On her upcoming sophomore studio effort, ‘Amrat’ (‘Sometimes’ in Arabic), Palestinian multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer Rasha Nahas enters new sonic territory with a bold, candid, two-chapter album. The record features Arabic- language lyrics in its entirety, marking Nahas’ first release in her mother tongue as a follow-up to her theatrical-poetic rock debut, ‘Desert’ (2021).
‘Amrat’ is a body of work laden with nostalgia and longing. Structured as two distinctive chapters of music, the album conjures a sonic backdrop that is fluid yet clearly defined. It maneuvers seamlessly between the thematic duality of urban and rural landscapes, as well as an aural one – oscillating between contemporary electronica and the rawness of the old- school, singer-songwriter era.
