Hailing from Dimapur, the music hub of Nagaland, Trance Effect is one of the most promising fresh act in the local indie music scene of Nagaland who grew up watching their local artists and bands performing live. With just a very short while into the live music business, the indie quintet dropped off their debut single ‘Stop Pretending’ today.
Trance Effect is comprised of Iuli Yeptho, a dynamic live performer, on vocals, Temsujungba Jamir and Wati Imchen on guitars, Imnamaong Imchen on bass and Sosang on drums. Each of the band members enjoy different styles of music yet the mutual love of performing live music drew them together into forming the band. “We would describe our sound as somewhat of a melodic approach to the indie music genre. We’re all from different musical backgrounds but we all love to create beautiful melodic music. As for the band’s name, ‘Trance’ which is a more melodic offshoot from techno or house music is what drives our music even though we don’t have a DJ in the band. So, we named the band Trance Effect,” said the band.
Stop Pretending is written by Iuli Yeptho and it talks about the struggles and hardships a person faces in life. It talks about trying to stop pretending to be something one is not and to have a positive view on life. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Jam Studio 11 by Temjen Jamir, one of the best recording studio in Nagaland, Stop Pretending is now available on OK Listen, ReverbNation and YouTube and it will be up on various global digital stores like iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Saavn, Amazon Music, Gaana, Guvera & SoundCloud in a few days.
So, now that the single is online, the band is planning to shoot an official music video for the “Stop Pretending’ and start working on new stuff so that they have enough materials for an EP by the end of this year. “To be honest there are lots of great bands out there in the NE but we’d love to share the stage with Avora Records and we’d love to play in Shillong in the near future,” said Trance Effect.
We wish Trance Effect the best for their upcoming projects.
