HABIBI (New York City US, Modern Sky)
So, 27-05-18 Bumann & Sohn, Köln
Einlass 19:00, Beginn 20:00
Brooklyn-based quintet Habibi formed in the spring of 2011 by Detroit-native Rahill Jamalifard and Lenaya Lynch, who bonded over their love of Middle Eastern psych music. Tapping into their Motown roots of simple but infectious pop melodies delivered with punkish attitude, the two recruited Erin Campbell (guitar/bass) and Karen Isabel (drums), and the band were quick to receive critical accolades, with their self-titled Burger Records debut heralded by The New Yorker as 'stunning'. New EP 'Cardamon Garden' (March 2nd, Modern Sky).
