The revamped version of Pelican Shuffles with a 3 piece combination started in Oct 2016 when singer/songwriter Varun called up drummer Zeeshan and Bassist Shubamoy for a jamming session. Fueled by a mutual interest in making original music, the three began recording and practicing original material in local pads. ‘It became clear right away that we had something going on here. From the first jam itself, we clicked and we knew the time was just right to bring back original music to the forefront.’” said Zeeshan


The band soon wrote 15 originals in a span of 3 months, influenced by a range of bands from U2 to RHCP, Beatles to Arctic Monkeys. “We’re gonna make it loud” said Shubamoy. Within 3 days of releasing their teaser video of the song “Walk the Line” the video touched 1200 views. “The song is quite commendable”, said Durjoy, founder of the Friday Night Originals. “Amazing riff”, said Rohan Ganguli, the guitarist of Big Family.

The band is all set to play live now with a complete original set list, “We just want to get out there and play at this point,’ says Zeeshan. “‘With over 15 original songs in our belt, we’re ready to get back to what it’s all about: rockin’ the house!’" says Varun.
