I should like this a lot more than I do. I mean, the whole slow-burn, indie-folk-crossed-with-sitars-and-tablas thing seems almost custom-made for me. But there’s something – the use of a six-string bass, maybe? – about what these guys are doing that’s keeping me from getting totally onboard with Janani‘s music.
Still, despite the fact that they’re relatively new on the scene, Janani seems to have hit on a sound that’s resonating with quite a few people (they’re consistently charting on the ReverbNation charts for Orlando); maybe with some time they can develop what they’re doing into something that’s as interesting as the sounds in their heads. After all, Janani herself is only 16 … she’s got plenty of time to grow this project into something truly impressive.
