What You Need it For
Ioish (pronounced eye-o-ish) was created by Vaibhav Bhutani, a prolific guitarist based in New Delhi. At its genesis, Ioish was a home studio project which later found some traction by enlisting Abhinav Chaudhary on bass and Anshul Lall on drums, both being known figures in the independent music scene. The trio indulged in creating and playing music in the ambient/post-rock genre.
Their first EP titled ‘We Move The Sky’ was released in 2016 and was supported by a 5 city nationwide tour (Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Pune and Nashik).
2018 saw the band’s second EP titled ‘Reconstructing Dreams’ in which they explored a fresh, reworked sound. Delving into the arena of electronic elements and cinematic passages to create a wondrous experience. Since then the project has moved on with Shantanu Sudarshan on drums and Vaibhav as the composer and the duo look forward to collaborating with artists from all around the world.
ioish’s sound is a mix of soulful guitars layered with atmospheric textures that are soaked in melodious grooves and riffs evoking a progressive rock feel. The combined elements make for an immersive and moody trip for the audience. One that they can immediately engage with.
Over the years ioish has played alongside bands like Tides From Nebula, I Am Waiting For You Last Summer, The Ocean Collective, Intervals and As I Lay Dying during their Indian tours.
