Listen: Islamabad Based Asfandyar Khan's Charming EP
21 August 2012
Asfandyar Khan is a musician currently based in Islamabad, Pakistan. Inspired by the likes of Matthew Robert Cooper, Brian Eno, Tim Hecker and Keith Fullerton Whitman, his guitar-based ambient music consists of serene soundscapes that steadily make their way to gorgeous build-ups and intense crescendos as they suspend in your subconscious.
His slow-building, shivery washes of sound are exquisitely produced and will come as a treat to fans of post rocks veterans such as Sigur Rós and Explosions In The Sky, yet with less vocals, drums (and band members).
We've just come across this young musician from Pakistan and hope to be hearing much more soon. You can hear and download his delicate The North Wind EP below and head over to his bandcamp for previous releases. We recommend you listen to them all.
