The band has compiled an album of Hindi songs (not released yet) and are working on a Kannada Album now. They have also composed a few ad jingles. Says Pratap Sounderrajan, "we are now focusing on music that has no boundaries". Their music spans genres and they "have come together as a band, to create music in their own way, irrespective of the language spoken at home". Swastika is from Assam, and is now married to Adarsh Bungley, a Kannadiga from Bangalore. Soundarrajan is a Tamilian Bangalorean.

Taan Saints say rising up to the occasion was their motive for this unique tribute to Rajyotsava day and they consider their composition, a fitting tribute to the land we live in. There is a classical touch as well as western style to the composition, which reflects their own life. Concludes Pratap, "the youth of today have best of both the worlds. Kannada is flowing in our veins and we do not forget that."
