After a long wait and multiple delays, Junaid Khan has finally released his much awaited single “Keh Do“. And this turns out to be officially his first musical project after he parted ways with Call band.

Junaid rose to fame with his rock and real edgy style of singing with Call.

Finally it seems that Pakistani musicians our realizing the point that they would have to live out even without the YouTube so we are seeing couple of prominent video releases over the past few weeks and a couple of more to be released in the coming days if the given dates are something to go by.

By Hasan Faridi

It was the year 2003 when Saif and Naeem decided to step into the world of music to create a band named The Sketches that would bring people together through folk and Sufi music.

Basement gets Alive

As many of you would relate to me, life in an engineering school gets more and more tough and exhausting as the semester approaches the mid. Any extra curricular activity during it really releases your work tensions, but of course for a very short period of time.

Few days back, I got a call from Nestle and they invited me to an event which was basically a live concert of Nescafe Basement showcasing the whole new younger lot of Pakistani music scene mentored by Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan a.k.a Xulfi.

Overload – Ankahi (KM Single Review)

September 7, 2012

By Ahmad Uzair

Live and let live! is the motto of Overload’s latest video “Ankahi” which marks a new beginning for Overload who have been in the industry for quite some time but mostly got noticed by their appearance on this season of Coke Studio.

Overload, as they claim, is the loudest band of Pakistan and they have surely proved the point with some of their kick-ass performances in past. They have always seemed to believe on the evolution of music and this is pretty much evident with this very outing too. In this song you would hear a totally different side of Overload which not many of us have seen before and this is something that makes this project rather unusual for the band and fans alike.

Omer Nadeem – Kin Raaston Pe (KM Single Review)

September 2, 2012

By Ahmad Uzair

Just like every field of life, luck and fortune plays an equally important part in music arena too. At times, the music or for that matter the singer too, might not be that talented but it’s just the luck and your fate which takes you to simply another level. It’s sort of a you-miss-I-hit thing. These cases might be little and be called as exceptions but the opposite ones are pretty common.

Saad and Ahsan – Jaago (KM Single Review)

By Ahmad Uzair

Lately there has been a trend going on to release patriotic singles on days of national significance. While some of them are really good ones, others are pretty easy to forget. But in the end it’s the visual and lyrical theme which carves its own niche out there. Same is the case with “Jaago” by Saad Tauseef and Ahsan Bin Arif, commonly known as Saad and Ahsan. They are an up and coming band from Islamabad and are new comer to this industry.
