This is an obscure gem. The best description I can come up with is dream pop. Nothing quite like this song. Melancholic like the Vital Signs; prominent beat like Nazia Hasan; but perhaps the closest popular analog I can think of are a few songs off of Strings’ Duur, specifically O’ Janay Walay and Kuch To Ho Gaya.
Also the Urdu typography at the beginning of the video is beautiful. Reminiscent of old Urdu book covers.
