In a short span of time, Delhi-based composer-songwriter Nishant Singh has shown tremendous range and versatility with his creative choices. His latest offering, “Hua Hua,” featuring West Bengal-based singer Neelasree Basu starts with the ‘90s vibe with all the Indian percussions before unleashing a heady blend of synths & hip hop.
The song is created from a female POV and tells the story of a girl who is waiting for her lover, who is coming to the village after a long time. “Regarding the song, we like to imagine it as a story of common people. We have always thought of the girl as a house help and the guy whom she loves works as a security guard in some metro city,” explains Nishant.
Nishant’s debut single, “Kaha Aagaye,” which was released last year in November was a quintessential indie genre song with a minimalistic fusion of electro. It’s the ideal number to sooth and calm one’s senses in today’s highly stressful environment. The song was sung by Vaibhav Singh.
Earlier this year, Nishant came out with his second single titled “Alvida,” which dealt with the feeling of a sweet but painful goodbye as two lovers are forced to transition to a long-distance relationship. Both the lyrics of “Alvida” as well as its music evoked inner pain and sadness which the situation demanded.
Nishant, a professional theatre director who has been directing plays for the likes of National School of Drama, has been composing melodies and writing songs for theatre plays as well as indie musicians for over 5 years. Both his previous tracks viz. “Kaha Aagaye” and “Alvida” have been creating a lot of buzz in the indie circuit over the last year with both listeners and critics praising them for their originality and simplicity.
