About the song
The song is an ode to a dad in heaven by a daughter who yearns for his presence. The daughter in an attempt to speak to her father who is no longer with her, utters, “I’m Okay”, while in reality she isn’t okay because of the fact that her superhero isn’t around her.
The daughter wishes to speak to her daddy one more time, hear him calling her. She wishes she could tell her daddy that his little baby girl had become stronger than she used to be. The daughter wishes her father to be beside her at this point of time.
About The Speksy Pscyentist
The Speksy Pscyentist (or TSP) is a Mangaluru-based duo act. The story goes back to late 2019 , when Jyoshma (a then PhD doctoral student) had a random conversation with Mangaluru's ace rocker Renston Fernandes (a then dual postgrad student at the University of Sussex, UK and a Frontman - Sounds Fishy, Avalanche Brakedown) on releasing a cover. So, early 2020 when both landed in India on a winter break, they recorded a cover which received a lot of attention.
The name of the act was a crucial jolt that was created. Now since, both Ren and Jo were into research, they were equally insane people and wore spectacles - they decided to keep the name - The Speksy Pscyentist.
Jyoshma D'Souza is a postdoctoral researcher at the International Agency of Research on Cancer (IARC) , a body of the WHO in France. A versatile vocalist and a songwriter, she has won several competitions and hearts. One could easily call 'Jo' a 'nerd' - be it in her research or in music.
Renston Fernandes is a dual postgrad in engineering from the University of Sussex, UK , currently a doctoral researcher (PhD) on Clean Combustion Research Centre and an ace songwriter cum vocalist. Former frontman of the band, Sounds Fishy (Mangalore's leading heavy rock act) and a former frontman of The Southern Bandits (UK), Renston's act has been airplayed by several music stations including Rock Rage Radio, Metal Mayhem and was also the only Asian act in the opening polls of UK's metal festival.
