In order to convey emotions, AP Atwal, a Canadian Indie-Pop artist best known for the popular singles "Vows" and "Jatt," feels that music should be a balance of elegance and melancholy.

He refers to the work of legendary Charlie Chaplin and makes a bold statement: "Saying that one of the most well-known entertainers in the world is underrated could seem weird. Charlie Chaplin is, however. Not always as a director, actor, or comedian, but as a music composer."

AP Atwal, who hails from a small town in India and established his musical career independently, believes that language is not a barrier when it comes to bringing music to new audiences. He shares, "I feel myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to watch Tom and Jerry and Charlie Chaplin for hours when I was a kid. My art is greatly influenced by it. I was motivated to create elegant and romantic music to frame my ideas in contrast to the tramp persona after observing how they tell the story entirely through music and without the need of words."

Speaking on the art of storytelling through music, he refers to Tom and Jerry and says, "In Tom and Jerry, neither of the characters speak to tell a tale or to convey any of their emotions. Play it now and watch it. In order to tell the tale in this cartoon, background music is used a lot. When Tom walks, they use a louder sound, while when Jerry walks, they use a softer, more lively sound effect. Naturally, this has to do with their size. Depending on the character's emotion-joy, sadness, fear, anger, or shock-the music will change."

When asked about his upcoming releases, he said that the following single, which is anticipated to arrive next month, is now being banked for video production. He is also collaborating with a well-known Punjabi artist on a song that will likely be released late this year.
