Kaav- Rhapsody of Rains review by IndianRockMP3



Kaav - BIGFISH-myopusradio

I first heard Kaav's eponymous EP last year, and instantly liked the sound. The instrumentals of the trio from Kochi’s Vypin Island had an almost irreverent, forget-the-rest-of-the-world-we-have-our-own-space feel about it. The songs were not rushed... read complete reviewhere.

Kaav - Rhapsody of Rains review by IMR

IMRThe unique signature Kaav leaves behind in its music is the sometimes groovy-sometimes gloomy Folk-inspired leads (on "Kaalichan", "Thee" and "Rhapsody Of Rains") thrown in together with time signatures alternating on Progressive Rock, Jazz and Blues inspired jams. This record is a real story-teller if you've got a patient ear.e .... read more ...

Kaav: The native sound

They’re from God’s Own Country, and their music is confidently fluid and earthy, almost pleasantly reminiscence of the very place. Kaav has launched its debut album, Rhapsody of Rains. “People who’ve appreciated our self titled EP, Kaav, often tell us that it sounded like an unfinished story. Rhapsody of Rains is a completion to that story,” says Syam, the guitarist...read more here

Kaav - 'Thee' review by TOP5 RECORDS

top5records

Kaav: “Thee”

Kaav, Kerala’s own three-piece instrumental band, makes me truly excited to be a music listener in India today. In an industry where Indian-influenced rock has little real identity, Syam Pai (guitars) Shabeer Ali (bass) and Arun Kumar (drums) manage to stand out. It’s not difficult to imagine the group lying around on Vypin island on a stormy Sunday afternoon, making musical magic against the background of Kerala’s heavenly atmosphere. To witness this magic, look no further than “Thee,” a single from Kaav’s latest aptly named album Raphsody of Rains (produced with the help of Indian legend Baiju Dharmajan and Cochym Records).... read more here

'Thee' single review by Score Magazine

scorelogo

Kaav probably have a more transient and contemporary take on fame, juxtaposing their growing stature as musicians against the relative obscurity of their home in Vypin Island, Kochi, Kerala. It's, after all, exactly these picturesque tumults of life by the sea that has helped shape their three man sound, already tipped for bigger and better things...read more...
