Oum Shatt - Silent Girl (With Silly Scarf)
First, if you ever read somewhere the description Arabesque rock n’ roll you ought to yourself to press play. Well, that’s what i did with the Berlin based band Oum Shatt where those words appeared on their press release that dropped in my inbox. Second, when you read read words like ”Ian Curtis naked in Cairo, half past three in the morning” you know that what you’re about to hear will probably be good! The aforementioned sentence comes to life with Silent Girl (With Silly Scarf) while you find yourself floating above Eastern chords, surf guitars and the romantic but distance voice of Jonas Poppe and that’s when you get to realise that it’s the kind of band that will remind you that there was an era once were music was music and songs were songs, sounds that you’d wanted to whistle and words you wanted to sing! Simple but magical. How often do you get that any more???
Power To The Woman Of The Morning Shift EP will be released digitally on August 30th while a limited edition of vinyls will drop on September 26th on Oum Shatt's bandcamp page.
