Fusing elements of Progressive Rock, with the more easily acceptable mainstream song writing styles of Hindi Rock, seems to come naturally to Mumbai based band Coshish. The band believes that their songs should have mass appeal and yet retain enough musical dexterity to appease technical musicians without compromising on simplicity.
Their songs carry very strong social messages, delivered beautifully through Hindi lyrics. The band prefers singing in their mother tongue as they consider it as a more efficient method of connecting with people from every strata of society.
With groove driven bass lines, feel based solos, catchy riffs, Indian classical inspired vocals, technical yet subtle drumming, the occasional odd time signatures and very interactive and personal live performances, these guys sure know how to get the crowd singing with them.
