Poor Rich Boy

At SiddySays, when we decide to write about music, we have two choices…. Do our research and spend hours online OR make a phone call to our resident music guru Ujay . When we wanted to compile a list of the top underground bands in Pakistan, we did exactly the same… take the easier, simpler route and reach out to the man behind most of the playlists in our lives.

Here is UJay’s list of the Top Underground Bands in the country.

POOR RICH BOY:

Poor Rich Boy , Pakistan’s underground indie-art rock phenomenon, conjures the strangeness of everyday life in a society where expressing one’s inner world can be both a cathartic and subtly rebellious act. Enigmatic and layered, the band’s striking vocals, atmospheric sounds, and the occasional kazoo create a crystalline sound that suggests, but rarely reveals’.

MOLE:

Mole ‘s music consists of these sexplosive beepity-bleep-android-meets-plantlike-intelligent-infinity-loop noise/texture variables, dirty retro jingle jangle jingle jangle chaka whakka guitars, bangin’ acoustic or electronic drubudums with lots of rolls and breaks and ffatt melodic bbasss grooves and soothing synthz texturez for your soulz while someone sometimes sings words over it in a tune’.

THE REBEL ALLIANCE:

‘The Rebel Alliance comprises of the Boy With Loud Guitar and Bilal Zero and assorted friends. Guerilla style: Don’t do much production and tuning up takes time. Heart on sleeve, we can write more songs in the time it takes to fix stuff’.
