In our latest Band Spotlight, we chat to Indian alternative rockers, Man Goes Human.
S] What are the biggest challenges you face as a band?
One of the biggest challenge includes introducing our vibe and feel to the audience. All venues in India are very different, and also the audience that comes with them. We think making such different clusters of people move to your own music, is the most satisfying thing in the world. Another big challenge in the country right now is the diminishing market for indie music. So we are also planning tours overseas in the next few months, specially when we get a lot of airplays and reviews from the international scene.
S] What motivates you outside of music, think specific people and places?
We’re all working boys, and working in fields outside of the music industry. This in turn helps us become very professional in terms of the band and our jobs and maintaining the balance. This different side of the world kind of brings out the best in our music, as we are able to see and explore different facets of life..
S] What are your plans for the future?
We’re looking forward to head on some international tours by the end of the year, and recording and releasing some more new music early next year. Exploring more avenues outside India is on priority. We have South East Asia & Europe being planned as of now.
S] What’s been a career highlight for you?
Performing in unique places in one of them for sure. We have performed in the middle of the desert (for Ragasthan festival, 2018) & braved a Sandstorm during our performance (https://www.facebook.com/ManGoesHuman/videos/1157008351102593/). Performed at big festivals like South Asian Bands Festival and NH7 Weekender. Our Singapore tour was another big achievement. And of course our latest EP has garnered a lot of praise amongst both critics & audiences.
