About Ali Awan
Ali Awan was born to an immigrant Pakistani father and first-generation Turkish mother just outside of Philadelphia, spending most of his early life in transit. That upbringing coupled with a love for sound and expression made a life in music natural to him. After his debut release “Citadel Blues”, an eastern cityscape of sampled drums, field recordings, & instrumentation dubbed “ferocious” by WBEZ’s Sound Opinions host and Chicago Tribune writer Jim DeRogatis, Awan formed an alternating live band and has been writing, touring, and recording under his name ever since. To date, he has shared stages with the likes of Natalie Prass, Low Cut Connie, Cherry Glazerr, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, The National Reserve, Ex Hex, Vacationer, and many more.
Awan’s latest material is a six-song summation of his emotional state over the past 12 months entitled “Moon Mode” that ranges from reverb-drenched swamp rock and roll to dreamy synth meditations.
The EP’s title track will be available April 9th, followed by “Climb” on May 7th, with the entire “Moon Mode” EP set for release June 11th via Born Losers Records.
Husbands is a landlocked beach pop band that sidequests Krautrock, garage rock, and
tropicalia. For its new LP, “After the Gold Rush Party,” released January 14, 2020, the
Oklahoma City band also dabbles in no wave and nineties-inspired pop, recommended if you
like anything from Fleetwood Mac to MGMT, Beach House to the Beach Boys. Lyrically,
songwriters Danny Davis and Wil Norton tackle what it means to be punk while working a
nine-to-five and trying to find zen in an anxious world.
