Spawning all the way from Bombay (India), the debut album, “One Last Monsoon,” was written & performed entirely by songwriter David Abraham, and primarily recorded in his bedroom – an apt environment for an album that plays like a love letter to the Indie & Alternative genres, and the artists/bands that allow these genres to thrive.
The Koniac Net has been compared to artists such as the Stills, Smashing Pumpkins, Toadies, Death Cab For Cutie, Matt Pond PA, Marcy Playground, Helmet & the Deftones. The band’s music pays tribute to the genres these artists represent.
Songs from “One Last Monsoon” have already gained airplay on over 145 radio stations across 32 countries. Upon receiving numerous requests to tour internationally, the Koniac Net transformed from a one-man-project to a 5-piece band in June of 2012.
In February of 2014, the band released their 1st Ep, “Abiogenesis,” in which all 5 members contributed to the writing process.
David Abraham – Vocals + Guitar
Jason D’Souza – Guitar + Backing Vocals (+ was the mixing engineer on the album)
Aaron Dmello – Guitar + Backing Vocals
Adil Kurwa – Bass (+ was guest bass player on the song “Divine Submersion”)
Karun Kannampilly – Drums
Meaning behind the title “THE KONIAC NET”:
I had this name for one of my mix cds I made (when cds were still used). It represents that point in your life (that can happen at any given moment) where you are presented with 2 paths, and even though “Path A,” at the time, looks better than the other, for reasons unknown, you are FORCED to take the less appealing “Path B”.
Later in life you realise that “Path B” has turned out to be the FAR more fruitful & lucrative trail, while the more appealing choice was in fact a metaphorical net (similar to that of an Angler Fish’s protruding fleshy light). It’s a name that’s been with me for over a decade. It also precipitated during a time in my life where I realised how comforting scotch, whiskey, cognac & Southern Comfort were at trying times.
Hence “the koniac net” – a paradoxical/oxymoronic optimistic & cynical representation of how life’s surprises/plans for you have reason & purpose, and are justified at random points of time in our lives, even though we might not be aware of it.
