British Indian rock artist Pryti has released her new single, “Teardrops”, taken from her forthcoming album, Searching for Now Lost in Again, out November 11th via her own Welcome To Pariahville Records. The new track “is about dealing with things you can’t change,” says Pryti, “feeling lost and letting it out, letting the Teardops fall. I’m Hindu and it was really nice to incorporate my faith into this song. Shani is Saturn the taskmaster who tests you and judges you on your actions and Shiva is the Hindu God.”
Searching for Now Lost in Again also features previously released singles “Wasteland”- about saying goodbye to habits and thinking patterns or people that aren’t good for you, “Archive” which deals with the things you hide from your own self and “Warning Sign” – a track that says goodbye to toxic relationships which was written as the #MeToo movement was burgeoning. Listen to the latest track now below.
Pryti has been obsessed with music for as long as she can remember, singing from the time she learned to speak, and playing piano from a very early age. But it was in her teens when she discovered her calling. “Linkin Park’s album Hybrid Theory is what got me into metal,” she shares, “I was 15 years old and didn’t fit in, and they opened the door to a world of metal and rock music.” It wasn’t long before she picked up guitar and started playing bass too. In university she pursued a degree in Music and Media Management, and would use those skills to start her own independent label. “I love the business side” she shares, “I wanted to start my own label and be in charge of my career since learning about the music industry.”
Whilst Pryti’s earlier releases fully embraced the doom and heaviness of metal, her latest songs recorded with longtime producer Justin Hill (Sikth, Young Guns, Heart of a Coward), draw from that world while also incorporating more aesthetics from alternative pop, indie and electronica. “When I was recording my new music this past year,” she says, “it finally felt like something was changing. I have worked really hard to become a better vocalist, musician and songwriter. I really pushed myself to the point where it finally felt like I was progressing.”
