Folk-rock band Swarathma’s new music video is deep, funny and a total hoot.
Its that time of the year when exam fever reaches an all time high with parents pressurizing their kids like there is no tomorrow. To provide comic relief, Swarathma has released a new song that is a satirical take on parental pressures on children. We’re really hoping this makes people think and speak on the subject of parental expectation and the isolation that children go through.
Titled ‘Beta Sweater Pehno’ the song features band members in school uniforms going through the motions of student life with a sense of comic melancholy. Watch it, enjoy it and remember to use the hash tag #ReleaseThePressure when you share it.
Swarathma is one of India’s top folk-rock bands that has released two full-length studio albums and been on seven international tours of countries like UK, Australia, HK, Singapore and Morocco. Known for their electric live act, their songs are often rooted in the social and political issues that affect society. Their music is sensitive without being preachy. They have been on the Rolling Stone List of Hottest Indian bands and have won the JD Indian Rock Awards on several occasions. They are a favorite fixture at many music festivals such as NH7 Weekender and Storm Festival. They’ve jammed at airports, the metro too and have been on Unplugged as well.
