Present my band Alif's latest release:
Zimmedari means Responsibility.
The song is a satire on the current times we live in. It is written for the situation in India but it applies to the whole world in the current scenario.
And it will always be relevant.
That is why the tag below the title:
Location: Here, Date: Now
The interesting part about the song is that the last word of a line is the first word of the next line.
We had an absolute blast making this song and I love how the song has come out so powerful!
Love the guitar sound 🤘🏼

Making the video for the song was a lovely learning experience for me.
I made 3 different versions of the video out of which we finally went with this one.
The backgound (on which the lyrics have been written) has been created from scratch in Photoshop. The whole idea was to give the vibe of a newspaper.
I learnt a lot of tricks in photoshop while making this.
Post that I wrote each lyric separatelty in photohsop and brought all of it into final cut pro X to make the edit.
At the backgound we wanted something energetic since the song itself is so powerful.
And what better footage then the band's live videos!
So all the backgound videos that you see are the band's live shows over the years.
You can see me playing the keyboards :)
(Do not miss my big jump at 2:01 in the video 😁)
