Insomnia-The True South Pointers...

Insomnia :

Think about sleep and being awake in longing for sleep. Symbolically, they represent the states of ‘rest and unrest’ or ‘peace and disturbance’. In our lives, everyday is an endless disturbing struggle for existence, living, life…this state of unrest that we all live in, is what we call INSOMNIA. It is our search, as a band, to find answers and pave ways out of this unrest to that state of peace and serenity. It is our intention to lead all of us to that Promised Land.

‘Visionary Rock’: Rock music with a vision; music that makes you think; music that makes sense. In our self-composed music, we would not like to place ourselves in any rigid genre, as we work with many kinds of sounds and arrangements but the closest description would be nu-age alternative rave rock . There is an emphasis on lyrical content. We draw inspiration from classic hard rock, art music, psychedelia, electronica, new age, blues, etc.

As we believe ‘music is not only classical but also massical’, we perform our stage shows in vast array of musical genres covering popular songs from pop to rock to dance to psychedelia. We do this in both English and Bangla. However, we are best at our own music.

Along with stage performances and concerts, we also do theatre sound-scaping and background scoring for films and serials.
