Rohan Chaudhary Keeps It Smooth On New Single

We’ve got another buttery pop crooner on our hands

Delhi’s Rohan Chaudhary just put out his debut in September; his single ‘Days With Her’ is part of the EP he’s following it up with. There are some pretty good signs here. Smooth and comfortable vocals (in range and tone), some snappy clean guitars, good melodies and very nice production. It seems like he very deliberately tries to stay on the more light and pleasant side of the spectrum, choosing a more airy, relaxed vibe over the more grounded variety of this mid-tempo and laid-back but upbeat kind of pop. It’s a lot like another artist whose recorded music is very much in the more traditional and accessible space, and that artist happens to be Rohan’s big inspiration. That checks out.

It’s John Mayer, by the way, and you can hear that very studied air of calmness on ‘Days With Her’. First of all, the song is a shade over two minutes long, so it’s not like there’s a lot of time for big changes, transitions or switch-ups. Even if there was time, that spirit of surprise is absolutely not what Rohan goes for. He stays in a quiet, very comfortable range even on the chorus. He follows his hook with a groovy-as-hell second verse with the smoothest fills and melodic touches you’ll hear. There are some sax parts throughout the song that do the job of lifting things up. A little solo precedes a little spoken outro. ‘Days With Her’ is a story of little, relatively low-key sonic decisions that combine to form a very cool and collected listen.
