If there was a band that definitely succeeded to make an impact in the reality music show Uth Records then it was none other than the rugged boys from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Yasir and Jawad. The folk rock band consists of lead vocalist and bass guitarist Wali Khan Orakzai, rhythm guitarist Jawad Iqbal and lead guitarist and rabab enthusiast Yasir Khan.
After finishing with ‘Reidi Gul’, the band is now working on a music video titled ‘Niqab’. The song is actually poetry composed by Ghani Khan that highlights existentialism. “We wanted to stay away from clichéd themes like romanticism in Pashto poetry and that is why we chose a piece in which Ghani is looking for answers to different complicated questions in life,” says Jawad.
“It is very experimental and at places you might find it to be pointless,” states Iqbal. “But all of the absurdity is intentional; for all the videos after ‘Niqab’ we will not feature band performance; we will play around with visuals surrounding a single theme instead.”
Directed by Mash Productions; the music video for the band’s next song is expected to release on the 29th of November.
