A year after making waves with his debut EP ‘Jump Alaska’, Indian post-metal band Medddler returns with a post-progressive wall of sound blended with myth-fantasy storytelling. Clocking in just a little under 30 minutes, the new album ‘Upsurge’ is equal parts unpredictable, as it is reliable with rhythmic, heavy pockets – symbolic to the experience of riding a wave.
Medddler is the alter ego of the Indian Composer, Guitarist and Producer Angad Bhatia (23). Inspired by the idea of physically bending and meddling sound waves to compose, Medddler’s music is filled with carefully crafted patterns and passages that explore different avenues of his mind. Angad’s other projects include Mumbai-based bands – Festacorn (Progressive Metal), GreyFade (Punk-rock) and CandyFloss (Electro-Synthpop).
With Upsurge, Medddler retains the idea of meditative escapism from his last release, while taking it a step further by building a world with picturesque sights and sounds, inviting the listener to step in and experience it further for themselves.
