Arrows, the Mumbai-based musical project led by David Britto, was formed in 2018 following his time as a bassist for The Tripp, a Bombay blues-rock group. While with the band, David Britto had the opportunity to perform at various clubs and music festivals, such as Bacardi NH7 Weekender and Sula Fest. In 2016, they released an EP titled “Superhuman”. After leaving the band, he launched his solo project, Arrows, which features guest vocalists on his songs. Since the launch of Arrows in 2019, David Britto has been joined by a talented roster of artists, including Vernon Noronha, Siddharth Basrur, Raghav Meattle, The Lightyears Explode, and Tejas. His music blends a variety of influences, from blues-rock to pop, and showcases his songwriting talent and ability to craft captivating soundscapes. When he’s not composing or performing, David Britto shares his knowledge and expertise of the indie music scene as a writer for Rolling Stone India. He also hosts the successful podcast series “My First Record”, where he interviews artists and delves into their musical journeys. With a passion for music and a deep understanding of the industry, David Britto is poised to continue making a big impact with this music project, Arrows.

“The bass line for ‘Another Avenue’ was the first piece of music I wrote for Arrows in 2018. I was finally able to finish the song in 2021 and it revolves around the theme of infatuation,” David Britto said. “I’ve adored the work both Jason [D’Souza] and Riya [Duggal] have done in their respective careers. I’ve followed Jason’s stint in music from his time in various bands as a guitarist as well as his work as a producer for some of my favorite Indian records. I’ve known Riya for close to 10 years now and I’ve always admired her work ethic and her ability as a vocalist to make melodies sound so sweet. It is a pleasure to have worked with both of them.”
