So we requested the band’s vocalist Ashwin Gopakumar to share his to 5 favorite songs (in no specific order) that weave a complete story in themselves. Here’s what he needed to say:
‘I misplaced a pal’ by Finneas
Finneas is the type of songwriter you goal to be at some point. His songwriting abilities are so correct that he makes probably the most sophisticated issues sound so easy. I misplaced a pal is about ‘figuring out that you simply had a pal breakup’. The pal is round however you possibly can’t discover him — that has been put into easy metaphors of the every day life belongings you lose.
‘Stunning folks’ by Ed Sheeran
A songwriter who has the potential of telling tales. All his writings have an entire story line. You learn the lyrics and in that occasion you realize what he means. The ‘stunning folks’ he’s speaking about are these celebrities, the wealthy and the well-known in society. In keeping with the music’s refrain, this group of individuals appears to dwell an enviable life however aren’t as completely satisfied as they seem.
‘Daddy’ by Coldplay

He empathises, contemplating he’s a dad himself.
‘New gentle’ by John Mayer
John Mayer is a purposefully deliberate pop genius. Lyrically, the music is deeper than being a couple of woman. Mayer’s pursuing a lady who sounds uninterested, or is possibly simply unaware of his emotions, and he’s urging her to provide him “only one night time” in an effort to see him “in a brand new gentle”.
‘Lazarus’ by Porcupine Tree
A music that has stayed with me from the time I began listening to worldwide music. This music has such deep that means that it may be perceived in any means you need. It may be seen as a brand new starting, a farewell demise word, journey into the wild — the listener can have his personal model of what he hears. Steven Wilson is a era aside, a person with a imaginative and prescient; his music writing is all about notion.
‘Because the cheerless cities move my window
I can see a washed out moon by way of the fog
After which a voice inside my head breaks the analogue
Observe me all the way down to the valley beneath
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul’
