mosaic-thoughts-darjeelingMosaic Thoughts

Introducing Mosaic Thoughts, a Nepali alternative/experimental rock band from Darjeeling set to release of their new video called Aash on 23rd February 2019. Aash, meaning hope in Nepali, talks about desires and dreams, in the face of ugly betrayals and negativity.

About the Song

As a member of the band says “Everyone of us knows the feeling of betrayal, abandonment, and have experienced shattering life events. However, some amongst us have this unflinching hope and that the very people who betray will come back to pull us out of our miseries. Many times, despite knowing that hope will never be realized, they refuse to move on and are drowned in their own delusions.” The song Aash speaks wisdom to those who are living in such fake dreams, without realizing their worth. The song wants to convey the message that we are special, worthy of a better life above such misplaced hope and sadness.

About the Band

Formed sometime in the middle of 2018, Mosaic Thoughts is a four-member band based in Darjeeling. As a Nepali Alternative Rock band, their music tells stories about the reality of existence, depravity, exploitation, and mistreatment of human lives.

Though their original compositions, the band is focussed on leaving a strong mark on Nepali music scene. They strongly believe in creating music and lyrical content that stands out from their contemporaries. Their content is themed around social causes like Human Rights, Women Equality, Exploitation, Depression, Anxiety, Racism, Caste discrimination, the life of an orphan, depravity of love, Addiction, Child labour, and Human Trafficking. They plan to release an album 9r EP record by the end of this year. We mostly write about different aspects of life, and our goal is to reach each and everyone out there, who have been victims of different negative cause/reality; to motivate and inspire them to do better in life.

We love experimenting a lot with different genres of music. We try our level best to give people different flavours of music, keeping our own signature style safe. We also try fusion music with different variations of Alternative rock, Ballad rock, Progressive rock, and Experimental rock. A tinge of classical voice is mixed somewhere in our songs, to give it a unique flavour to our music and to increase the depth of our music.
