walk like an egyptian
They call themselves a post-pop band and have never set foot in Cairo. Nevertheless, they see Egypt in their mirrorballs and dream about pyramids, camels and girls covered with veils. Egyptian Hip Hop may be a delusion, yet they are very real. Coming from Manchester, these four 18-year-olds (who wear Klaxons bright clothes and expose their asymmetrical hair) know how to give Hacienda sound a whole new twist. Funky, ‘baggy’ indie, dark but upbeat… its all there, packed again in new ways. Think of These new Puritans, Darwin Deez, Is Tropical and add tons of mancunian style. Perfect.
