(Acoustic Set) The F16s
The F16s are an alternative band hailing from the port city of Chennai, India. Their music, echoes the melancholia that grapples with the mundanity of everyday life in a town that serves very little outside of itself. Lyrically driven, the sound of the band rests in an arc that also includes acts like LCD Soundsystem, Julian Casablancas and the Voidz and The Horrors; beat-driven yet innately melodic. The band already has a couple of prior releases attached to them: a 6-song EP released in 2013 called Kaleidoscope, and a 2-track recorded in Brooklyn, New York called Nobody's Gonna Wait. The band also has now released their debut full-length album, Triggerpunkte, a nine-song offering that was recorded in Chennai and Mumbai for over a year.Facebook
