The Loft have just hit the industry with their debut live cover of the Gurdas Mann’s all time classic, Sajna Ve Sajna. The cover, filmed and recorded at home, has got many people talking including some of the industry’s finest artists. Their take of the cover showcases a slice of their versatility with a fresh, new and vibrant composition. Opening with mellow arrangement and then twisting the groove into a vibe which can only be described as ‘Desi Jazz’.
Vejay (Drums) said ‘Performing a cover of a timeless classic such as Gurdas Mann’s Sajna Ve Sajna was always going to be risky. But the response we’ve had from it has been amazing! We didn’t think we’d have such a good reaction. The support has been great. The track is just a sample of numerous items we are working on. We’re looking to release more live session videos and hopefully, before the end of the year, an EP. We’d like to thank those who are supporting us and hope for your continual support as more songs are released’.
All band members; Davz (Vocals), Vejay (Drums), Sanjeev (Bass), Luke (Keys), Andy (Tabla) and Stephan (Guitar) were introduced to music at a very young age. Individually, they have many years of experience under their belts but as a band they have just begun their musical career. Being friends before forming the band, they are all passionate about live music and love performing. Andy said, ‘We have learnt so much over the last year from our performances and rehearsals.
We always appreciate constructive feedback and always try to improve on that feedback’.
