Dr Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy show us how to be a ‘Grown Man’

Melbourne, there’s a new music collective in town and it’s about time we introduced you to them. If you are partial to a bit of jazz, a dash of R’n’B and a pinch of hip hop, then meet your new favourite band. DR SHINA’S JAZZ LOBOTOMY. 

With band members that have dabbled in all kinds of genres, the collective has come together to explore culture and identity in our country. Chinmay Sinha is the act’s frontman of sorts and is a pretty funny guy. With their debut single ‘Grown Man’ on the way, we’ve got something very unique emerging onto our music scene and to celebrate its release, Chinmay has decided to share his tips on how to be a proper ‘Grown Man.

“Are you struggling to convince yourself and others that you are a grown-ass adult man? Rest easy, these 5 simple suggestions will have you feel secure about your masculinity in no time” 

-“Under no circumstances purchase anything pink. Pink lady apples are a double no-no; from now on you’re a Fuji man!”

-“Make sure one person in your friendship group is shorter than you. If you are the short guy, change friendship groups now! Consider befriending a jockey #springracingcarnival”

– “Only purchase baby carrots. You don’t need to feel emasculated by anything in your own refrigerator.”

– “Grown men don’t cry, but if you do occasionally need to squeeze out a few quiet, manly tears, make sure you bottle that shit up! Man tears are great protein, and can be consumed in shake form pre- and post-workout.” 

– “If you’re going to be a Grown Man, especially a sexy one, maybe don’t be Indian like yours truly is. The lead role goes to Matt Damon, not the Indian guy. But if you are an Indian grown man, don’t fret! There are plenty of sidekick roles for you as long as you’re willing to ham up your spicy accent and be an unthreatening caricature. At least the food is amazing.”
