Genre: Experimental Rock
Avancer is a Indie / Rock band from Dimapur (Nagaland), formed in 2009. They were formed by a bunch of young and talented musicians from different backgrounds coming together with the sole purpose of letting their creative juices flow and merge into creating music which would ultimately help the band in defining their own unique sound and style.
Ever since the band took off in their sonic odyssey, not simply taking part in contests but winning them and slowly built a fan base which would ultimately pave way for the band to open for international acts such as Firehouse and traveling to Bangkok representing Nagaland at the Handshake Concert. The band has matured and refined their sounds with the release of their brand new single ‘The Trip’ which is going to take Avancer further towards discovering their quest in unraveling their musical trip.
Their song “Give it up” feat Lima Mongro (of ANTB) on the guitars was recorded by Jackto Wotsa of New Life Studio, Dimapur.
Avancer sponsored the track “Beautiful Day” by the duo Iluli Yeptho and Sanen Lemtur recorded at New Life Studio, Dimapur. The music was arranged and composed by Avancer with Lima Jepi Mongro and Atsa Lang Roths helping them out on the guitar works.
