Mashrou' Leila

From a very different place than their previous effort, and having toured around the world, Mashrou’ Leila finnally released their new album, called “Ibn El Leil”.

The massive single “Maghawir” combines Hamed Sinno’s full voice with brass section and quasi-electronic beat. While its title literally means “Commandos”, it’s actually a popular name for the Lebanese army.

The songs “narrates a possible version of a club shooting in Beirut,” the band explained “drawing on references to real Lebanese case histories from two different shootings that took place within the same week, both of which resulted in the deaths of extremely young victims, each of who was out celebrating their birthday.”
