Rock band Agnee is looking to take its fan connect to the next level. As a part of the contest, Create With Agnee, organised with Mirchi, the band will involve their followers in their music-making process.
This first radio musical reality contest, will invite participants from all over the country and the winners will perform live with Agnee. They will also feature as playback singers in the forthcoming Bollywood movie, Gulaab Gang, which marks the band’s debut as music directors.
"Gone are the days of celebrities not being approachable. We like being friends with people who like our music," says Mohan, the vocalist. "We’re giving them an opportunity to be with us on stage as well as in the recording studio. The dynamics of each are very different from the other."
Soumik Sen’s movie that Agnee will be making music for, is about a gang of pink saree-clad women who fight crime in Uttar Pradesh. The film is due to release somtime late next year. "The sound of the film is very UP folk, mixed with elements of contemporary rock and grunge, which is our signature sound," says Mohan, reminiscent of the band’s hit song Sadho Re.
The national finals of the Create With Agnee contest will be held in Pune today. The live concert will see four male and four female finalists perform with the band.
