The cult Kerala band, Thaikkudam Bridge, shot to fame with their renditions of old Malayalam film songs, in a medley titled Nostalgia on the Music Mojo show on Kappa TV on YouTube. Following this, they showed their versatility with a surprising cover of Metallica's 1992 hit, Nothing Else Matters as well as covers of Hindi film songs. To show they were not just a cover band, they released originals, along with the infectious Fish Rock which remains a concert favourite.The band's music seamlessly blends rock, reggae, Hindustani and Carnatic music, producing some profound, grounded melodies that seem even bigger when they perform live. With larger-than-life arrangements, their finely crafted sets employ powerful vocals, violin and guitar tunes make you watch them in awe in spite their performance being in a language most of the audience doesn't understand - Malayalam.
