Level Rode answers our rapid-fire round.
What is the best thing about what you do?
Timothy Franklyn (vocalist): As a band, we love to tell stories of hope and encouragement through our music in an increasingly divisive society and broken world.
What is music to you?
As a band, we believe that music is the language of our soul and of our emotions. We use music to connect with our audiences at an emotional level and move them to be more involved in civil society.
What are you working on currently?
We are currently working on producing new material and lining up gigs in university campuses all around the country.
Any new album/single lined up for release?
We are in the production phase for the music video for our single, Brand New.
How would you explain music to a child?
Benjamin Ebenezer (lead guitarist):
Only by playing music will they understand. Nothing like playing an upbeat funny song to kids and making them smile (and dance)!
One fictional character that you would like to see come to life is?
Kevin Vineeth (bassist): Mr Incredible (from the Incredibles) I think deep down inside, we all resent a mundane suburban lifestyle and white-collar job, and would like to do something more meaningful. Also we can wear tights and get away with it!
What would you do if you had the power of invisibility?
Joslin Julius (acoustic guitar/vocals): Free Travel!
A meal you can have for the rest of your life?
Steve Rajan (keyboards): Biryani Rice or Kushka (no meat!).
A song lyric that you never really understood?
Roshan Jayakumar (drums): I have a pen, I have pineapple, uh! Pineapple Pen! Really?
Your biggest pet peeve?
Heinzsten Peter (electric guitar): Traffic in Bangalore. People not following traffic rules. Bangalore “roads are not level”
