JOSHUA SINGH X SAHIR X K O K U M – “BREAKFAST IN BED”
Updated: Jan 18
Mumbai-based acts Joshua Singh, Sahir and k o k u m team up for “Breakfast in Bed”, a heartfelt tune that blends experimental hip-hop, RnB, and electronica in a unique fashion. The artists showcase pure chemistry and versatility with themes of inclusivity, love from the multilingual, multicultural city of Mumbai. Blending English and Hindi in a seamless way in the song, they give listeners the best of both worlds on the track.
The melting pot that is Mumbai also inspires the sonics of Breakfast in Bed. Despite its brief playtime, this single is packed with both ‘loud’, and ‘quiet,’ moments, reflecting the lived experiences of many Mumbaikars. The occasional ‘busyness’ of the production is a transmutation of the constant noise of pre-lockdown Mumbai, providing a counterbalance to the minimal Hindi verse by Sahir and electronic English RnB vocals from Joshua and k o k u m. The wide palette of sounds and influences, from textured vocal samples to classical raaga synthesizers, is a reflection of modern, urban Indian. This is not fusion. It’s completely Indian, our own indie atmanirbhar.
