New Year Ninety 2017 – 20 to 11

Now reaching the thick end of the New Year Ninety 2017 chart –  in to the top twenty countdown from 20 to 11.

I would like to make a special reference to my co-founding partner – Julie Norbury –  of the original site in the last decade – who died in 2011 – as always my inspiration for keeping writing music reviews.

Kabreet – ضوّ (Light) – Single Review

Kabreet known locally as كبريت (Matchsticks) is a newly formed rock band from Syria.



With one track to hear – ضوّ (Light) is a track that has a sense of progressive rock with a subtle synth as backdrop whilst retaining punchy edginess to it as highlighted by bass and percussion while the guitar provides a bluesy blouse to the material rounded off by vocal which resonates of tradition. Enabling Kabreet to deliver a track that has a global reach and a welcome insight into their determination to get on with being creative and doing what they enjoy despite the ensuing chaos around them.
