Minaxi are an alternative rock band based out of Brooklyn, New York. The current line-up includes Shrenik Ganatra on guitars and vocals, Liam Christian on bass and Steve Carlin on drums.
Drawing inspiration from Hindustani pop, Pakistani rock and 80s/90s guitar-based progressive music from the United States and United Kingdom, Minaxi's sound combines elements from psychedelia, shoegazing, hard rock, dream pop and sufi. Some of Minaxi's influences include The Smashing Pumpkins, Jal -The Band, My Bloody Valentine, Strings, Slowdive, Lucky Ali, A.R. Rahman, DJ Suketu, Junoon, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Dinosaur Jr., Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, The Cure, PJ Harvey and Steve Albini.
With well-crafted melodies enveloped in a guitar-driven "wall-of-sound", Minaxi are known in their circles for embracing the "one-take, no click" approach to recording, "quiet-loud" dynamics, meticulous layering and DIY production methods. The band released their debut full-length album, "Khwab" on March 13, 2020.

Minaxi have played several shows in the Brooklyn music scene, appeared on Manhattan's Sugar Water Babies radio and performed live at Brooklyn's Leesta Vall Recording Studio. Minaxi's music appears in Rolling Stone India, Bands Do BK, Rock Street Journal & Creative Boom. They were coined Brooklyn's "favourite local shoegaze band", in jest, for their frequent open mic performances at Topaz, a bar in Bushwick. It's the term Minaxi have embraced wholeheartedly.
