Symphony Novel is a progressive / instrumental / experimental / post rock band from Mumbai , India. Its a five piece band . Gauri Aayer - Vocals, Rachit Sachdeva - Guitars , Vivek Khati - Guitars, Jerson Anthony - Bass, Virendra Kaith - Drums.

Their debut album ARIA has a total of six tracks. The songs are a unique blend of instrumental, progressive rock with classical Indian vocals textured over them. Its amazing how their vocalist Gauri has stylistically sung the tracks maintaining the perfect balance between Indian classical and western music.

The band logo is usually a stylized version of the band name itself. In other cases, as with Symphony Novel, a motif is included.This motif provides a distinct identity which compliments the simple but eloquent serif font. In keeping with the sound and lyrical content,the motif has an edgy yet mystical persona.It is designed from the mathematical symbol of infinity or rather half of the whole. As it is fashioned from the infinity symbol, the final form is that of a photograph capturing the ever evolving, mutating nature of events.

The first track 'Chant' is comprised of two slokas or mantras addressing the Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Shiva respectively.This track is quite the contrast to other more darker tracks like 'Infirmity' and 'The lake'.

The album art is a piece depicting a man bowing down atop an alter of rock. It is comprised of simple strokes placed closely together to create a sense of intricacy and tension to personify principles of surrender and grace which is very much in keeping of the first track 'Chant. « hide
