Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Tushar Singh from The Winter Gypsy

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Fresh from playing in Melbourne and Adelaide, The Winter Gypsy have been busy bees lately. Tushar Singh from the band shares some of their favourite tunes with us. Also, scroll down below to catch their video for 'Bojke'.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Thriller' - Michael Jackson. I remember this song so much because of the video clip. When I was around 4 years old, I got so scared from the video clip. I will never ever forget this song. Great song though. 

Also, The Mortal Kombat theme song. Yes, I was in love with the original Mortal Kombat movie when I was younger. I would always Hum the tune and then I'd shout ' MORTALLL KOMBAAAT'. My parents hated it. 

What song is your ultimate party track?
'Take On Me' - a-ha. For some reason, this song will always get me grooving. What a track. I blame my sister for playing it to me when I was younger. 

What song do you listen to before you jump on stage?
This is a hard one because I tend to listen to a lot of music. I guess it just depends on what I'm feeling on the day; though, as a band, we've recently been playing local Adelaide bands before our shows. Gives us a strange but comforting hype for the night ahead.

What song would you make your theme song?
Anything from Foo Fighters or Red Hot Chili Peppers. First two bands I ever got into, and will never stop loving them. 

What song reminds you of your first heartbreak?
Death Cab For Cutie - 'Transatlanticism'. Thank you, Death Cab, for this entire album and helping me write songs that didn't suck as much. Will always love these guys. 

What do you have on repeat right now?
'What Once Was' - Her's. Heard them on a YouTube channel called, Majestic Casual. Can't get enough of these two indie swooners. 

What song is your guilty pleasure?
'Lump Sum' - Bon Iver. You can never play too much Bon Iver. He's definitely shaped the way I write music.
