Nathan Joseph Mendes, known by his stage name Tsumyoki (meaning vision, productivity and a positive mindset) is a 21-year-old artist from Goa who through his music aims to have his listeners reach the state of ‘Tsumyoki’ with him. “A state where we can all live in peace, in positivity and in pure unconditional love, and where the world has stopped its glorious rotations,” he explains in his Spotify bio. His first single Feel Okay from his new album dropped last week and we can’t stop listening to it on loop.

2. Anoushka Maskey

Singer-songwriter Anoushka Maskey released her dreamy new single So Long, Already. Again last month, her first release in over a year. “The song explores the unprecedented nature of a long-distance relationship by presenting the idea that while one would expect to get accustomed to something that happens often, separating and reuniting time & again is something you never truly get used to,” she writes.

Avanti Nagral’s new album Quarter Life Crisis dropped today and has us hooked already! Talking about her inspiration for the new music, Avanti says, “Being in your 20’s comes with its own challenges. Quarter Life Crisis outlines an experience familiar to many— feeling accomplished yet behind, feeling young yet responsible for everything, falling in and out of love, and the pressures of the digital age. The eight-song album is my most vulnerable work yet, inspired by personal narratives and a difficult year. It explores themes like losing control, heartbreak, navigating being in the public eye, adulting, situationships, self-acceptance and more. The hope with this album is for people to find a part of themselves in it, just as cathartic as it was creating it.”

4. Easy Wanderlings

Known for their delicate melodies and ambient soul, pop and folk influences, Easy Wanderlings is a Pune-based eight-member group. Their new EP Caught in a Parade is a soulful addition to their musical journey featuring comforting vocals and foot-tapping beats. Watch out for them at Lollapalooza India!

5. Frizzell D’souza

Nagaland’s indie pop rock band ‘Trans Effect’ dropped their new single We’re Gonna Make it featuring TK Lemtur, Big Dane and Nentong Konyak last week as the official theme song for The Nagaland Olympic & Paralympic Games 2022. The energetic rhythm and powerful lyrics are perfect for your Monday motivation playlist.

7. Thermal And A Quarter

Formed in 1996, Thermal And A Quarter is an indie rock band from Bangalore who describe their music as, “overtly western– guitar, bass, drums, English lyrics– but nested in that shell is a complex, multi-layered and nuanced experience: where Emily Dickinson meets Tagore, Phish meets The Mahavishnu Orchestra and Steely Dan goes out for a curry.
” Their new single What World is instant dopamine hit that is sure to get you up on your feet, dancing.
