“Yaatra” is a coming of age story of The Midnight Rider’s journey from a cover music project to a band producing its own album. After almost a decade of playing hundreds of shows together, Yaatra is our attempt at bringing all of our musical influences into the Nepali music scene. Starting from our early days of playing hard rock and metal with different bands and then mellowing down to some classic rock and blues till now, we’ve played all genres in between from 80s bubblegum pop to blues standards and what not. Our influences can be noticed in all the tracks on “Yaatra” and hopefully more originals in the days to come.
The journey has been really long so far with many ups and downs and in the process, we’ve been blessed with the best of friends and supporters without whom, the album would never have been completed. We’d like to thank everyone for being a part of this roller coaster journey with the Midnight Riders. “Yaatra” is dedicated to you all.
