The Abbasi Brothers

Something Like Nostalgia

    "Something Like Nostalgia" is a film for your ears, a cinematic glimpse into the purity of everyday life. Written over two years, these 15 scenes are like snapshots of daydreams, their soundscapes are their subtitles, and the origin is not so very foreign. Yousuf and Amman Abbasi represent a new generation of evocative and epic instrumentalists. Following in the footsteps of the late 70s output of Eno & Byrne and Rodelius, then wading through the enigma of early 80s 4AD, they arrive in the 21st century with a sound that is familiar and yet all their own. Intensely motivated by the moving image, The Abbasi Brothers have created a new lexicon of music using digital instruments, electronics, guitar, piano and found sound. Through dreamlike 'sound-scenes' that celebrate nostalgia and the gentleness of the mundane in our day-to-day living they manage to make the ordinary extraordinary. While engulfed in their take on life-as-film made super-real is so rewarding one doesn't want the simple moments to ever end. Intricate and evocative, this is music to accompany the dance of waving hands as the train leaves the platform.
