An approaching twenty eight minutes, nine track album, (available on bandcamp) which encompasses various issues of social disquiet which is delivered in quiet contemplation as acoustic guitar and vocal envelop the listener in sorrowful and quizzical compositions.

Their confrontational style towards both religious fundamentalism, particularly with songs mocking ISIS and much of the political structure in the Middle East – along with female members in the band has found them regularly receiving death-threats since their inception in 2013, though despite that, they retain both a presence along with a significant local following and their début album marks a significant chapter in their career.

From the nine track LP – قمت طلعت مع (Marched With The People).
