Circle of Sound Release Anti Hero

Circle of Sound, made up of sarod player Soumik Datta and drummer Bernhard Schimpelsberger, have released their second album. Anti Hero features special guests Nitin Sawhney and Anoushka Shankar.

The release is five tracks long. It's a mix of Indian music melded with contemporary vocals and electronics. In an interview with the Independent Soumik said "I don't think there's been another album out there like it. This is not chilled-out lounge music. It is an anti-chill-out album with edge."

Included with the tracks are lyrics and some impressive artwork done by Soumik himself. According to the Circle of Sound Facebook page "The artwork carries the idea of the album. It shows the anti hero in his world, in free fall. A world with nothing to hold onto. We wanted to move away from the conventional approach of doing artwork with instruments but to offer the listener a visual gate into our music."

Download Anti Hero from www.cosmusic.tv. It is free to download, but you will need to share on Facebook or Twitter.
