We are all quite familiar with the underground music scene of Pakistan which is where aspiring musicians are born. The underground musicians are those who jam in their own personalized places, make their own songs and perform at gigs to get a limelight. At a lot of incidences, they do get a shine with underground hits but a lot of them go unnoticed even with some fine music hits.

Secondly, ‘Error the band is a risk-taking band, we like to experiment with music and try to bring out something never heard before.’

On being asked about what difficulties they faced to establish themselves a band, they replied that every step was a journey for them since every other step had hurdles. ‘It was a struggle to stamp ourselves as a rock band and greater struggle was finding event organizers and other collaborators who wound recognize us.’
