Siddharth Basrur is the owner of one of the most recognizable voices in the indie circuit these days - from Goddess Gagged to his solo stuff to his work in films and advertisements to the tons of collaborations and guest appearances he happens to do. Vishal J Singh founded the cult Amogh Symphony, and is one of the most naturally gifted metal guitar players in the country, with phenomenal chops matched by an innate ability to craft songs and transcend stylistic restrictions at ease. Naturally, the two decided to get together to form The Library, an instrumental alternative/post-rock band where they're sharing all instrumental duties.
