The "Horcrux in Lingampally" EP has been inspired by Lingampally, a not-very-special suburban in Hyderabad (India), its culture and the people. The surrounding villages, Tellapur, Ramachandrapuram (BHEL), Nagulapally and Shankarpally have made a high impact on the inspiration and the construction of these musical works, with their picturesque atmosphere and unique people who live here.

The EP has been made with special reverence to Tara, the goddess whom the main commercial market, Taranagar is named after.

The album art features Pochamma, a village deity in the Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh. Proto-Telugu scripts and Satavahana coins have been texturized to depict the history of this land.
