The Shillong sibling punk rock act Dossers Urge are currently recording a couple of original songs for their untitled album at the legendary Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn (New York).
All expenses paid trip and the recording session deal came along as their prize reward on winning the 2016 Editions of Converse Road to Rubber Tracks, a nationwide contest for upcoming artists.
Formed in 2011, David Kom (Guitars/Vocals), Gideon Kom (Drums/Vocals) and Romeo Kom (Bass/Vocals) started the band inspired by the punk veterans such as Green Day & Blink 182. Their sound also draws a wave of corresponding grungy elements from the 70’s rock era of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.
In 2013, the band released their debut studio single “Jinx” recorded at Elements Indie Studio Mix and Jam Studio 11 in Dimapur, Nagaland.
“We will be shooting a complete live video footage at the upcoming 2016 NH7 Weekender Festivals in Pune and Shillong”, their frontman David Kom told us via Facebook chat on Tuesday.
‘Converse Road To Rubber Tracks’ talent hunt is an annual Global initiative campaign by the American iconic footwear brand Converse, a Subsidiary of Nike Inc, to support emerging young bands across the world by providing them access to a top-level recording studio at no cost and get them an opportunity to experience recording sessions with top producers and musicians from the music Industry.
