Mumbai’s Pacifist released one of the absolute banger EPs of the year in the form of the must-hear Greyscale Dreams.How often do you get to hear a hardcore band that actually makes you still want to be a better person these days? People are so cynical that it takes a lot of spirit to cut through the Godforsaken fog of modern malaise. It will take you about fifteen minutes to finish the entire EP and I hope it will move you as much as it made me feel inspired. “Double Down” at the 2 minute mark from a crazed diagonal sounding edgy hardcore riff suddenly melting into a wash of brief almost shoegaze guitar and careful cymbal work paired with poetic, youthful musings is an exhilarating thing to have reach your ears and stir the blood.

I reached out to the band’s contact and they graciously agreed to an interview about hardcore, India, the EP and their influences and goals.

Pacifist

Pacifist from India are a spectacularly energized post-hardcore band who cite Drive Like Jehu, Snapcase and La Dispute amongst their influences. I am hearing some RAtM in the incendiary vocals. The band have a very worth your time new EP called Greyscale Dreams that evokes dismay at the current alienating circumstances of human constructed social evils, a cry of unrest and powerful riffs. It would be very cool to see this band live as their electricity leaps out of the speakers and must be pretty fierce in person.

The EP artwork & booklet features strong, impactful shots that serves as a carefully constructed tapestry of city life in Mumbai in different locations & settings, shot by Abheet Anand & designed by Sanjana Bhatt of Blankfound.

Their debut EP launches digitally on the 16th of June, and the band has been working hard touring across India in support of their upcoming release.
