In Conversation with SOCH the band

Published

SOCH the band, comprises of two immensely talented musicians, Adnan Dhool and Rabi Ahmed. The duo offers a unique, fresh and soulful approach to their earthy music.

Adnan Dhool at the helm, with his gritty vocals, complemented by Rabi Ahmed’s guitar rhythms. With their thought provoking lyrics, Soch takes us on a journey, hitting on to the harsh realities to the raw emotions of life. Within months of the songs release, Soch’s first ever single “Bandeya” – it received major mainstream radio airplay of which the World-wide release was done in collaboration with Indya Record and was first exclusively aired on 9x Network in INDIA and bagged #2 on ARY Musik and Oxygene and remained in the charts for over 8 weeks.

So we decided to dig deeper and ask the talent behind the band a few questions about how they got together, where they see themselves going in the future and also their experience singing for Bollywood.

1.Tell us a little about how this band was created? 

This band was created by me (Adnan Dhool) back in 2005 when I wasn’t even sure about it . A few years later in 2007, my partner Rabi Ahmed joined in and since then it’s been going wild and strong 

2. The song Avari in Ek Villain was sung by you guys, how was your experience singing for Bollywood?

 It was definitely a great experience working across the border with some of the well known names. Not only did it bring pride to us but an award too.
Being nominated for IIFA in itself is a huge privilege.

3. How did that make you feel? 

A privilege if course, see it’s the biggest award show in Asia and the world knows about it, fans all across wait for it so it was a major break and an honor for us as well.


4. How many times have you been featured in Nescafe basement? 

Twice, season 1 and season 5, and it has been a splendid experience. We feel so much pride to be part of the Pakistani Music scene especially when we are on the brink of a musical revolution.

5. What was the story behind your sensational hit Bol Hu? 

There’s isn’t any story but the thought is to connect with your Rab while going through the toughest phases of your life when you aren’t sure about things and experience a constant defeat, then you need to create your own world and see what that brings to you.

6.If you could jam with one musician, dead or alive, who would it be? 

The one and only Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab

7. Any advice for the rising stars of Pakistan?

Just stick with your own original sound instead of copying others. Originality and candid, raw emotions will be your road to success.

Who’s your best friend?
I’ve lived in so many different places and have a lot of close friends but I’m going to have to say my best friend is my brother.

What would I grab if my house was on fire?
My dog! 1000%.

What is my destination for a trip of my dreams?
Travelling is such a huge part of my life so there are really few places I want to go that I haven’t been to but top of my list right now is Japan.

When I was little what did I want to be when I grew up?
I was one of those little kids that just wanted to do everything. One month it was a vet the next it was a pilot and the next a chef. I think I just had a lot of interests and now as a I’ve grown up I think I still keep that same energy of always trying new things and taking up new hobbies. Why limit yourself to doing one thing for your entire life?
