Kuwait audio-visual artist Zahed Sultan‘s forthcoming album, Eyeamsound, is set to be released 26 May. In the meantime he’s dropped a new track off the album and it’s quite a departure from his usual repertoire. ” ‘Democrazy’ tells the story of socio-political challenges that we face as a people the world over, with an emphasis on skewed notions of democracy imposed upon citizens by profiteers.”
The track itself is a punk inspired number with elements of surf rock and rockabilly sprinkled throughout. Not exactly the first sound you think of when someone says Kuwait.
Give it a spin and let us know what you think. It’s all very timely as next month we’ll be taking you to Pakistan for a little foray into their burgeoning punk scene.
