Sharing his thoughts on the release of his new single, Aaryan Banthia, singer and guitarist, “The melody of ‘Yeh Naina’ struck me in the spur of a moment at my birthday celebration in February 2022. I discreetly recorded the tune on my phone and began to pen its lyrics the following day itself. On completion, I went on to singing it multiple times with my acoustic guitar and I was very pleased with how it had turned out. It was in that instant, I decided to produce it. I am extremely grateful to my fans who have showered their love over every new song, and it truly inspires me to move onward and upward in the music industry.”
A first-generation musician of his family, Aaryan has set out in the music industry with big dreams drawing inspiration from the likes of Pink Flyod, Dire Straits and wants to be known as an independent musician not bound by any specific genre.
