KAIDONTKRY is a Mumbai based artist who tries to share creations in an intimate and unpolished way. His real name is Aditya Nair. His upcoming album ‘My Bad’ is all set to be released, with every song having its own purpose. He was interested in music since he was 8 and as he grew older, he set in stone his goal to pursue music as a profession. “When I was very young, I knew precisely what I wanted to accomplish. I would wake each morning driven by a specific agenda—practicing, writing, promoting, etc. When I went to sleep at night, I reflected on what I had accomplished and always felt fulfilled. There has never been a wasted, sad, or lonely day in my life. I can’t imagine things being any other way.” He always tries to put a lot of weight on the lyrics, with reflections on humanity and feels.
As he reflects on what inspires him a lot, what always comes back as a main source of inspiration to him is the contrasts in life. No matter what it may be, the contrast of situations leads him to write about it. Song-writing wise, he says that his ideas and inspirations often come quickly and it does not take a lot to inspire him but for him, it is always about capturing the moment rather that trying to find it. He also says that he never writes a song because he has to, but he rather tries and listens to things and situations around him when he needs to. The album, ‘My Bad’, was inspired by the 90s cultures- the fashion, the anime, the cars and everything around it. It is built around the 90s romance, even though he says that he is not a romantic person in real life, the 90s romance and culture inspired him to write this album. He says that this album goes into detail while still being vague and undone.
The type of art he is into is open to interpretation and is raw. He aims for relatability and quality instead of perfection. For him, achieving perfection, might take away from the relatability of his content and the more undone his work is, the more it becomes relatable. He aims to focus on his craft first- make great music that will make people love him. His perseverance and passion towards music is truly inspiring and his vision is something larger than just your average person’s. His songs are the story of thoughts from his mind as he is growing as an artist and as a person. Different experiences that cause different emotions, situations, feelings and everything that changes were things he translated into his art. He hopes that the songs on his album can become music and messages and lyrics, that people can find themselves within the stories, and find their story within his story. His music is raw and phenomenal, all set to awe, astound and inspire. It is going to be something to look forward to when the album comes out.
