Kashmir – The Band breathes soul into ‘Khwaab’ with its music video

Khwaab

After releasing their debut album song ‘Khwaab’ in 2017 as winners of Pepsi’s Battle of the Bands, Kashmir – The Band has now released its official music video.

Weaving beautifully with the lyrics by Kashmir, Khwaab’s music video shares a strong resonance to the cutting-edge narratives one saw in the Pakistani music industry in the budding early 2000s. It truly brings back the time when Pakistan saw a strong rock music influence returning to the scene.

However, this time, Kashmir has proven it’s so much more than just a reminder of the music of the days gone by. By mixing a rugged, almost dystopian video with their style of music, the band has shown that it is indeed a welcomed addition to the music scene of Pakistan as they perfectly define the current situation of the industry – bursting with talent, yet subdued.

Truly, Kashmir’s latest is a reminder that one can have great music and a well-thought-out music video, instead of just focusing on one aspect of the two – and for that, one must give credit to the impeccable production design seen in the video.
