I suppose it is easy to avoid thinking of India as a country that might need an American style rock band yet such things exist with Mumbai’s InRegalia being the proof. “A New Horizon” is the name of their four song EP and, if you did not know their country of origin, you could quite easily believe that InRegalia were a product of the good old US of A.
The four songs on this EP are a model of conventionality with melody much to the fore and very much in the style of eighties rock music. That’s no bad thing as singer Peter Abraham is more than capable of carrying out the duties expected of a frontman of such a band of such times and, with the pace duly picked up, the rest of the band provide able support.
As I said before, this a straight down the line collection of rock songs with only “Lalitha” attempting the trick of pulling in some Eastern influences and then merging them successfully that muscular all American sound.
The cynical amongst you may wonder if American cultural imperialism is a good thing in wide world of music but there is no doubting that InRegalia are a proficient rock band.
