Pakistani pop-rock band MIRAGE releases the eighth track, a disco-pop number, Ziddi Aashiq, from their second album, Doosri Dastak.
Ziddi Aashiq is a stubborn lover announcing his careless and carefree one-sided love for someone who doesn’t even know about his existence. The music was composed back in 2016 by Saad Hayat and Bradley D’Souza, who also features on lead-guitars in the track.
“I bounced it off [the composition] with Rehan and asked him to write some ‘I don’t care, I can move on’ type of lyrics. To my surprise, Rehan composed and wrote some crazy psycho lover lyrics and we called it Ziddi Aashiq” said Saad Hayat.
The video was shot live at Saad Hayat’s studio, with a classic 70s look & a disco setup! This was part of the 2-day video shoot when the band shot 6 music videos in 48 hours.
Ziddi Aashiq, recorded live, mixed and mastered at Saad Hayat Music Studio, features the talented Bradley D’Souza on lead-guitars along with band members Rehan Nazim on vocals, Saad Hayat on backing vocals and keys, Mohsin Raza Shah and Hasan Mahmud on guitars, Shane Kerr on bass and Ajay Harri on drums.
Indeed, Ziddi Aashiq marks the eighth release from Doosri Dasktak, having previously released ‘Akela’, ‘Pagli’, ‘Barhe Chalo’, ‘Befiker’, ‘Panchi’ featuring Alycia Dias, ‘Pyar Hua’, and ‘Kyun Is Tarhan’.
The music video for Ziddi Aashiq has been conceptualized and co-directed by Saad Hayat with cinematography and direction by Asghar Ali Ghanchi, art direction by Hasan Ahmed, styling by Aafreen Shahab, wardrobe by Naghmas, hair, and makeup by Sikander Khan, line production by Azeem Arif and Adnan Yunus, edit and post by Bilal A. Mughal with support from by Shahrukh Hayat, J.F. Irani, Kashif Ahmed Khan and Shakir Ali.
MIRAGE will be releasing the final two songs from the album in the coming weeks which will be followed by a digital album launch show.
