Indian-American musician Saahil Bhargava drops enthralling offering “Ascent,” continuing to establish his alt-rock sensibilities through soaring vocals and smooth riffs. Inspired equally by Greek mythology and gaming, the track is an innovative look into team dynamics.
Drawn from the Daedalus/Icarus myth, the rising singer explores the idea of a duo with very different mindsets, placing a cautious planner against reckless daredevil. It also brings to life a relatable scenario for gamers rooted in teamwork.
This dualistic element is a trademark for Bhargava, whose enthusiasm for gaming weaves its way into his power-packed music. He explains the concept of the track as being from the planner or Daedalus’ perspective, saying, “While the first player is being cautious and making sure the team is staying together with a plan, the second player just rushes out and starts attacking, getting himself killed and screwing over his partner in the process.”
Having received acclaim for his five-track debut EP, and establishing himself an exciting rock talent to keep your eyes and ears peeled for, Saahil Bhargava delivers yet another memorable production with “Ascent,” leaving us in anticipation for more music from him.
