Written and conceived in India, Humeysha channels diverse influences, echoing sounds from NYC to New Delhi.

 Press quotes:
  • “A marvelously mellow kind of psych-pop, clean and sparkly like a diamond baguette, dappled with Bollywood-toned lilts.” - Noisey

  •  “Humeysha melts modal guitars and puja bells with a reverbed vocal that scans as post-Panda Bear, but with less Brian Wilson and more fodder for mantra." - Revolt

  • “Humeysha exists at a unique intersection, merging the cinematic formality of Bollywood and geometric repetition of Islamic art with dreamy guitar riffs over trance beats.” - Fanzine
