Kolkata-based rap-rock band Underground Authority never fails to surprise as they are all set for Surprise Saturdays! They will be doing a music video series on their YouTube channel and the first one is a banger! Baaki Baatein Peene Baad-Gulaabo-Don’t Let Me Down cover mash-up was released on their official YouTube channel on 25 November 2017.
The first edition of Surprise Saturdays feature a mash-up of Badshah and Arjun Kanungo’s popular track Baaki Baatein Peene Baad, Gulaabo from the movie Shaandaar (Originally sung by Vishal Dadlani and Anusha Mani), and Don’t Let Me Down (The Chainsmokers featuring Daya).
Always known to be out of the box and innovative, the band is notable for being very vocal about their point of views and protesting things that are wrong. UA frontman EPR says, “We really try to keep it very organic and freestyle when we are going to the studios or up on stage. We have a long wish list of our fans, and we would try to create something which makes them happy. All we can say is, we are going to spend more time in the studios now, so watch out!”
Why Surprise Saturdays?
The band says on the programme:
Everywhere we go, our young fans love listening to our renditions of Bollywood and international covers. But, when we looked at it, we realised that we don’t have enough stuff to cater to those among our 2.35lac+ Facebook fans who may not have seen us perform live. Hence, we decided to come up with Surprise Saturdays, our fortnightly initiative to connect to our distant fans through our YouTube channel. We are going to surprise everyone with music videos of songs that our fans want us to do, and we promise to try and keep everyone’s request.
