GNTC releases debut album at Hard Rock Café

GANGTOK, 08 Aug: Girish and The Chronicles [GNTC] launched their debut album titled 'Back on Earth' on Thursday at the Hard Rock Café in Mumbai. The band has also become the first from Sikkim to be featured on an international music channel.
Released under the record label giant Universal, the album features 14 songs with a very Hard Rock / Classic Heavy Metal sound for most songs, along with a contrasting ballad and acoustic sound for the remaining, informs a press release.
The 14th track is actually an older version of “Golden Crown”, which the band decided to include since it was already quite popular.
The album will be available at music stores around the country and overseas and also in several other digital platforms and online sources such as iTunes, Flipkart, etc. This will be followed by an all India Hard Rock Café tour and the album promo all-India tour, the release informs.
GNTC’s first official music video for the song 'Angel' is regularly being aired on the international music channel VH1 since 29 July 2014. The song was the band’s first ever recorded song which was recorded back in 2009.
The songs have been composed and written by lead vocalist Girish Pradhan along with composition and music arrangement by Yogesh Pradhan.
The song was initially released as a single sponsored by Café Live & Loud, Gangtok, and was also featured in TNT magazine’s compilation album. The song was also available on the internet sites such as reverbnation, sound cloud, youtube etc., which gave the band its first recognition.
The music video has been directed and shot by Vikram Yoganand of Smart Screen Productions. Since the song is about how people wish and pray to the various entities of hope such as the universe, God, shooting stars, angels etc. to just be remembered and to fulfill their dreams, the story in the video is about a girl who dreams of becoming an actor and how she struggles and faces the hardships in life to finally make it happen.
The lead character in the video has been played by Karishma Pradhan (actor/model) hailing from Gangtok, Sikkim.
