Teddy Boy Kill, founded in 2008 with Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a ToyMob -  An epic connection inside the underground music fracas of New Delhi. An electro-punk duo, emerging as a distinct and hard hitting sound and lyrics, that inspired and shocked many. From underground clubs to exotic islands to international festivals, Teddy Boy Kill traversed five intense touring years traversing China, Sweden, Germany and La Reunion having produced two albums, numerous remixes and 5 indie videos. The duo remained outside the existing 'nepotism and harangue' of the Indian scene with a steady onslaught of catchy singles, strark videos and energetic live concerts all over India. Now branded as "one of the most brash and autodidactic sparks of Indian electronica" by NME in 2013.
