Whenever ‘Alobo Naga and the Band’ comes out with new songs, it becomes an instant hit because of the fresh sound and feel. Recently, they released a new music video ‘All We Have Is Now’ which to no surprise has been very well received all over the country. Jadeed Hussain caught up with the band to talk about what the song is about, their expectations and plans for their next album.
What is ‘All We Have Is Now’ about and how did you pen down the lyrics?
It was written in the studio, last summer, when we were recording songs for the new album. ‘All We Have is Now’ brings forth a message about the social issue in daily life where there is a bias in almost all fields. The truth is being suppressed by different elements. The song talks about the artist’s perspective about the unfortunate situation, to be able to see things positively and making the best of what we have NOW!
It aired on VH1 India and MTV Indies and it got very good response not only in Northeast but from all over the country. Did you have a feeling that it will get a good response even before you released it?
We have been playing this song in all our concerts for almost a year now. This is one song which people always take home and tend to hum along with because of the catchy melody. There were many occasions when people come to us after shows or write to us asking about the song and where they can download it, so we were optimistic about the song before the official release.
When can we expect an album from ‘Alobo Naga and the Band’? What are you working on currently?
We are in the studio now, and we want to bring it out by the end of the year. Right now, we were experimenting with different sounds and trying to bring out the best in us.
