From the LP Rock Khan Roll, the third of the nine tracks – Scrap Army encapsulates the elements of hip-hop, Pakistan / Bangladesh / Indian Sub-Continent and rock that threads through the output of URVah Khan.
The inclusive nature of the spiky sounds are always a pleasure to return to as the music bounces its way around the room, grabbing hold of the audience and hurtling them around the dance-floor in infectious joy and you can’t ever stop smiling.
The light-hearted party moment of the tracks belies the superbly composed songs which seamlessly weave in the seemingly disconnected varieties of influence.
The Canada based alt-rock project URVah Khan released the LP Rock Khan Roll on the 9th.

The eager sense of anticipation, as to what formulation will be heard, is what makes for the pleasurable return to the site of URVah Khan after a two year absence.
In Strippa’Sta, which is the second of the nine tracks on the album, URVah Khan combines rock-a-billy with South-Eastern Asian and hip-hop influences to deliver pumping energy that finds the listener tapping footsteps in unison.
The switches of style through Strippa’Sta is a typical example of the out-put of URVah Khan, as are the scowling lyrics flashing scorn on the subject matter of the piece.
