08-04-2019 12:00:00 08-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Prateek Kuhad | 6:30 pm At first glance, the cover of Prateek Kuhad's captivating new EP, 'cold/mess,' seems utterly romantic. The artwork depicts two lovers, bodies intertwined in a deep and lasting kiss, oblivious to the world around them. Take a closer look, though, and you'll see that the couple is actually underwater, drowning as their embrace drags them further and further beneath the surface. In a flash, ecstasy has turned to agony, and the love that nourished and sustained them now seals their tragic fate. "Relationships can be very dichotomous," says Kuhad. "They can be comforting and amazing and chaotic and suffocating all at once, and I wanted these songs to capture those extremes, that rollercoaster you experience between love and heartbreak." Written primarily in his native India and recorded in Nashville, 'cold/mess' is Kuhad's first collaboration with outside producers and a brilliant introduction to a breakout star ready to take the world by storm. Hailed as "one of the country's leading singer-songwriters" by Rolling Stone India, Kuhad has garnered a slew of international accolades and honors since releasing his 2015 debut LP, 'In Tokens and Charms,' an album which prompted glowing features and reviews around the world. He took home an MTV Europe Music Award, earned Indie Album of the Year honors from iTunes, was crowned Best Pop Artist at the Radio City Freedom Awards, and captured first place in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, which helped launch artists like Gotye and Passenger to global audiences. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=345957 Mercury Lounge Mercury Lounge
