Chandannagar, July 26: Stephen Daze, an independent artist from Chandannagar (a small French town in West Bengal) has announced his debut album “Bideshi Foring”.
Bideshi Foring is an Indie Bong Pop Record with a new flavor, disruptive to the traditional music culture in Bengal. Flying through the influence of ‘Foreign’ genres like RnB, Electronic Pop, and World Music, Bideshi Foring means ‘Foreign Dragonfly’ in Bengali.
The album consists of nine songs that revolve around the story of love, blind trust to realization, blame games, suffocation, addiction, separation, and nostalgia. The album is an ode to the emotional journey one goes through when surviving a toxic relationship.
Stephen also released a preview single, “Thikana”, during the month of Valentine, 2021, marking the infant stage of the said love story. Bideshi Foring refers to the person who cannot keep their feet on the ground; a free spirit who cannot stick to the idea of being together forever and is lost in the eternal swipes of the modern dating pool.
Bideshi Foring is a sonically different treatment to the ears, it experiments with dream pop and trap music, which is fairly new to Bengali music altogether.
Bideshi Foring is now released and available for streaming on youtube: https://youtu.be/bv_v8giOY58
Will “Bideshi Foring” influence more Indie Bong Pop Music and be recognized?
