Indie artist Socially Altered releases his new single Mother on the 18th of May 2018 which is a vocally and emotionally driven song about the loss of his grandmother. While composing the song, Krishnendu Ghosal the solo artist behind Socially Altered has opened up about his true feelings as to the loss of his grandmother who he considered to be his first mother. "Music allows me to say and do things which I normally would keep to myself, so I thought it best to use this freedom of expression for something that's still pure and innocent in my life and would probably always be." Krishnendu has been disheartened at the loss of his grandmother and still feels the emptiness which cannot be filled by anyone else and he confesses that "This is the most honest to heart song's I have ever written and recorded so far". The single has a very mellow flowy feel to it with the use of the acoustic guitar. The bass guitar gives a more heavy mood to the song, while the keyboards give a sense of a gentle scream. The vocals is all heart and soul and the catalyst for the entire song is the bird call of a Koel which Krishnendu recorded from the window in his room in the early hours of the morning. "Some sounds and certain smell's can remind a person of a place, time or incident which took place years ago. The Koel bird call reminds me of my grandmother's house where I grew up with her being the centre of my life, so the sound of the bird call was imperative to the song."

Hacked

Socially Altered

Has your mind been HACKED ? The solo act from India, Socially Altered is thrilled to announce the release of his psychedelic rock single Hacked. A mind bender of a song that will make you question the realities that surround you. The single will be available digitally from 24th November 2017. Hacked has been written and produced by Krishnendu Ghosal, the man behind Socially Altered. The guitar, bass and vocals have been recorded by Krishnendu and he has used a software for the drums. There are no electronic sounds in the song apart from the drums. The concept and artworks have also been done by Krishnendu. He previously released a single "Limbo" in July 2017 which was the first single of a series of singles relating to the complexities of the human mind. Hacked is the second single in the series. Hacked
"Corrupted mind's from the 21st century, Look closely and you'll see, The reflection of you in me. We are all guilty." The definition of society is "a large group of people who live together in an organized way, making decisions about how to do things and sharing the work that needs to be done." As Krishnendu elaborates "People living in society are expected to behave, think and react in a certain way. Depending on a person's upbringing at the time, a person from birth is controlled, manipulated and coerced to the length that they themselves are unaware that we are programmed to follow protocols, just like a machine or let's say a computer. Our mind's have been hacked into, without our knowledge." The song has powerful hard hitting lyrics with Krishnendu's baritone holding nothing back. The style of the song takes you back to the 60's era of psychedelic rock which has inspired Krishnendu with his music. The single Hacked points out how we are victims of social programming and that our mind's are being controlled. He further adds that "Hacked is a mirror to any society in the world especially in the current time's of unrest all over the world." "The sense of reason is the key to the answer. Hidden and asleep, At the corner of your mind."

Limbo

"Is this me walking, in this dreamy world ?" "I have been suffering from a sleep disorder for quite some time now. I witness strange and vivid dreams due to this disorder. As we all are aware that a dream feels real when we are witnessing it, this particular dream was a bag of heightened mixed emotions for me. Limbo is about a rather vivid dream I had. A dream about me in a desolate place. In the dream I initially felt fear and was unsuccessfully looking for people in this awkwardly strange place, where the sky was not how we perceive and the land was not what we tread on. After searching for a while the fear seemed to fade away and even though I was lost and alone in this unknown and very strange place, I was content and surprisingly happy. It was as though I was happy because I was lost. A lost dream where the unknown was more welcoming than reality. This song is about the celebration of the complex human mind."
"Dancing my fears away, under the moon. Let loose, let's break free."

Resurgence

Socially Altered

The tracks are simply my present emotional state. If a person could explain significant parts of his/her life in 3 songs, Resurgence does that for me, atleast the first 3 decades of it and therefore it holds a lot of significance in my life. The second song is about overcoming bad memories in a person’s life, and the third song is about how false show of love by people who mattered to me changed me as a person. All the songs in Resurgence have been inspired by true events in my life. It’s me finally opening up to the world and overcoming my personal hurdles in life. It’s my recovery, revival, resurrection. It’s a therapeutic burst of energy.
