The fever of “Charkha Nolakha” hasn’t ended yet, and Qayaas hits again. The news about Qayaas is like, it is back with two new tracks-Cut My Wings and Doobtay. The band got its fame after its collaboration with Atif Aslam on the platform of Coke studio, back in last summer.
“Charkha Nolakha was the biggest hit of season five of Coke Studio and now we are working on those lines to produce more tracks by merging genres,” said khurram Waqar (the band’s producer and the lead guitarist). Adding more surprise for the fans, Waqar revealed that the band has a plan to release 2 songs every month, one in English and one in Urdu — and then, by the end of the year, compile it into an album.
The band’s lead vocalist, Umair Jaswal described the theme of the songs and said,“When people are done taking the right path and nothing is working out for them, they give in to malevolence and accept defeat, that’s what the song [Cut My Wings] is all about.” While Cut My Wings is an extremely loud and aggressive track, Doobtay is mellow and heartfelt. “Doobtay is a sad song which starts off with a question and the whole song is a conversation between two people,” said Jaswal.
“The track is more eastern-classical with a melancholic feel to it — lots of darkness has been mixed in, not just vocal, but even musical, which brings out emotions naturally,” he added.
