“It’s about being away from the person you really care about and love spending time with. And you don’t really realize their worth, till you are with them, and only when they are, metaphorically speaking, under ‘a different sky’. It was something, that I was going through last year, and I thought about it while coming back home from Mumbai,” Anuv said in an interview.

The song is played on a ukulele, which as Anuv says, was more of audience demand. “ My last song on the ukulele was in 2018, Ocean – an English song.

Anuv Jain has a heartfelt message for his twin sister in his track “Maula”

Anuv Jain’s track called Maula, which he had penned when he was 17 years old has a heartfelt message in it for his sister. The vocals beautifully articulate his twin sister’s feelings when their father passed away a few years ago. It meticulously showcases emotions of hope, sadness, love, and heartbreak. Maula describes the feeling of missing someone, not having them in your life anymore, and waiting for them to come back.

“When we lose someone very close to us, the world moves on but we still continue to live with the person in our hearts. These memories might even give us greater comfort than anyone else’s actual physical presence and make us consider giving up anything to get them for a few more moments. I have tried to translate this exact feeling into words, to make the listener ponder over the helplessness of an individual who faces such a tragedy. This song is really close to my heart as it is associated with my father. It expresses longing in the loveliest of way,” says Anuv Jain

Maula is Anuv’s fourth song following the earlier tracks like Baarishein, Ocean, and Riha.

Anuv Jain: An artist cannot be scared of sharing emotions

Indie musician Anuv Jain talks about creating music that is relatable on an emotional level, and explains why he decided to leave his family business and become a full-time musician.
Although he started releasing music a few years back, it wasn’t up until the Lockdown, the Ludhiana-born Anuv Jain had decided to become a “full-time” singer-songwriter. “Three months back I think, I took this call of creating music for a living. I mean I charted out the entire sort of future for me if I get into this. But I realize, this is what I love the most and that’s why I decided to become a proper singer-songwriter,” says Anuv.
His social media following has played a very important role in his choosing music as a career. “For someone who just started putting up videos, just on their guitar, without any major label backing, its nice to see how people have liked my music, and more people are listening to it. It’s a really encouraging thing for me to see that people like my music and want more of it ,” says the 25-year-old.

“Music has to be very personal. Isn’t it?” he asks. “ I mean if an artist, is not able to draw from their own experience, then I don’t think there’s a point of creating art in the first place. All of my songs have been drawn from incidents that I have witnessed, and how I felt in those moments. An artist can’t be scared of sharing those emotions,” says Anuv, who became an even more popular name, at the start of the Lockdown with his single, Maula, which was a dedication to his father, who passed away.

“ It wasn’t easy, of course. But it was a pain, I wanted to share with the people, and as a family, we were really strong around that time. I wanted to share all that, and it was just really beautiful to see how so many people loved it,” he says.
