Basrur's debut album, titled Chasing Rain, will be out in February next year. It talks about the process of wooing a girl and was inspired by the musician's girlfriend. "This is the first time I've written an entire album on my own," he says. His second gig — the first one being at High Spirits in Pune — at Blue Frog in Mumbai was criticised, but Basrur says that was because of expectations.
Raina, on the other hand, started Grain to be able to make music that was different from what he was making with Midival Punditz. "With Midival Punditz, songwriting in English wasn't happening, so this will have a more international sound," he had said. His debut album Grey to Silver, too, was supposed to be released this year but hasn't been yet. He has, however, played a handful of gigs around the country, all of which have been well-received.
Like Basrur and Raina, both members of Sky Rabbit continue to be active members of their band. Both, however, launched their solo acts to release music that they had made by themselves. While Nadkarni's act SnowShoe has a sound that's very different from the sort that Sky Rabbit makes — this is a primarily instrumental, melodious and ambient sound — Savetibet's act Your Chin has definite resemblances to his band's music.
Yet, both have been received nearly as well as the other, although Savetibet's has been in the news more, including his set at the Delhi edition of Weekender. "I've been able to be a part of some really nice shows. I've written some more tunes and maybe they'll stack up into something next year," says Savetibet.
