Help Refugees And Buy This Brilliant Song By Shoeb Ahmad
Just over a month on from the release of Romance, Shoeb Ahmad returns with a noise pop rendition of new single "rinse". All funds raised from the release are being donated directly to the Asylum Seeker Research Centre.
A slow drive through intricately layered fuzz laced with delicate keys, vocals and a dominant bass line; rinse is the type of song that let's you sink into and fall for it's charms to the point of sheer swoon by the last note. A soft bite that teases what's to come in future releases.
rinse is being released early and with urgency in response to the continually unfolding and ever darkening Manus Island crisis. With all money made by the album being donated to the Asylum Seeker Research Centre. With Shoeb stating through their facebook page:
"i've been really haunted lately whilst reading and seeing images from manus island since the australian government abandoned a whole group of people in need.
it's unfortunate that the people who are supposed to represent us show a discerning lack of humanity and support for people looking for a better life, free of persecutions and terror.
i can't do a lot but as a person who shares some of their worries in life - but already with these simple freedoms at hand - i can only provide love and support for those who need it most."
