Mr. GnG, a prog rock/hard rock band, hailing from France and India, released their second single, “Within” taken from their upcoming EP titled ‘EPonymous’. Their debut single titled “Goodbye, Mr. GnG” was featured by Rolling Stone India as well as BraveWords.
Inspired by the singer’s struggles with his still undiagnosed nerve disease, Mr. GnG’s new song “Within” manages to pull on listeners’ heartstrings. The song encompasses all the hallmarks of a classic rock ballad with the band’s trademark ‘twists’ like unique rhythmic patterns and an avant-garde instrumental outro (as heard in the extended track on streaming platforms).

Describing their music as ‘Tenacious progressive rock with a call-back to the ’80s’, Mr. GnG is determined to make a mark on the prog landscape. Mr. GnG is an international progressive rock/hard rock band based in India and France.
The band started in June 2021 as a two-piece outfit comprising Ishan Dave on vocals/guitars/bass and Abhilash Sreekumar on backing vocals/keyboards/drums. Having played together in college in the now-defunct band ‘Realm of Shadows’, they were very familiar with each other’s musical tastes and performance styles. They began a spontaneous online collaboration in the wake of the COVID Lockdown in 2021 – this eventually blossomed into their debut EP, ‘EPonymous’.
The duo firmly believes they were born 15 years too late as their musical and lifestyle preferences surround 80’s aesthetics such as Guitars, Girls, Gold, Godzilla, George Michael, and all the Glory that comes with God and the rockstar deal. The name “Mr. GnG” personifies these ideals as influences and future goals. While being greatly influenced by 80’s aesthetics, the band still manages to sound fresh and resonate with modern rock/metal fans. Fans should keep an eye on Mr. GnG’s upcoming release, EPonymous, as well as their fiery ambitions of taking on the rock scene by storm.
“Within” was recorded by Daidipya Sheth at Compassbox Studios in India and was mixed and mastered by Thejus Nair at Eleven Gauge Recordings.
