New single this single is a sneak peek into the new sound & album
We’ve never looked back since. The loyalty and sheer passion
of our ever growing fan base was and continues to be our best compass. We’re
ready to give our fans more with a second album, and we’re still determined
more than ever to stay independent in doing so.
We’ve set three funding milestones:
The main goal, the all or nothing!
This will cover for the recording, mixing and mastering of the album. The sound for this album has been many years in the making. While exploring richer instrumentation and more prominent electronic layers, our songwriting continues to capture the bittersweet realities of the generation we belong to. Reaching this goal will allows us to experiment further with ambitious ingredients such as a string section!
The first stretch:
We’re a Do It Yourself type of band through and through. Muhammad writes the lyrics, Odai produces the music and Dirar is our cameraman and director. This milestone will allow us to make a music video, and will help us get the best possible exposure for the album with a much needed marketing campaign.
Our final goal:
It wiill take the album beyond online streaming and downloading. We will manufacture CDs and LPs in co-operation with the newly established Belbaleh label and we will commission some cover artwork and booklet design - because even in 2015, nothing beats holding a piece of beautifully designed and produced record in your hands!
With donation choices ranging from $5 to $10000, we went to great lengths to put together an exciting selection of perks for you:From pre-release download, exclusive t-shirts, limited edition posters and signed LP vinyls, to rewards delivered straight to the door by the band, backstage passes, private performances and co-producer credits!
and we would still be very grateful and touched!
We’re not alone in being an independent music
band in the Arab world.
We’re not alone in being an independent music band in the Arab world. In fact, these are very exciting times for independent artists initiating in Morocco to Lebanon (Against all odds!). Continuing to be empowered by fans and supporters is what we had our hearts set on when we decided to crowdfund for our sophomore album.
Support us as a way of keeping independent Arab music alive!
