In a world saturated with cookie-cutter tunes and repetitive beats, sometimes, you stumble upon a musical gem that’s like a breath of fresh air, a sonic journey that transcends the mundane. Enter Vernon Noronha and his latest creation, “Shehron Se Duur.” This rock and roll track isn’t just another addition to your playlist; it’s an anthem for those craving an escape from the urban grind.
Vernon Noronha, a talented artist hailing from Kuwait but currently based in Mumbai, is no stranger to using music to express his experiences and emotions. Born in 1989, his journey as a musician began in earnest during his college years. What started as a means to combat boredom during accounting lectures soon evolved into a lifelong passion.
Now, with “Shehron Se Duur,” Vernon Noronha invites listeners into his world, one filled with both personal experiences and a universal desire to break free from the shackles of city life. The song reflects the frustration that many of us feel with the hustle, pollution, and overwhelming crowds of urban existence. It’s a call to escape, a search for solace beyond the city limits.
Vernon’s musical prowess shines in “Shehron Se Duur,” with a talented group of musicians backing him up. Kristofor Mendonca on drums, Leron D’Souza on electric guitar and bass, Agnelo Picardo on trumpet, and Vernon himself on acoustic guitar and keys. The mix and master by Jason D’Souza add the final touch, creating a sonic experience that’s nothing short of captivating.
The story behind the song is as intriguing as its composition. Vernon recalls how the first two lines came to him during a frustrating traffic jam in Mumbai. Those lines, “Thak Sa Gaya Hoon, Shehron Ke Dhun Se,” became the foundation of the song, which he later developed during a trip to Himachal Pradesh. It’s a testament to the fact that inspiration can strike at any moment, even in the midst of chaos.
What makes “Shehron Se Duur” even more special is its evolution. Originally intended to be an upbeat acoustic track, it took on a Beatles-meets-90s Bollywood rock and roll vibe thanks to producer Leron D’Souza’s vision. This unexpected turn makes the song even more unique and a joy to listen to.
To top it all off, Leron D’Souza has crafted a mesmerizing music video to accompany the track, set to release on August 26th, promising a visual treat to complement the auditory one.
Vernon Noronha’s musical journey is one filled with passion, creativity, and a relentless pursuit of artistic expression. With “Shehron Se Duur,” he’s not only broken free from the confines of the city but also from the conventional musical norms, creating a sound that’s refreshingly unique. So, if you’re looking for a musical escape, let Vernon Noronha take you “Shehron Se Duur,” where the city’s chaos fades into a distant memory, and the serenity of nature beckons.
