JUNE 2 | BETA SWEATER PEHNO FEATURED ON FAMILY MAN SEASON-2 SOUNDTRACK
Beta Sweater Pehno is a satire on the grade-driven academic pressure, a reality in the lives of Indian school kids. We were super-stoked to have this song on the soundtrack of "Family Man" - Amazon Prime's highly acclaimed edgy action-drama series. Our track truly highlights the boredom of a regular workday at the office for the protagonist, Srikant Tiwari.
Our first sync deal with Amazon Prime Video! And a start for many more, we hope.

SEP 23 | APPLE'S ONLINE STORE IN INDIA LAUNCHES TO OUR TRACK KHUL JA RE
Here is something HUUGE. A dream collaboration unfolded - Apple, the much-admired brand, launched their online store in India and selected the opening bars of Khul Ja Re, as the soundtrack to their promo-video. Our unique, pulsating, playful rhythm celebrates this milestone in Apple's 20-year journey in India.

SWARATHMA DIGITAL CONCERT EXPERIENCE
Our music thrives through the live-concerts we perform in public-spaces. After nearly two difficult years of social-distancing and cancelled shows, we are just getting back to performing live. But, the pandemic is not behind us yet. For now, our shows will be capped-ticketed events with all necessary precautions.
Living through these tough years, our belief in the power of music in bringing communities together has only grown stronger. We are doing out bit to bring you some musical joy in these trying times across multiple platforms and streaming services on social media. We have shared our quarantine thoughts, played music from our homes and re-imagined songs that are our old favourites even as we make new music. We are partnering with our friends and committed organizations to lend ourselves and our music for several fund-raising efforts to support artists and relevant causes.

Even as the pandemic kept us home-bound, we kept supporting the causes that matter so much to us through our music. Raising awareness about India's looming water crisis, participating in a public dialogue on making childhood safer or singing to protest mass deforestation, continue to do our bit. We hope that you join in too and be a part of our tribe.
