Self titled album Shironamhin will feature 10 tracks. ‘We try to portray a specific incident or period, which will always remain with the listeners even after many years, through the songs. In the upcoming album we tried to do the same,’ Zia said.
‘We are taking a little more time to be flawless with the songs, but we hope will be able release the album very shortly,’ said Shafin, the drummer of the band
He further added, ‘Music is ever changing and Shironamhin always attempts to enrich their music through experimentation.’

All the songs have been written and composed by band members.
