Tell us about your journey. How did you decide to pursue a career in music? Is this something you always wanted to do?

With time, it grew more and more apparent to us that this was what was needed to be done.

How did you guys meet?

We both met at a gig for HBL when we were both still in university. We got to know each other there, one thing led to another and we started making songs together.

What are your hobbies outside of singing and performing?

Roshaan likes to play Fifa and F1 (along with other story based games), learn languages, and meditate. Hassan likes photography and cricket.

Has your perception of the entertainment industry in Pakistan changed overtime? If yes, how?

Our perception only changed with the changing landscape of the Pakistani music scene. When we started out, the industry was as expected, barren. But now, thanks to all of the new artists and of course the listeners, the industry is on the right track.

People in Pakistan don’t consider music or singing a “proper” profession. Did you have trouble with your parents or families when you decided to pursue this career?

Although Hassan and I were both graduates of Economics, during our university years we had to decide (at different points in our lives) if we wanted to get a job in the field of economics or strive to become a musician in Pakistan. Of course we had consider all factors and take a decision that was the most practical for us, which is why both of us eventually decided to become musicians.

What does the process of making look like for you guys?

Each song has its own story. Some songs come out smooth like butter, but for some our ideas just LOVE to take their sweet sweet time 🙂

What’s your favourite part about being a musician?

The one of a kind, special bond we get to build with our listeners.

Name three things on your bucket list.

Collaborate with an international level A-lister artist – Do at least one show in all the continents of the world (except Antarctica of course) – Fix the muslim shower in my washroom (like, you have to turn the entire tap offotherwise it just keeps leaking its just…annoying as hell…and I keep PROCRASTINATING TO GET A NEW ONE) (actually, after im done with this interview im going to get a new one…DONE)

Who is your inspiration?

There are many figures we look up to for various reasons——- but if we were to summarise it would be AR Rahman for both Hassan & Roshaan, and Diego Maradona for Roshaan

Describe your perfect day offwhen youre not working.

For Roshaan its a peaceful day of gaming while listening to a bossa nova playlist, for Hassan its cricket, photography and meditation.

What advice do you have for aspiring musicians?

Focus on becoming unique not skillful. Dont get us wrong, skill is a great thing and its really really good to practice your craft, but the intention should be to become one of a kind and to aid your own unique expression, not to acquire skill without knowing what to do with it. Consistently keep creating and releasing music and you will eventually find your audience. right things willl come to you at the right time.

Good Times
