Shoeb Ahmad - "romance"

Shoeb Ahmad - "romance"
Shoeb Ahmad offers a rich and extensive background in contemporary music while
running the idiosyncratic imprint hellosQuare for over a decade. Using guitar, keyboard, voice and computer, Shoeb works both as singer/composer and improvisor.

Combining both acoustic and electronic approaches to music-making, Shoeb has released a diverse range of original music - including the critically acclaimed Watch/Illuminate on English label Mystery Plays Records - while also collaborating with numerous directors and choreographers to provide sound design and
soundtrack material for live theatre and dance works.

More recently, Shoeb has begun to explore installation pieces and composition for chamber ensembles, taking inspiration from 20th Century avant-classical works, Indian ragas and minimalist
electronic music.

Since November 2016, Shoeb has been working on new music for second solo album "quiver", which explores personal pasts and themes of identity (gender, race, religion) in an intimate noir-pop setting, inspired by the widescreen arrangements of The Go-Betweens, PJ Harvey, Tindersticks and The Temptations.

Shoeb has performed throughout Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the UK and the SE Asian region at venues such as The Judith Wright Centre (Brisbane), The Street Theatre (Canberra), Cafe OTO (London), Rough Trade East (London) and Pit Inn (Tokyo) with Australian festival appearances for Womadelaide, Sonic Masala, Open Frame, Liquid Architecture, You Are Here and TheNowNow.

About this track...

Mixed by Jonathon Boulet, "romance" is a giddy, jangly love letter to Shoeb's wife. Through a warm, joyful exhalt of devotion, there's reassurance that although Shoeb's external presentation has changed, the person inside remains the same and is deeply, irrevocably in love.
