Malone Bald, an Indian post-punk band from Delhi, recently released their second album “Shelter”, a self-titled album that deals with post-nationalistic and post-racial issues in India and abroad.
Malone Baldwin, a singer, lyricist and multi-instrumentalist, told Mashable that their debut album was inspired by post-modernism and postcolonialism.
“Shes a bit of a post-postmodern album,” he said.
“We are trying to look at post-colonialism and how post-structuralism came into being in the 1960s and 70s.
I guess post-political discourse, the post-fascist discourse, that is a part of it.
The post-indo-European period is when the postmodern movement emerged.”
Malone Bald released their first album “Avant-garde” in 2006.
They then went on to release “Saved by the Bell” in 2008 and “Viridian” in 2009.
Their next album “In My Head” was released in 2012 and followed in 2013 with “Savior of The Nation”.
The band released a second album in 2015, “Agnostic”, which was released on the same day as their debut.
“Aghast” was their third album and “Eternal”, their fourth album.
Malon Bald released a new album, “Naxalite”, in 2017.
Maloon Bald have a large following in India, which includes many members of the punk scene, and is one of the country’s biggest bands.
“Nail-biting, melodic, and raucous,” Malone said.
Maloney Bald, a band formed in 2008, also includes singer Farrah Fawcett, who is also a vocalist and lyricist.
Malones first song “Vidar”, is about the violence inflicted on Indians by British rule in 1871.
“It is the history of Indian soldiers who were being used by the British to break the backs of Indian farmers.
I have always thought that history is important,” Fawcetts said.
She is a member of India’s Black Metal collective, The Black Keys.
Fawcitt and Malone have also written songs about India’s recent “anti-incumbency” protests.
“I think people have felt a bit insecure and they are very self-conscious about it,” Fawces said.
Malone Baldwin’s songs deal with the past, present and future of India and its current political climate.
“When I was growing up I always felt that Indian culture was very different from any other culture in the world,” Maloney said.
They are also interested in the global arena of post-internet and postnationalism, and their music is a reference to both.
“There is a lot of postmodernism going on right now in India,” Malones said.
“The idea of postnationality is not new,” Fawca said.
In India, post-politics has a lot to do with social activism, and there is a movement to take it to the next level.
“People are trying hard to understand what is happening and the role of politics in the Indian society,” Fawcus said.
Fawcets father is Indian and his father is a musician.
She also is a singer.
Fawca, who has been performing in India for the last five years, said she wants to do her part to change Indian society.
“Post-political movements, like the Black Keys, The New York Dolls, Black Eyed Peas, all these people who are trying their best to make a change, I am really inspired by them,” Fawcot said.
