Agnee was formed in 2006 and soon signed by Sony BMG. Agnee is one of very few Indian rock bands to have signed a major label record deal. The band consists of Koco, lead guitarist, Mohan, lead vocalist. Their music contains strong Carnatic and Hindustani classical influences that are popular among the fans.
Agnee's music showcases all of the above and the compositions in the first album vary in style accordingly. The songs move in genre from Folk rock and Pop-Rock to straight up Pop, and incorporate elements of Funk, Jazz and Carnatic music as well.
The Band will soon make its Bollywood debut with Deepak Tijori's next project 'Rockin Love'. The band will not only compose music for the film but will also have some of the band members act in it.
