about

Zahir Montevarchi, Italy

Zahir knew their start in 2013, only getting to a complete formation in the summer of 2014.
'70's blues and rock are a major source of influence for the band, with a touch of prog, and often dwelving in more acoustic atmospheres.
'Portrait of Zahir as a Young Band" is the band's first EP and a snapshot of their music in its early days.

Track Name: Boogie Hymn
One for the body
One for the soul
C'mon people right now
Gotta forget all the things you know
One for the sun
One for the rain
C'mon folks!
U gotta grow you all insane!

Yeah we're gettin' high
Just a step before dyin'
Livin' on the edge
And fuck all those badges
Got three condoms in my pocket now
Here dicks wanna play like violin bows
So c'mon here and naked as children
Wake me up cuz I'm stoppin' listenin'
Don't have to be scared of life
Get in the car, get high
C'mon now we're gonna take a little ride

One for the sex
Two for the sex
Three
For girls with no dress

Keep on gettin' high
Just a step before die
Livin' on the edge
And fuck all those badges
Got two condoms in my pocket now
Here dicks wanna play like violin bows
So c'mon here, naked as children
Awaken me, I'm stoppin' listenin'
Don't have to be scared of dyin'
Stay in the car, stay high
C'mon now we're gonna take a little ride
Track Name: Araby
I swore I would keep, I wore my will
Light's on fright tonight, this evening
Fate's in late and I'm scare 'till the core
Mama I swore mama I swore
Away from mirrors all alone
The purest expression
Of the dumbest action
Was the future I kept inside my eyes
Hope we hold just gets us old
And this oldness is just
A growth in pride
I still can remember the day I told her
Nothing was deeper than what I had inside me
Wrinkles come
As we go on through this circus
Of joy and hipocrisy
Now if I could
Be sure I would
Buy that jar
that was in Araby
Track Name: Wander in the Es
Leave the future behind
Forget your home

Come, Come,
The stories they told us were pointless
The paths they showed us were aimless
Why did we remain that still and that mute
While livid hands kept playing silent flutes?
Walk, Walk,
In a dead city named with a lie
Filled with people longing to die
And the music we listened
Left cracks on its walls
And in the dreams I recall
There's nothing but scorn
Come, Come,
'Cause there's still a light
Which shines for the vacuum
There's still a sun spark
At the end of the horizon
So c'mon c'mon, we'll sleep on the cliff
Overlooking the island where they compose riffs
Come, Come,

Wander in the Es
I'd buy the rain just to see you cry again
You dance
On your blame
And black voices echo inside
So dance faster for me
Now
Dance 'till bother my sleep
'Cause dawn's weeping

Wander in the Es
Track Name: 136
Fucked up in my redemption
I want no smiles
Could I get some satisfaction?
Get high
And the waste I'm gettin' close
I souppose
Is just another trick like the thorn and the rose
I was, I was
I was an asshole baby,
Maybe I still am 'r u ready
I'm gonna talk a few 'bout me
But first u gotta snatch your lids
You can't close your eyes
You gotta look right through me
I don't want you to have no expectation
'Cuz I could lie
Well, I just live dans my immagination
Is it a big fish to fry?

And the waste I'm gettin' close
I souppose
Is just another trick like the thorn and the rose
I was, I was
I was an asshole baby,
Maybe i still am 'r u ready
I'm gonna talk a few 'bout me
But first u gotta snatch your lids
You can't close your eyes
You gotta look right through me
I was an asshole baby,
Maybe I still am 'r u ready
I gonna talk a few 'bout me
But first u gotta snatch your lids
You can't close your eyes
You gotta look right through me
