Kicking off 2023: Arrows Releases New Pop Single, “Another Avenue” featuring Riya Duggal.
On Jan. 20, Mumbai-based, independent music group, Arrows, is started the new year with a new single, “Another Avenue.” Arrows is a collaborative project, created by the brainchild of musicians and music journalist, David Britto in 2018.
“Another Avenue” featuring singer-songwriter, Riya Duggal, articulates perfectly what it is like to deeply desire someone. It is clear that this song is about being infatuation with someone and Duggal’s vocals, the production from Jason D’Souza and the hyponotic 80’s instrumentals (bass, guitar, and drums) just adds to that.
“Do I need to spell it out for you? / What do I have to tell you? / Are you gonna know somehow? / That I’m always thinking of you.”
Lyrics from Another Avenue
These lyrics are repeated throughout the song and mixed with the upbeat bass line, composed by Britto in 2018 (his first piece of music) hit the nail on the head when it comes to the human experience of being enamored. Britto explains:
“I was finally able to finish the song in 2021 and it revolves around the theme of infatuation.”
After playing bass for Bombay blues-rockers, TheTripp, and performing throughout clubs in India, Britto started his solo career and created the collaborative project Arrows. With the creation of Arrows, Britto has invited and worked with guest vocalists.
There are many working parts of “Another Avenue” that contribute to the uniqueness of the song. The composition of music, the vocals, and the production, work toward the success of “Another Avenue.” On working with Duggal and D’Souza, Britto has shared his admiration for both artists in their respective careers.
“I’ve followed Jason’s stint in music from his time in various bands as a guitarist as well as his work as a producer for some of my favorite Indian records. I’ve known Riya for close to 10 years now and I’ve always admired her work ethic and her ability as a vocalist to make melodies sound so sweet. It is a pleasure to have worked with them both.”
