As the 2018 elections season at its peak and as everyone awaits for the final verdict tonight. Recently, the known comedian Ali Gul Pir released his newest track titled Paris, a satire on politicians claiming to transform Pakistani cities into the likes of foreign capitals.
The lyrics of the song are classic Pir style with the comedian mocking politicians who claim to transform cities while more pressing issues such as justice for the poor are put on the back burner. Verses such as Sheher ko Paris bana den, khilayi makhlooq hain pyare,” and “Kuch to vote laga de, mujhe basPM bana de will make you laugh.
Besides the obvious, what makes the 96-second track even better is SomeWhat Super’s electronic music and the trippy video. The music troupe perfectly fits the mood that the video creates by playing with spatial dimensions.
On the other hand, Jasim Haider and the Pindi Boys, who were the part of last year’s Pepsi Battle of the Bands, also released a new track called Hun Bas. This is a deviation from the band’s usual bluesy sound as they’ve stepped into hard rock.
Both the singers have expressed the nation’s frustration and agitation. The lyrics of the songs represent the political atmosphere of the country and how people are hoping for a better Pakistan in coming future.
