Pulling inspiration from notable artists such as Hammock, Coldplay, This Patch of Sky and Passengers, InternalEye has his one individual sound and approach to making music. InternalEye’s new song “Sit By The River” Ft. Asha is out now!
“Creation of music is what gives me the most joy, it’s an expression and culmination of all experiences and impressions of life as it flows through me,”
“Sit By The River” Ft. Asha is a beautiful piece of musical brilliance. The stripped-down guitar intro demands to be heard despite the simplicity. Asha’s vocals bring all the more beauty and a sense of comfort and relatability. “Sit By The River” is undoubtedly something of a breath-taking musical highlight for its optimism and the sheer color and engaging nature of its progression. It feels like a moment of potential brightness amidst an ocean of darkness. It’s utterly refreshing to know that there are producers, composers, and creatives out there, taking the time and focusing intently on crafting audio experiences that can affect a listener in such a profound way.

Welcome to BuzzMusic InternalEye! We're completely captivated by your sound--you have such a strong and warming presence throughout your tracks. Can you tell us more about your intentions when you first began to curate your recent release "Sit By The River”?
I’m glad that you found a connect with my sound. A warm presence regardless of the emotions I’m exploring is exactly what I’m going for, so thanks for recognising that.
I’m essentially an instrumentalist and producer so I tend to compose instrumental music but their are times when a few lines and a melodic structure come to me and haunts me endlessly. This is exactly what happened with “Sit by the River”, so I had to put it down and begin production. At first, I wanted to sing it myself but quickly realised that it’s not going to cut it. My creative expression comes from layering different tones and producing a track. I decided to search for a voice that could make this track come alive. Thankfully, I found Asha and I’m so happy with the way this song shaped up.
You've had such a strong love and passion for music at such a young age! How do you think you and your music have grown since you first started producing, versus now?
I started out playing drums for my school band. Like a lot of teenagers, I was heavily into rock music. It wasn’t too long before I found my love for the guitar. Music helped me deal with an unstable home environment and my introverted nature. I realised I had found my best friend, my life long companion in music. After playing professionally with a rock band, that was quite well-known in the local circuit, I decided to go and study audio engineering and explore other aspects of the music industry. It was during my study that I found a connect with electronic music, especially psychedelic, ambient and chill-out. I also love the subtlety and expressiveness of both Indian and Western Classical Music and the rawness of folk. So you see, there are so many aspects that inspire me to create my own signature sound.
"Sit By The River" is a beautiful song and Asha’s voice complements it perfectly. Where did you draw inspiration for this particular track?
My deepest joy comes from two things, one is music and the other is my connection with nature. The inexplicable sense of joy and wonder that I have felt walking through the forrest, hiking up the mountain and yes you guessed it… sitting by the river. It was these emotions that I tried to express while producing this song.
We know that you're a lover of integrating a variety of elements in your music. Would you ever incorporate contrasting genres into your music, or do you think it would ruin the type of sound you're attempting to reach?
I am open to experimentation and I do feel that exploring different genres is very important for any music producer. That said, as an artist one must develop a sound. It is something you connect with deeply so fooling around too much with that can make for a frustrating time in the studio. I guess what I’m trying to say is that as long as one can incorporate their sound, incorporating contrasting genres is not a bad idea.
What's the next move for you artistically? Can we expect to see future collaborations with Asha?
I have a number of unreleased works and I’m planning to release them as singles on a consistent basis from now on. I’m happy with the way my sound has shaped up, it is the closest I can get to what I’m trying to express through my music. Yes, I would love to do more tracks with Asha. I have spoken to her and sent her a couple of ideas, let’s see how it goes.
