The NRIs

Although the band takes its name from leader Nayan Bhula's status as an Indian who does not live in India, The NRIs are 8 diverse individuals who each bring something unique to their collective sound.

The NRIs' 5th EP, "An Echo for Each One of Us," showcases the band's willingness to push boundaries. This is their first recording with a new drummer and a permanent horn section, and the overall sound strains defiantly against the edges of the band's folk-pop categorization. It is also the first EP in the band's catalog to include 6 songs, rather than 5. The 6th song, "Like I'm Flying," was written for an independent documentary film of the same name.

Titled with a nod to the work of Hermann Hesse, the record explores the echoes and waves of human experience
