We live in a time where samples rule. We’re not saying that’s necessarily a good or a bad thing but it’s a facet that in some way makes everything sound slightly similar to what you may have heard. Before this era, it was all about ‘plug and play’. As HOOK, we’re trying to create a sound that feels the same live as it does on record. More on that when we release our first EP, which should be somewhere in the first quarter next year.
This was one topic where everyone had their personal favourites laid on the table. After a lot of deliberation, we settled on Hook, brainchild of drummer Pushkar Joshi for two main reasons. It is our attempt to feature a ‘hook’, a part you take back home with you in your head, on each song we write. Also, Indian band Zero’s first album name may or may not have played a massive role. P.S. As a band, we absolutely adore Zero.
