Fleeting Glimpse is a classic rock band comprising:
Tarang Joseph- lead vocals and piano
Ashwin Sriram – guitar
Siddarth Verma – guitar
Surya Kalyanaraman – bass
Kethan Gupta – drums
The band was formed in 2012 when these musicians where still in their 7th and 8th grades at school. They have played at several esteemed venues including the Sunday Soul Sante, The Alliance Française de Bangalore’s Fête de la Musique, The BFlat Bar, Indiranagar and Autumn Muse. They have also won various Battle of the Bands competitions in Bangalore. The band name originates from a line in the Pink Floyd song ‘Comfortably Numb’, which is a band favorite. Recently, some of the band members have been inspired by EDM music and the band will present two original tunes based on this.
