Coshish Launches Debut Album Firdous Under Universal Music India Label

MUMBAI: Mumbai based four-piece progressive rock band Coshish has released their debut album titled Firdousunder leading label Universal Music India, the label which has previously released albums by other critically acclaimed artists and bands including Euphoria, Rabbi Shergill, Lesle Lewis, Jal The Band and Indus Creed.

Firdous is a concept album consisting of ten tracks that document the life of a seemingly ordinary young man and his transition into becoming a self aware being, free from the ties of the material world. The CD contains photographs and handwritten lyrics behind them which are part of a puzzle in which listeners need to piece together the correct order of songs in the story. The album has been produced, recorded and mixed by Zorran Mendonsa (New Zealand), mastered by Jens Bogren (Sweden). Additional sounds and samples were recorded at Rattlehead Studio. The album artwork was created by Bernard Dumaine (France) and Daeve Fellows (Canada) along with additional art by Imran Ladak (India).  

Speaking on the occasion, Devraj Sanyal, MD Universal Music India and SAARC said, “Universal is thrilled to have Coshish on board. These young men are the most passionate musicians we have seen and we are sure that their debut album is going to make waves on the music scene.”

Coshish added, “We are so excited to be signed on by a label like Universal Music, one of the world’s most prolific labels. We hope that our debut album is a success as we have worked very hard to put it together.”

Coshish consists of Mangesh Gandhi (vocals, rhythm guitars), Shrikant Sreenivsan (lead guitars), Hamza Kazi (drums) and Anish Nair (bass). The band has been active since 2006 and has been featured on MTV's Rock On, NDTV and Channel [V] India's V Gumrah. Coshish has performed at several prestigious festivals across India including Storm Festival, IIT Madras, IIT Roorkee, The Blue Frog, IIT Mumbai and VCET. Coshish was voted as the Top 5 Headlining Act and Most Featured Band of Season 10 by UTV Bindass TV.

Coshish will be touring throughout India and has announced the Mumbai dates for the first leg of their tour. The dates for Pune, Chennai, Trivandrum, Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad will be announced soon.
