The band started truly small - a home studio project founded by Uddipan Sarmah & Shubham Gurung, whilst they resided in the small city of Gujarat, Ahmedabad. 2015, saw them come together with Robert Alex & Gautam Deb (Drums), and led to the launch of AWKS's first full-length release titled 'Khwaab' (meaning Dream). This moment was the start of a change in the Indian independent music circuit. With the music spreading like wildfire owing to its fresh and emotive approach, the band redefined the touring culture in India; taking their music to a multitude of cities locally and also embarking on their first ever overseas 5 city Russian Tour.
The extensive touring schedule of ‘Khwaab’ brought them their sophomore record ‘Zia’ (meaning light) – an eleven-track album birthed from the shared experiences of the band. ‘Zia’ saw the light of the day in April '17 to applause from both critics & fans alike. Expanding the sonic landscape, the band collaborated with like-minded artists on select songs, bringing India instrumentation such as Tabla, Sitar into their already diverse soundscape. This made for a unique and enthralling listen for a global audience – setting a standard for Modern Post-Rock. The band went on to extensively tour - from selling out venues on their album launch tour, to performing at premiere music festivals in India such as NH7 Weekender and VH1 Supersonic.
