TUNE SHEIKH - Fortune
With electrifying measures that pay homage to the swung heavy beats of 90's east coast hip hop and melodies that nod towards 60s Arabian and Western soul, 'Fortune' devours the listener from every angle possible with a form of alchemy that is rare. At a time where the world is coming apart, SHEIKH reminds us that music is a universal language to unite.
SHEIKH are a fresh London-based band imprinting their unique sound across the UK and further. Having recently released their debut single 'Fonda' and hazy pop number 'I could be yours' and playing their first sell out headline show at Birthdays in Dalston, the middle-eastern psych rockers are back with new single ‘Fortune’.
Lead singer Mazen delves into the meaning behind the track: "I've wondered how money changes people. And I don't use 'money' lightly. I mean unhealthy almost grotesque amounts of wealth that oozes out of your pores and changes the way you walk and talk and see the world. Are you still yourself? Or do you become chained to ego, even aroused by your inner dominion over the world. And after all that… I wonder what's left behind."
