Yatin Srivastava Project is ready to release its first full length album titled ‘Chaos // Despair’ on the 25th of May 2018. A record that has been in the making for close to two years, it showcases the first instance of a personalised sound the band can call its own. Clocking in around 45 minutes, the record is divided into two broad themes, showcasing each theme through a series of 3 songs. The content of the record mostly deals with Yatin’s experiences through the last three years and beyond. More so in detail, the songs deal with themes of political disarray, religious fear-mongering, war, loss, the lack of inter-personal connection, battles related to mental health and personal strifes through the two themes of ‘Chaos’ and ‘Despair’.
The album features an array of guest artists including Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson) and Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief) amongst various Indian artists prevalent in the Indian Music Industry including Dhruv Visvanath, Kunal Singh (The Stage 2 Competitor), Sanjeeta Bhattacharya (Berklee Alumni) and Arjun Mathur (Meinl Drums Endorsee). This continues the project’s concept of collaboration and taking the songs from an individual stand point to that of a musical collective.
