NYC-based, India-hailing singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sid Seth drops melodic number “Hopeless War,” delving into relatable back and forth arguments and blame shifting that leaves us wondering about the path forward.
Led by Seth’s trademark blend of soul and pop sensibilities infused with Bollywood, Hindustani Folk, and Indian classical music influences, the track manages to be thoughtful and upbeat simultaneously as he weaves a cathartic sonic experience.
Speaking of the message behind the track, he says, ""Hopeless War," comes from a classic situation: a battle of 'you did this, I did that.' Both parties go crazy, and after a certain point in the argument, it doesn’t even make sense anymore. Someone takes the lead and is like, 'Okay, let’s just end this, it’s pointless.' It’s that scene. And after all that, it leaves you with silence and the question lingering 'where do we go now?'”
Inspired by his own experiences, “Hopeless War,” which Seth describes as “a conversation,” is an honest and authentic number rooted in a poignant message and cinematic soundscape that allows us to immerse and enjoy ourselves fully.
A rising talent who has crafted a unique artistry spanning various genres and styles from the likes of The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Boney M and Abba to Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Ella Fitzgerald alongside a generous influence of Bollywood and Indian classical, Seth has cemented his space in music with a soulful, rhythmic musicality that has us reaching for the replay button on loop.
