As steampunk music fans, one thing we get super excited about is: NEW STEAMPUNK MUSIC! And The Mutiny by UK band Sunday Driver is no exception.
Sunday Driver is known for their blend of traditional Indian and British folk music – with a little bit of circus and waltz thrown in for extra fun! We recently sat down and reviewed The Mutiny. The album’s interesting and rare use of the sitar, combined with the guitar, some fantastic drumming, and lead singer Chandrika Nath’s lovely voice, make this an album well worth listening to for the steampunk fan – and anyone else wanting to broaden their musical and ethnic horizons.
There may have been a cameo appearance by one member of the Steampunk Horde, who should have been in bed at the time of our Skype meeting! As always, thank you for visiting Behind the Steam!

Post Show Note!!! Sunday Driver informs me that “The Mutiny” refers to the Indian Mutiny of 1857. Now I’m off to look that up! Yay for learning more about European history! 🙂
