Maddie takes a look at India's exciting new indie act, Alluri and his new track Man of Truth.
Redd Alluri is an up and coming Indian indie artist who started out writing music for Bollywood movies in his native city of Hyderabad. He is now currently based in London and Man of Truth is the first single from his forthcoming album of the same name that is released 30th September.
Man of Truth is a striking track that can be compared to Blur in some ways, with story telling lyrics and a clear alt rock feel Alluri is definitely something indie music is currently missing.
The video for Man of Truth is directed by Glaswegian newcomer Mark Kelly. Kelly has managed to create a beautifully simple video that encapsulates the moody indie style of the song. Following our story teller, who's intense phon ecall throughout the song allows the watcher to feel a connection to the story of the song, on a walk across a rather beautiful setting the video intertwines with the track remarkably well.
Whilst Alluri does have a lack of upcoming tour dates this is sure to change with the release of his album, which, if this track is anything to go by will be worth a listen.
