"Is there a little bit of Mumbai in Indian-origin shoegaze band Minaxi’s new album Khwab or is it more an indication of how common environments are in metropolises all over the world?"
Anurag Tagat, Rolling Stone India

This Is Just a Dream

Khwab is the debut studio album by the alternative rock band Minaxi. The sound on the album combines elements from psychedelia, shoegazing, hard rock, dream pop and sufi. Khwab draws on the themes of love, loss, freedom, faith, home, self-respect, rage, beauty, angst, nostalgia, fate, laughter, courage and dreams.

With a combination of melodies, wall-of-guitar feedback, ethereal textures and lyrics penned in English and Hindi, the album is intended to carry the listener through a sonic dream that flows from one end of the spectrum to another.
