To celebrate LISTEN’s new website we’re interviewing a bunch of local Australian artists to profile them on the site. Introducing Shoeb Ahmad:

How would you best describe your music?

emo-indie-soul

How did your band / musical project start?

an outpouring of feelings and emotions that was best expressed on my own rather than in the groups i already play with.

Do you make music with a political focus? If so, what is your focus? If not, why not?

there are political undercurrents to the music without being overbearing, tackling many aspects of identity in a present voice as someone who could become marginalised at any time.

What has been the biggest highlight as a band?

releasing this music to the public and sharing my journey for others to take inspiration from.

Who are your biggest influences musically right now?

portishead, pj harvey, the go-betweens, marika hackman, gwenno, mount kimbie

Where can people find your music?
