The Yellow Diary releases new single 'Mujhe Mere Naam Se'

MUMBAI: Back with a thought-provoking poetry infused with modern soundscape, the Indie-pop Rock band The Yellow Diary released first single ‘Mujhe Mere Naam Se’.

The Yellow Diary is a group of 5 members, Himonshu Parikh (music producer), Rajan Batra (vocals), Stuart Da Costa (bass), Vaibhav Pani (guitar) and Sahil Shah (drummer).

Check the interview below:

After a long wait, you've released Mujhe Mere Naam Se today. How do you feel and can you tell us a little bit about your connection with the song?

It's been a while since our last release and it's been some time since we've waited to put this song out . We're really excited . As far as the connection to the song is concerned , we write songs about our emotions and all that we experience in our lives which makes all our songs very close to our hearts and this song isn't any different .

Would love to know the story of how the song came to be - what was the process like and how did you guys end up on this final output?

Rajan says: Back in my school days, I've seen a fair share of bullying and people not believing in me. Every time someone didn't believe in me or looked down upon me, my self belief and my inner voice would silence those noises, reminding me of my dreams and how much I wanted to achieve them . We've met so many people who've felt the same way and with this song, we hope to tell everyone to never let someone decide your worth. Go, catch those dreams.

As a band, what are some of the challenges you face?

Challenges are a part of any artist’s journey. We’ve had our share, and will continue to do so I’m sure. It’s a natural progression for artists from being challenged to prove themselves to begin with, to being challenged to manage expectations, and being continually challenged to prove themselves again and again. But this is the power of drive and passion, that these don’t feel like hurdles that knock you down. They empower you to grow.

Can you tell us something about your upcoming projects?

We have loads of new music coming out this year. And we’re also planning a brand new live set which we’re super excited about. That peppered with some exciting collaborations slated to release soon as well!
And finally, any message for all your listeners?

Always believe in yourself. Don’t let anyone take away your will to attempt something that you want to achieve.
