After a brief hiatus, Avash, a new band formed by Tanzir Tuhin—the former vocalist of the popular rock band Shironamhin, has released yet another new music video.

‘Bastob’, the third music video of the band, was released on the official YouTube channel of Avash on Sunday evening. Besides lending his vocal to the song, Tuhin has written and tuned the song.

Presented by the content production company, Platform, the music video was launched at a function held at the rooftop of the AJ Tower in the capital’s Karwan Bazar area.

The music video gained more than one lakh views within the first 24 hours of its release.

Avash, in association with Platform, is looking for lyrics for their first album. The band will select 10 lyrics from the submitted ones for their first album.

Avash features Suman playing the guitar, Raju at the bass, Rinku as the drummer and Shaon plays the keyboards alongside Tanzir Tuhin as the vocalist.

However, Tanzir Tuhin joined the band Shironamhin as the main vocal in 2000. The band’s first studio album titled ‘Jahajee’ was released in 2004 featuring his vocals. The singer announced his departure from Shironamhin on October 6 in 2017.

The following are excerpts from a conversation with Tanzir Tuhin:

What is the reason behind giving the title ‘Bastob’?

We always live in reality. What we want sometimes matches the reality surrounding us and sometimes not. We face different dilemmas as we grow old. We even lose our interest to live. The song tells us to get rid of such dilemmas and find out ways to move the country forward. It points out the opportunities lying before us. This song portrays that kind of reality and that’s why we call it ‘Bastob’.

Why you are looking lyrics from people for your first album?

We get so many lyrics from our listeners! Sometimes friends want us to sing their lyrics. At other times, fans send us their lyrics.  So, we have decided to make our first album by collecting lyrics from our fans. We want them to contribute to our first album.

You sang some popular songs with the band Shironamhin. Can you still sing those?

I don’t think about my past anymore. Right now, I am thinking about Avash. I want to move forward with this band. But I believe we can save and sing all the songs if audiences want.

What is your expectation from your new band?  

We want to stay together for a long time. Our main job is to sing. We want to take Bangla rock music to a new height.
