Bali, and with over 240 acres of parkland centred around 25m high limestone-carved cliffs. Bestival will entertain the audience with eclectic music from around the globe as well as offering immersive experiences, delicious food and unforgettable shenanigans – in a way that only Bestival can.

 

Announced so far:

ALT-J / RUDIMENTAL (DJ SET) / PENDULUM (DJ SET) / DE LA SOUL / GEORGE CLINTON PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC / PURITY RING / THE CUBAN BROTHERS / BAG RAIDERS / KILTER / COLOUR CASTLE (DJ SET) / ROB DA BANK / STARS AND RABBIT / RAS MUHAMAD
