Thee by Encore

I got an email from a Tamil pop band Encore last week. They introduced themselves in the email as "... a group of five engineering students who wanted to make a difference in the non-existent Tamil pop scene. The result- Thee, an album with technicians like Sivamani, Keith Peters etc... among the credits."

They have a website with teasers from a few songs on the album. I've never listened to any non-film Tamil album so far but gave this a shot and was pretty impressed. There is good variety in the songs and some great orchestration. Like YSR, they manage to slip in some unexpected familiar tunes in the middle of the songs. I really liked the title number, which has great beats, nice lyrics and plays like one of those inspirational numbers. Any of our heroes could sing it while facing the camera :-)

Suresh, who has listened to the full album, has a more detailed review here. Looks like he's giving it a big thumbs up.
