Narked Records is delighted to announce the release of the hotly-anticipated second single, "Illusion," from the Sridhar & Arun Shenoy project. Sridhar assumes lead and backup vocal responsibilities on this single, which sees the duo moving towards an alternative sound with a retro vibe, compared to the hard rock aesthetic of the first single, "Make up Your Mind Or Leave It Behind" released in May 2014.

The song was made available for pre-order on iTunes leading up to the official release date on August 05, 2014. One can also stream the full song online at Radio promotion is being handled by Jerome Promotions.
