I would never expect to bump into the band sounding like they could become the next Rhye in such a distant country – namely India. But the truth is, a Bangalore-based duo Klypp does sound impressive. It is composed of ex Bicycle Days’ frontman Karthik Basker (the band has gone on hiatus in January) and local producer Faheem Hasan who used to be a guitarist in a prog metal band (did not see that coming, huh?). They met at a workshop a while ago but have been making music together only since last December. The effect of this collaboration is a wonderful debut EP called Manifest which is going to be followed by Klypp’s first ever live performances and – hopefully – the release of some new material in the near future.
