Kashmir – The Band won our hearts in 2017 when they claimed a triumphed win in Pepsi Battle of the Bands Season 2. The band consists of Bilal Ali on the vocals, Vais Khan as the lead guitarist, Usman Siddiqui as the bass guitarist, Shane J. Anthoney on the drums, Zair Zaki as the rhythm guitarist, and Ali Raza on the piano.
With their new album named Khwaab, Kashmir has been winning our hearts once again, giving a variety of different and soul touching songs that all have unique essence to it. The first song they recorded after winning Pepsi Battle of the Bands Season 2 was “Dhoop” but having been a very soul searching song; the band did not find the right time to release it, until now.
Kashmir has released its last song and final song “Dhoop” in their Album Khwaab, and we have been listening to it on the loop.
Most songs begin with an appreciation for the lyrics, but here we are forced to talk about the video of the music first because we are captivated by the strong screen appearance this song holds. The cinematic representation is way too good, and it characterizes the song perfectly.
Directed by Umar Anwar, Dhoop’s video goes well with the lyrics of the song, which adds the much-needed effect in the whole music video.
The smoke effect is going through various scenes kind of shows the journey of a man through highs and lows. The video does not have too much going on, so it’s undoubtedly much appealing to be able to focus on the concept that is being shown in the video.
Each word in the lyrics holds depth, and it sums up the entire song as a very soul searching song, perfect for your long road journeys.
“Dhoop mein khara bikhar raha tha main,
Baadlon ne bhi saaya na dia.”
These words will echo in your ears and revolve in your mind because these simple words hold a lot of weight with context to the meaning. Aren’t we all standing in the sun, unable to find any shade to help us cope through the hardships of life? Such outstanding work on the lyrics of this song.
While the lyrics of the song are way too heavenly, Bilal Ali’s heavenly voice creates such a dramatic environment for the whole song that it immediately takes you to a different world where there you can find your lost self.
Produced by Shahi Hassan, Dhoop has hit all the chords in the right places. If we were to describe this song in three words, it would be surreal, heavenly, and mesmerizing. One of the significant elements of this song is the association of the lyrics to the video, making it work like a charm and turning it into yet another masterpiece by Kashmir.
Dhoop tends to make you feel, absorb, and ponder as it takes you to another dimension of the world.

‘Tere Saath’- a ballad of love and heartbreak
Abdullah Qureshi is back with another superb single, which is sure to become your favorite song of this season. The single titled ‘Tere Saath’ is Qureshi’s first collaboration with renowned music producer Eahab Akhtar. The song has been sung and penned by both the artists while Akhtar has composed and produced the music.
The song was recorded over two days after Qureshi got a call from Akhtar to give a listen to the new track that he had made. Things came together from that point on, and here we are with a beautiful composition that is fun, quirky, sad, and impactful at the same time.
The song comes as a breather of fresh air in the current times when everyone is confined to their houses because of the global pandemic. The song, written in English and Urdu, is a fusion of contemporary and pop music. It’s a happy-sad song, something that hasn’t been done before.
The song is about a lover asking his beloved the age-old question that people usually ask in love, “How could you do this to me?” The lover reminisces about the dreams he had for them, but they could never be fulfilled. He says there isn’t anything left to be said between the two of them and that things happen in life. According to him, the world is full of liars. That is why he wants to speak the truth because he isn’t like others. All of that is said through an upbeat melody that is sure to get you grooving.
The overall feel of the song is very western but retains its flavor and soul with the use of simple yet powerful lyrics in Urdu. The arrangement of the song is equally unique with the use of instruments such as guitar, drums, and techno beats that transform you into a musical world.
