Thermal and a Quarter


About: Thermal and a Quarter

TAAQ is a path-breaking band from Bangalore, India. TAAQ describes its music as Bangalore Rock; a sound as unique and layered as the fast-growing city of its birth. Imagine a Phish-meets- Steely Dan-via-Mahavishnu-Orchestra vibe: the TAAQ sound is all that and more.  Through the last 14 years, TAAQ has played all over India, completed tours in the United Kingdom, West Asia and South-East Asia, released five studio albums, supported acts like Deep Purple and Jethro Tull, and won awards for individual musicianship as well as overall contribution to Indian Rock.

Live, TAAQ delivers an unforgettable, immersive musical experience. From packed clubs to arena-size venues, TAAQs stellar musicianship, hard-hitting lyrics, and fluid improvised style make every gig unique.

Press:

“Songs such as Sunset Man, Without Wings and the excellent Look at Me rest on a genre-defying, impossibly funky, but irrefutably Indian rhythm section which rocked in 5/4 time all night. Let's see the Red Hot Chili Peppers try that…” - Stuart Morrison, The Herald, UK

“Thermal And A Quarter ventures far from the straight-ahead four-beat patterns of American music… all sorts of tricky syncopations…” - Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, National Public Radio (All Things Considered), USA

“It’s about time the West has something to listen to from India that isn’t born in Bollywood… I could see this band blowing minds at Bonaroo or the Newport Jazz Festival. Wherever they end up playing, they are sure to catch the attention of anyone who has an ear for great music.” - Ed Douglas, President, Brash Music, Atlanta

“The material is excellent – and the band can obviously cut it live” - Art Edelstein, Producer, Festival Productions, New York

“The new record is an eminently listenable effort, with sharp, precise instrumentation, great vocal harmonies and nice hooks. If one was to make comparisons, Steely Dan would come up, with slight detours into Phish territory. It’s also beautifully put together…” - Time Out Magazine, Delhi, on This Is It

“It’s not just jamming or polishing of songs that TAAQ concentrated on. They’ve also set a high bar for themselves when it came to the actual production.” - Rolling Stone Magazine

“With influences ranging from jazz to rock to funk, (Bruce Lee) Mani’s playing is instantly recognizable: sinuous wah-wah riffs, funky rhythms and staccato solos.”  - Rolling Stone Magazine – on Bruce Lee Mani, featured as one of ‘India’s Best Axemen’

“…oodles of talent; TAAQ’s music is unique and refreshing” - Emirates Today, Dubai, UAE

 “At the heart of the (TAAQ) enterprise is the creation of songs that resonate with the mood of contemporary India” - The Times of India, Bangalore
