It is rather rare that drummers find themselves hitting the studio the first, irrespective of musical composition, but that is rightfully the case with Banglore drummer – Pranav M Chitrabanu and his track Don’t Get So Comfy. Recorded to a plain metronome and then the surrounding music inversely produced by Akhil Kodamanchili, this song is quite the treat.
Crispy, tasteful grooves, well placed rhythmic pauses and hi-hat chokes, with flavoured fills, Pranav takes us on an amusing, yet grounded and flowy journey.
The title of the track is justified with musical development in the second half of the song, where one cannot merely put a finger on the subtly syncopated affair between the drums and backing score, which leaves you asking for more.
Akhil Kodamanachili’s audacious guitar/bass playing also to be taken notice of – merry plucks/strums to metric modulated picking, his writing, cherry on this drum out(c)ake.
