Dotty View: Man Goes Human

I’m about to introduce you to a band who are stretching their boundaries, pushing themselves to the limit and producing truly innovative, progressive music.

I’d love to be able to tell you a ton of information about them, but all I know is that they hail from Delhi, India, and are singing, playing and gigging their hearts out in a bid to break into the world of music.

How they made it to little old me in a sleepy town in middle England, I don’t know, but here they are.

Man Goes Human.

They’re a mysterious lot – I don’t know which member of the band does what, and they’ve only shared two of their songs with the internet world!

First up, Leave Me or Love Me is completely experimental – a mix of prog rock guitar, jazz like bass and drums, and bizarre sections of sensual vs shouty vocals interspersed with strange sound effects. Quite an odd tune – I’m not keen on the shouty singing, but nevertheless it’s left me interested in hearing more!

The band have now released their first single, Fading:

This is an entirely more mature song, with much improved vocals (the female vocal is absolutely superb – dreamy!) and a format which works musically. It all fits in a pleasing way, and I can see now where they want to go, rather than hearing a mish-mash of different styles. Don’t get me wrong, experimenting is no bad thing, I simply prefer when mixed genres slot in well with each other without the need for extra musical glue.

Man Goes Human are accessible as a band, having a pretty heavy online presence. I’m hoping they’ll make more of their music available to listen to, and that they won’t leave it too long before releasing an EP.
