Revoic is a Delhi based musician and performer who started his musical journey in 2010. Revoic chose music as an outlet for his emotions and has crafted songs that are simple and evocative. Revoic’s music has transcended the usual genre boundaries and can be appreciated and enjoyed by fans of different styles of music. Revoic’s music started reaching millions of ears after many YouTube content creators started using it in their videos.
Music from Revoic’s EP “Khogaya” was also included in a critically acclaimed short film that won awards at many film festivals. Revoic’s musical journey’s watershed moment came when he was introduced to the shimmering world of electronic music. Ever since that, he has worked towards fusing electronic music with Indian music. Revoic usually wears many hats during the process of a song’s creation. He participates in the songwriting, producing and arranging sessions and has constantly improved in all three of those fields over the last decade. Revoic’s latest track “Bhaagey Re” has been created with frequent collaborator Raveena Paul and that’s the song we will be reviewing here.
“Bhaagey Re” kicks off with a dreamy atmospheric intro while the song’s main melody hums at a low volume which leads to Raveena Paul’s emotionally rich vocals. She croons “Sun Lo Na Tum, Meri Zubaan” and listeners will immediately feel obliged to fulfill her request. And it’s not because she asked so nicely, its mainly because she sang so nicely.
The vocal melody of the track is very tuneful and memorable. Raveena Paul does an admirably consistent job of singing it and her performance never wavers throughout the track. Her soulful and sweet voice does a great job of channelizing her heartfelt words straight into the listener’s heart. The reverb on her vocal lines is also very tastefully done, enhancing the song instead of making it sound artificial.
Musically, “Bhaagey Re” has strong rhythmic qualities that do a great job of carrying the song along while adding enough dynamics to prevent the song from sounding repetitive or redundant for even a second. Revoic has done a great job of fusing electronic music beats and instruments with a very Indian sounding tune.
The layering of Indian vocal melodies of Raveena Paul over Revoic’s rhythmic body of the song, is like a flowing chiffon saree draped over a Victorian corset. “Bhaagey Re” is a very well written, produced, and performed song which even has a strong commercial potential, especially among people who are looking for a fresh twist on their Bollywood type tunes.
