Shashwat Bulusu is a singer-songwriter and a visual artist from the pocket city Baroda. Noted by Vice as an artist who is redefining what a singer-songwriter must sound like, his music is bathed in deep nostalgia and stories, strung together with his high pitched falsetto drawls, and atmospheric, slow-burning compositions. He also a secondary project called BULLU, where he produces lo-fi experiments with songwriting process and structures, recording techniques and new instruments.
Bulusu started taking tabla classes when he was just 3 or 4 years old, which continued throughout most of his schooling, and even did vocals for a metal-punk school band. Soon after, he picked up the guitar, which led to him considering the thought of professionally pursuing music. It was during college that he started writing music for his solo project. Now, Bulusu has released three singles, which were all met with overwhelming positive response, that stem largely from stories from his childhood – of kindergarten emotions, make-believe fires, and monsters in lakes.
